  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves, plus 8 sprigs for garnishing
  • 8 cups lemonade



Step 1

In a small saucepan, over medium heat, bring the sugar and 1 1/2 cup cold water to a simmer. Cook without stirring, until the sugar dissolves and the mixture thickens slightly, about 5 minutes.

Remove from heat, add the basil, and let cool to room temperature. Strain the syrup into a resealable container and discard the solids.

Pour 2 to 3 tsp. of the basil syrup into each of 8 ice filled glasses, then fill with lemonade. Garnish with an additional sprig of basil. (You can cover and refrigerate the remaining syrup for up to 2 weeks).
