I just came across the most wonderful summer drink on Tastespotting. You have to make this instantly! I knew without a doubt that this drink would be delicious because of the strawberry mozzarella salad I make regularly. It would be perfect at any party, shower or for lounging by the pool.
Strawberry Basil Lemonade from What's Gaby Cooking
10 Lemons juiced
3/4 cup of sugar
4 cups of water
8-10 strawberries, hulled
1/3 cup of fresh basil
Juice the lemons and transfer the juice to a large pitcher. Add the sugar and the water, stir to combine. Add the strawberries and the fresh basil. Using an immersion blender, blend the mixture for about 20 seconds until everything becomes pink and the basil is finely chopped. Serve with lots of crushed ice and enjoy!
*If you do not have an immersion blender, add all the ingredients to a regular blender and it turns out just fine.
