Two words...Basil Lemonade!


We've been continuing our study on THE EXCELLENT WIFE...(i still have quite a ways to go)....

BUT....last night wonderful neighbor, JUDY, pulled out all the hospitality stops at study. Many taste treats I'll be sharing.

I don't cook that much, but i can steal a good recipe!

This is just lovely, light and wonderful!!!


Ingredients

* 1/2 cup rinsed lightly packed fresh basil leaf
* 3 tablespoons sugar
* 4 cups water
* 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
* 1 sprig fresh basil

Directions

* In a 1 1/2 to 2 Qt glass bowl, combine basil leaves and sugar.
* With a wooden spoon, crush leaves with sugar until thoroughly bruised;
add water and lemon juice,
* Stir until sugar is dissolved, about 2 minutes;
* Taste and add more sugar if desired.
* Pour through a strainer into ice-filled glasses.
* Garnish with sprigs of fresh basil. (i'm a good garnisher...my kind of "cooking")
