Frosty and Refreshing Basil Lemonade

The smell of basil reminds me of summer.  I love cooking with it.  The fresh flavor adds a nice punch to recipes.  It's so versatile.  One of my favorite seasonal flavors is the basil gelato sold at Whole Foods.  It's next on my things to make!

 This recipe was inspired by a drink I had at a local cafe.  My twist makes it equally refreshing, by blending the ingredients to create a frosty drink.

 One sip and it takes you away to someplace tropical.

 Ingredients

1/2 cup sugar
juice from about 7 medium-size lemons
about 12 basil leaves
1 cup water
ice


Directions

Place ingredients into blender and blend until combined and texture is smooth.  Makes enough for two glasses.  One for you and one to share with a friend!
