Basil Lemonade

We even got some local produce into the drinks at the party. The basil made the lemonade special, still a cool and refreshing drink with an extra little twist. My friend said it wasn’t hard to make – so make it anytime for a little something special. She didn’t have the purple basil, but the basil from her garden worked great. She also doubled the recipe, and 10 of us at the party were each able to have a glass.

  1. From the maker: This recipe was super easy to make. I used a food processor to crush up the basil, and just strained it through a standard metal strainer. There were tiny bits of basil that made its way through, but that just added extra flavor to the lemonade. Overall, it was a nice twist on an oldtime favorite. I would definitely serve it again.
