Drink of the Week: The Verbena Royale at Park Chow

There are few herbs as fragrant as lemon verbena, and Park Chow (1240 Ninth Ave. at Lincoln) takes full advantage of its bouquet and flavor in the Verbena Royale. A sophisticated blend of Lillet and prosecco is dusted with microbits of the herb, with a garnish of whole leaves that marinate in the mix. On a recent visit, we couldn't stop rubbing and inhaling them. We even insisted that our server take a sniff, to which she let out a genuine “Ooh!” and thanked us for the experience. Even when it's cold outside, you can warm up under the heat lamps of Park Chow's charming rooftop dining area and get a whiff of summertime.
