I love a quick twist on a classic cocktail: it makes an evening a little more special. I was recently looking at the patch of lemon balm in my garden and thinking that it would be a fresh and fragrant addition to a gin and tonic.
Lemon Balm G&T
Prep time: 10 minutes

- 2 tablespoons lemon balm simple syrup (made by boiling 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of water and 2 handfuls of lemon balm leaves down to syrup consistency)
