Last Summer Sunday Sweetness


For the last chilly Sunday of Summer our girls nabbed much of the crowd leaving Golden Gate Park's Comedy Day with their homemade lemonade stand. It was, clearly, quite the place to be.


Lemon Verbena Lemonade

15 lemons, fine zest (2 teaspoons) and juice (2 cups)
1 1/2 cup fine sugar, or to taste
2 good stems Lemon Verbena, for about 15 plucked leaves, rinsed
3 to 4 cups cold water
ice

Mix the lemon, zest, sugar and hand-crushed verbena leaves. Let sit for about 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is dissolved and the verbena has imparted its flavor. Add water to taste and pour over ice.
