Doesn't it look delicious? I can assure you that it is! :) Just the perfect hint of basil, but not overpowering. If you'd like to make this wonderful beverage I have two recipes for you. First:
Best Ever Lemonade
adapted from Allrecipes.com
- 1 3/4 c sugar
- 8 c water
- 1 1/2 c lemon juice
Remove seeds from lemon juice, but leave pulp. In a pitcher, stir together chilled syrup, lemon juice and remaining 7 cups water.

- 1 c sugar
- 1 c fresh basil leaves, plus springs for garnishing
- 8 c lemonade
Remove from heat, add the basil, and let cool to room temperature. Strain the syrup into a resealable container and discard the solids.
Pour 2-3 teaspoons of the basil syrup into each of 8 ice-filled glasses, then fill with lemonade. Garnish with a sprig of basil.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Cheers!
