  • melissa - 10 - 15 bunches
  • water - 4 1/5 cups (1 liter)
  • sugar - 2 lb (1 kg)
  • citric acid - 1 packet
  • dye - yellow, optional


Be sure to pick Melissa leaves before the plant blooms, that's when they're most aromatic.

Wash the Melissa bunches and put them in a suitable container, sprinkle with the citric acid and pour in the water. Leave to sit as is in the fridge for at least 48 hours.

Then strain through a gauze, add the sugar and stir until completely dissolved.

Optionally, add a little yellow dye for a more appetizing appearance (don't use green to avoid confusion with mint).

Distribute into jars and store in the fridge.

Another option is to sterilize 5 min. in the jars - that way you'll have canned syrup year-round.

It makes for a very refreshing summer beverage when diluted with sparking water or water.
