Lemon balm + rosemary => balmarie, of course.

Balmarie Cordial

5 cups brandy, 80 proof
1-1/2 cups coarsely chopped fresh lemon balm
3 Tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
sugar syrup (1 part white sugar + 1 part raw sugar + 1 part water, heated till sugar dissolves)

Put brandy and herbs in a large glass container and stir each day for about a week  Keep  the container out of direct sunlight.  Strain through a fine mesh coffee filter or cheesecloth, reserving the liquid.  To each 2 cups of liquid, add about 3/4 cup of sugar syrup, or to taste.
This is another recipe that is essentially period for the SCA.
