Berry Basil Lemonade
This homemade Berry Basil Lemonade is a cool, sweet and refreshing non-alcoholic summer drink / beverage, made with fresh strawberries, blueberries, lemons, and basil, and is perfect for a picnic or poolside party.
- 1-1/2 cups fresh lemon juice juice from about 6 lemons
- 10 cups of water
- 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
- 1/2 cup fresh strawberries sliced
- 1 bunch basil leaves
- 1 to 2 squeezes of SPLENDA ZERO™ Liquid Sweetener for each glass
- 3 -4 Lemons sliced for garnish
In a large pitcher combine the water and lemon juice. Add slices of fresh lemon for presentation. Instead of sweetening the entire pitcher, I sweeten each glass of lemonade.
In each glass pour the lemonade 2/3 full. Squeeze in one or two drops of SPLENDA ZERO™ Liquid Sweetener and stir.
Add in 2 or 3 basil leaves, 5 or 6 blueberries, and several slices of strawberries. Add slices of lemons, if desired.
