Wow, this is an incredible tasting lemonade!!! It was my first time to infuse and I just love the delicate taste of basil with the Watermelon Lemonade. I look forward to making this for Memorial Day Weekend, as I know the whole family will enjoy it. I hope you do too.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
We loved the freshness of this lemonade! The basil flavor is surprisingly light and really adds an earthy lift. This recipe is rather labor intensive, but it's WELL worth it. Make it as-is for the whole family, or experiment with it as a cocktail mixer.

Ingredients

1 c
water
3/4 c
sugar
1 c
fresh basil. thinly sliced
8 c
watermelon, cubed and seeded
1/2 c
fresh lemon juice - about 3 lemons

Hi Samantha, hmmmm I do not think it is too strong at all. But then again, I love basil....so yeah maybe first time making cut it down a little and see how it goes. You can always make it again and add the full amount. I will be excited to hear how you like it......I know right we keep on getting that white fluffy stuff falling from the sky here in Ohio too. LOL
