Leisure Time

Happy Friday, Everyone,

Nutrition Irene Jones

Today is Friday, July 2, 2021; it is the evening where I am.

If you are in the United States, mostly today and on Monday, July 5, 2021, many people celebrate the 4th of July Holiday.

Some may be going on a weekend vacation. Some may be getting the grills ready. Some may be finding that time for relaxation. Usually, in the United States, it is BBQ time for many families to get together to eat, talk, laugh, and spend time for this Holiday.

However, you spend time on this Holiday you may want to consider trying.

This suggestion also applies to those that are in Australia right now, where the weather is different.

Blackcurrant and Lemon Verbena Tisane

"A warm, comforting fruity drink that will revive you on a

cold winter's night. It is also excellent served chilled on

a hot summer's day."


2 1/2 cups boiling water

1 tbsp fresh or frozen blackcurrants

10 lemon verbena leaves

brown sugar (optional)

  1. Pour the boiling water over the blackcurrants and lemon verbena leaves and leave to infuse for about 5 minutes, or longer to taste.

  2. Strain the liquid into cups or tall glasses and decorate with a sprig of lemon verbena. If you prefer a sweeter drink, stir in 1 tsp of brown sugar.
