On a hot summer day there are very few things that I find quite as refreshing as a tall glass of lemonade over ice. Especially if it is freshly squeezed! Thanks to my in-laws I have recently discovered a love for mint. They gave me some mint plants from their yard and I have been obsessed with putting it in water with lemon. So recently when I stumbled upon Mint & Basil Lemonade when wandering the web, my mouth started watering. I am loving mint and basil is in my top 5 favorite herbs, so it was a no brainer really!
- 1/2 cup fresh MINT LEAVES, loosely packed
- 1/2 cup fresh BASIL LEAVES, loosely packed
