Basil Lemonade

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.

Bsil Lemonade
Recipe type: drink
  • runny acacia honey - about 50 ml
  • 3-4 lemons
  • lots of fresh basil
  • water about 500 ml
  1. Take 1l bottle and put the honey in it.
  2. Wash the lemons. Then they need to be squeezed of the juice and then cut quite small so they fit in the bottle.
  3. Pour the lemon juice on top of the honey followed by the pieces of lemon and then the basil.
  4. 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.
  5. Put the bottle into the fridge over night so that the lemon really gets to infuse with the honey and the water.
  6. Serve with ice and add some more basil to fresh everything up at the end. It's fantastic and the girls love it!
