Sunny weather calls for
a celebration! Grab some lemons, strawberries and a handful of fresh basil and
let’s make some cocktails or mocktails.
10 lemons, juiced, about 1 cup of fresh lemon juice
3/4 cup super fine sugar
4 cups water
8-10 strawberries, tops removed
1/3 cup fresh basil
1/2 cup gin or vodka (optional)
Juice the lemons and transfer the juice into a large pitcher.
Add the sugar and the water and stir to combine and dissolve the sugar.
Add the strawberries and basil.
Using an immersion blender, blend the mixture for about 20 seconds just until the mixture turns pink and the basil is finely chopped.
Add alcohol if desired. Serve over crushed ice and enjoy!
