Iced Coffee with Lemon Verbena Syrup

Having enjoyed our first cups of coffee hot with breakfast (despite the 80ºF weather), we decided to switch over to iced coffee when we engaged in a bit of afternoon reading.

With all this fuss about using our infusions, the idea arose, why not add a bit of lemon verbena syrup? To see how it tasted?
And how did it taste?
Well, you really must try it for yourself, but I would compare it (in some ways) to a chai latte. Definitely herbal. With a hint of citrus. And a lovely aroma.

I'm pleased to report that the last few chapters of The Hummingbird's Daughter (Urrea) were greatly sweetened by a cup of this fantastic infusion.
Delicioso café!

  3. this looks delicious- but i may try the syrup for a summery iced tea instead of coffee. i bet it would work beautifully.

    thanks for the recipe.
