I’m usually a fan of ice cold water, but this basil mint lemonade is the most refreshing drink I’ve ever had. Forget all other summer drinks and make this.
OHHHHHHHH You’ve all been so patient waiting for this Basil Mint Lemonade, but I’ve finally got it all up for you! Hoooray! Remember the event back at Harmons? Yes, well this is the lemonade that I thought was so fabulous. I really cannot begin to tell you how refreshing it is. It’s so unexpected. You take a sip, fully anticipating lemonade, just regular old lemonade and then at the very end you get this light, fresh zip of mint and then a little basil.
I know some of you may be skeptical, but I’m serious, it’s sooooo fantastic! I cannot wait for summer and I’ll for sure be drinking this every day. Won’t it be wonderful for BBQ’s, pool parties etc?I love the thought of using it for summer wedding receptions, baby showers etc. I love the citric water, but this really is so yum!
