Summer is the season of lemonade. And basil. And basil lemonade!
I have to admit, I didn’t really get why people love lemonade in the summer until this year. It’s just never been my thing. But last year, my mom gave me a huge stack of old cooking magazines, and when leafing through them for recipe inspiration I saw a recipe for basil lemonade. How amazing does that sound? Basically, you take two amazing components of a foodie’s summer and smash them together into a refreshing and delicious beverage. And who doesn’t like smashing things?
I made this recipe for my (somewhat) recent cooking demo at Natural Grocers in Fargo, and I’ve finally honed the recipe and photographed it. Hooray!
