Need a refreshing summer beverage to keep cool this summer? Try one of my summer sipper creations or use the ideas to create your own unique combination of flavors.
I have 3 herb pots this year on my back porch. I use the herbs in my cooking a lot but I decided to try using them in my drinks as well.
Thai Basil Lemonade
I made a batch of homemade lemonade (You can use any lemonade really.) and added some of the Thai basil from my herb pot to give it a nice herbal flavor. Quite simply, I added thai basil to my favorite lemonade recipe.
Lemon, Blueberry and Mint Cooler
Raspberry Sun Tea
I put 2 family sized tea bags in a glass jar and set it outside in the sunlight for about an hour. I stirred in a few Tablespoons of sugar and then poured myself a nice big glass of tea. I added some frozen raspberries to make it even cooler and because I love the raspberry flavor in my tea. The longer the raspberries sit in the tea, the more flavor the drink will absorb.
