Strawberry Basil Lemonade

With the sun going down later in the evening, we like to end our nights out on the patio. While Ian likes to crack open a cold beer while we watch the sunset, I often opt for a glass of lemon water. Lately, I’ve wanted to spice things up and thought I would try and recreate a refreshing summer drink I found at a local restaurant – Strawberry Basil Lemonade.

This drink does not require an excess amount of work and makes a simple store bought lemonade feel indulgent. It can be a bit sweet, depending on your taste, so you can water down the lemonade by adding a few more cups of water than instructed.
