I had to fit in one more Summer cocktail before we start Fall crafts and cocktails. In Arizona, I have high temperatures until October, so this drink will keep me cool for awhile! Infusing lemonade with herbs is such an easy way to make a cocktail. And, you can just keep it as a mocktail and not include the alcohol!
How to Make a Spiked Basil Infused Lemonade
Pink Lemonade (you can make your own or buy pre-made, I like Trader Joe’s low calorie version)
Fresh Basil Leaves
Vodka (optional, not optional if you want your lemonade spiked)
The lemonade cocktail is perfect for a party because it is very simple and you can easily serve a large amount of people without much hassle. And, I like to mingle with my guests at parties, not sit in the kitchen stirring drinks and making food the whole time!
Purchase a huge container of lemonade (or make your own) and add a large bunch of basil leaves to it. Mix and leave in fridge for a couple hours before serving.
Once the party starts, pour a glass and add vodka!
You can also infuse the lemonade with mint instead (or both basil and mint!) We have a huge bumper crop of basil, so I use basil for everything right now!
Cheers to the Summer and here’s hoping for cooler temps soon!
