YUM! Blueberry basil lemonade!

Blueberries 1

Ninety degree temps ... a basil plant that is soooo bushy ... and an abundance of blueberries at the market ... what do you do with all of that? You make blueberry & basil lemonade to cool off on the deck! The ingredients are simple: washed berries, basil leaves, honey, lemonade, ice.

Tear some basil into a tall glass ... add a small handful of blueberries and a dollop of honey.

Use a wood spoon to mash the berries and basil just enough to crush them and release their juice and flavor.

Fill the glass to the brim with ice cubes. Pour over your favorite lemonade and give it a quick stir to mix the berries and basil flavors. Garnish with a basil leaf and a few blueberries. It's so delicious!!

For a gathering you can make a pitcher full. For a boozy drink ... add vodka or even blueberry vodka! So good. Bottoms up!!
