Recipe by Carolyn
"I tweaked this recipe it to make a refreshing drink. I love basil and this recipe has a wonderful basil-infused flavor. Delicious on a warm day or with grilled chicken. Serve over ice and garnish with fresh basil and lemon slices."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 (12 ounce) can
frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
fresh lime juice
firmly packed torn basil leaves
A little on the sweet side for us so I'd most likely eliminate the sugar if using the concentrate. We enjoyed the subtle basil flavor which partners well with the lemon. I make freshly-squeezed lemons often, so I think I'll incorporate the basil the next time I make it (when the price of lemons goes down!). A nice twist on lemonade.
My family loves this refreshing drink! I use Splenda instead of sugar and perhaps a bit extra basil.
it was too sweet as written and not enough basil flavor. i made it again and instead of steeping the basil leaves in there, I made the lemonade from concentrate without the sugar or the lime juice and poured some of it in the blender and blended the basil leaves in the lemonade, let it sit a few minutes, and strained it to remove the chunks. it gives the lemonade a green color but very good taste.

The key to this lemonade is keeping the lemon pulp. Yum!
