Summer Basil Lemonade

Since Basil seems to be thriving in the heat and humidity this summer, I find it necessary to use it in as many recipes as I can find! Try this special lemonade to quench your summertime thirst away. This is a favorite that has appeared on our website in the past. Always good.
