It’s no news for you the fact that we’ve declared shop bought juices a war. And well since then we’ve been exploring with home made drinks and you already know how much my girls like lemonade.
And so because they do a couple of days ago I tried something different. I went to the market to but some mint to add to our so called sugar free lemonade. But…when I got home I realised that instead of buying a pot of mint I bought a pot of basil. Well…that is not a such a big thing as it was still fresh.
So if you want to make a basil lemonade like the one I made above all you have to do is to use the ingredients and the steps I used below.
- runny acacia honey - about 50 ml
- 3-4 lemons
- lots of fresh basil
- water about 500 ml
- Take 1l bottle and put the honey in it.
- Wash the lemons. Then they need to be squeezed of the juice and then cut quite small so they fit in the bottle.
- Pour the lemon juice on top of the honey followed by the pieces of lemon and then the basil.
- Top up with water, put the lid on and then shake the bottle a little so that all the ingredients mix better with each other.
- Put the bottle into the fridge over night so that the lemon really gets to infuse with the honey and the water.
- Serve with ice and add some more basil to fresh everything up at the end. It's fantastic and the girls love it!
