Verbena Spritzers
Aloysia citrodora, or lemon verbena, was brought to Spain in the mid-18th century and named the “herb of the Princess” in honor of Maria Luisa of Parma. In honor of Charles IV, the princess’s husband and king-- and a great supporter of modern agriculture--I present my Verbena Spritzer. Delicious and refreshing no matter what the century!
