Deb's Basil Lemonade

Simple summer recipe - quite refreshing

  • Make simple syrup - equal parts water and sugar - by heating on a stovetop, and while dissolving sugar add basil. Once sugar is dissolved and basil blanched, remove basil and pour combination into pitcher.
  • Add not-quite-equal amount of lemon juice (approx 3:5 ratio)
  • Add water to fill pitcher. Stir, adding lemon juice or simple syrup to taste.
  • Add ice and serve.
