Thai Basil Lemonade




Lemonade is really a summer drink but why not enjoy it all year, in fact winter is citrus season. We enjoy winter citrus especially Meyer lemons from California and honeybells from Florida. We still have a little fresh basil in the garden but I am not sure for how much longer but you can find it in grocery stores and Thai basil in your local Asian store. Our wee man helped me make this simply love involving the kids in the kitchen.


Ingredients:

  • 2 lemons, squeezed
  • sugar to taste about 2 tablespoons 
  • one cup of water 
  • a few crushed Thai basil leaves 
  • a handful of ice
Method:

  1. juice the lemons, mix with sugar, water and basil
  2. pour over ice 
  3. enjoy 






Whatever the season we can create sunshine in the kitchen and wear a smile
