  1. Bring 1 cup water to a boil in a saucepan. Stir the sugar and basil into the water and return to a boil; cook at a boil for 10 minutes and immediately remove from heat. Chill in refrigerator until slightly cooled, about 10 minutes.
  2. Blend the blueberries, 1/2 cup water, and the lemon juice in a blender until smooth; pour into a pitcher. Remove the basil leaves from the simple-syrup mixture; discard the basil. Stir the syrup into the blueberry mixture. Add the carbonated water to the mixture and stir gently.

I wanted to taste this so badly but my basil simple syrup burned. Do you really boil for the full ten minutes? Oh well, I had it without the basil and it was delicious?

Yummy blueberry soda (didn't use the basil, seems just too weird!)
