Hi out there. Do you all think I can replace lemon verbena in Agua Fresca with lemon balm? It's more accessible. Thoughts? Feelings?
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)

I think so. I think lemon verbena is more strongly flavored than lemon balm, so you may need to adjust the amount. They taste very similar as far as lemoniness goes.

I grow both, and I think that a lemon balm aqua fresca would be great! Go right ahead, and enjoy it. I used to make lemon balm liquor, and it was delicious.
