Before the boots, plaid and cider, let's raise our glasses to a wonderful summer filled with memories sure to last a lifetime. This cocktail brings to mind long days at the beach, colorful fireworks filling the summer sky and the juiciest watermelon imaginable- I give you, The Lemon Verbena Cocktail.

The Lemon Verbena Cocktail is a light and refreshing cocktail, a perfect farewell to summer. The use of crushed ice is crucial to creating the delicious overall effect. Enjoy!

Lemon Verbena Cocktail

1/2 cup fresh lemon verbena
1/2 of a lemon
2 tbsp. simple syrup
2-3 ounces gin
club soda

Muddle verbena, lemon and simple syrup in the bottom of a tall Collins glass. Add the gin. Put crushed ice on top of the mixture and top off with club soda. Garnish with a lemon wheel.

Did you know that 'happy hour' has now been banned in Scotland as of last week? That's how much of an insane country we are! Loving the cocktail all the same...
