Strawberry Basil Lemonade

summer = lemonade. it also = strawberry & basil. so mixing all of them together = a no brainer.

Strawberry Basil Lemonade (this makes 2 glasses)
Pink or Yellow Lemonade (i used Newman's Own)
2 large fresh strawberries, sliced
handful of frozen strawberry slices (i slice them, pop them in a ziploc bag & freeze them to use all summer)
5 basil leaves, per glass

Fill each glass about 1/3 of the way with lemonade. Add the basil leaves & fresh strawberries & muddle (i have a muddle stick i use for making mojitos)
Add a handful of frozen strawberry slices to each glass, top off with more lemonade, add a straw & enjoy.

i like to add the frozen strawberries because it keeps the lemonade cold without watering it down. or go ahead & make lemonade ice cubes in advance (which is what i would do if i was making a large batch of this)

what's great is that, unlike the mint & limes in mojitos, you can go ahead & eat the basil & strawberries. Waste not.
Pin It!

Hi, I stopped by to visit your blog. Great post on the lemonade. Putting basil in is an idea I would have never thought of but seems so refreshing. Great idea!
I also write a blog on food, love,recipes and relationships. Stop by and visit. Maybe follow. That would be cool. Thanks!
