Summer makes me think lemonade and this recipe is both delicious and wonderfully free of refined sugar and imitation flavors. I found this recipe in this book.

6 fresh lemon balm leaves
4 fresh lemon verbena leaves
juice of 4 lemons [or 3/4 - 1 c. of organic bottled lemon juice, to taste]
4 c. water
honey, to taste
pinch of salt
1 thinly sliced lemon
generous handful of fresh berries, frozen [optional]

Combine water and juice in bottle. Add honey and mix [or if shaking is an option, shake] well. Add lemon leaves, lemon slices, berries, and ice. Serve immediately.
