Basil Infused Strawberry Lemonade

Pin It

Can I get a show of hands from everyone who is ready to sip something refreshing and fruity on their back decks and patios already? I think I have been ready since about two months ago!
We are currently in the midst of redecorating and updating our back deck, and I am so looking forward to hosting friends and family for cookouts and drinks in our pretty new outdoor space.  I am already dreaming up fruity & refreshing beverages to be sipping out of mason jars while relaxing on the back deck on a warm summer evening...

Last summer I became obsessed with making my own flavorful infused simple syrups.  Simple syrups are such an easy way to sweeten and add flavor to your favorite beverages be it iced tea, mojitos, and of course, lemonade.  For this Basil Infused Strawberry Lemonade recipe, I used a homemade basil infused simple syrup.

And you will have to pop over to my friend Lyuba's blog, Will Cook For Smiles to grab this recipe! :) Sorry for the tease, you all... I am lending a hand to a fellow food blogger & doing a little guest posting today.   Please click on over and get this recipe & stick around for a bit and check out Lyuba's blog, if you are not already following her.  She is always posting tasty recipes with gorgeous photos! :)  One of my personal favorite food bloggers...
