I am crazy about Strawberry Lemonade. And I love to make it homemade. I have a great Strawberry lemonade recipe that is a go to recipe for summer at our home. But it is just your basic recipe. What I really like to do is spice it up. And sometimes I really do like to try some different spices.
While I was web surfing, I came across this terrific Strawberry lemonade recipe that actually adds the spice, basil. I knew I would love it. And the addition of vodka may be right up your alley. But you could also think about rum or a number of other liquors that would taste great too. Give this a try. Follow the link for the recipe.
How many of you like lemonade? Do you make your own or buy the powdered kind from the store. I for one prefer to make my own at home. Just this past week my parents brought me about 10 pounds of fresh lemons from a friends tree in Tucson, AZ. They were HUGE! I mean giant, huge lemons. And you know what they say… when life hands you lemons… you should make strawberry basil lemonade (alcohol optional!)
It has seriously been 80 degrees this week in LA. Its perfect spring/summer weather for me. I am fairly certain that I have improved my tan by at least 2 shades this week just from my runs and driving with the windows down. It’s pretty amazing to say the least. I guess this is why I pay an obscene amount of money for rent. But whatever. It is what it is! I don’t know about you, but when I think of sitting outside and just the summer time in general, I immediately start thinking about refreshing cocktails or other drinks. I just automatically think of sitting with my girlfriends on the beach in Mexico with cocktails. They key to a refreshing spring/summer time cocktail is making sure it isn’t crazy strong because you want to be able to have a few, and you want it to be refreshing and light!
