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.

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. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
