Fresh honey and basil bring a new twist to a classic refreshment.
- 1 cup fresh juice from 10-12 lemons
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 cups basil leaves loosely packed
- 3 cups cold water
- 1 quart ice
- 1 pinch salt
Combine lemon juice, honey, basil leaves, and a pinch of salt in a blender. Blend your concoction on high for about a minute or until smooth.
Filter your mix into a fine mesh strainer over your pitcher. Discard the solids. Add cold water and whisk to combine.
Add ice and garnish with fresh basil for a refreshing hot-weather drink.
