This Basil-Infused Drink Is What You Need In This Hot Day

  Lemon-Recipes-12 Ingredients:

  • cup sugar
  • 1cup fresh basil leaves, plus 8 sprigs for garnishing
  • 8cups lemonade


  • In a small saucepan, over medium heat, bring the sugar and 1 1/2 cups cold water to a simmer. Cook, without stirring, until the sugar dissolves and the mixture thickens slightly, about 5 minutes.
  • 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 to 3 teaspoons of the basil syrup into each of 8 ice-filled glasses, then fill with lemonade. Garnish with an additional sprig of basil.
