Ok, so I am came across this incredible Strawberry Basil Lemonade recipe from What's Gaby Cooking and I needed to make it. Its pretty much everything I love in one glass. Strawberries, lemonade, basil & a little sweet!! Since I pretty much have the biggest sweet tooth ever. Also, its the perfect combination of homemade lemonade and fresh fruit puree.
This drink can be even better, because its perfect with a little vodka or gin, too! Depending on what event I'm going to or who's drinking with me, I will add either sparkling water or gin or vodka. Its perfect both ways!
Anyway, this is my new favorite drink and I am pretty much obsessed, so you should be too! Oh, and you should grab some lemons and strawberries and make this over the weekend!
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Total Time: 20 Minutes
8-10 Strawberries tops removed
8 Lemons- Juiced
4 Cups of Water (Still or Sparkling)
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 fresh basil
First juice the lemons and add to the pitcher. Add the water and the sugar to the lemon juice mixture and stir until dissolved. With an immersion blender, blend the strawberries and basil for 10 seconds or until completely pureed. If you don't have an immersion blender, use a food processor or blender and add separately to the mixture. Stir and serve over ice!
