Basil syrup mixed with seltzer and a squeeze of lemon or lime makes a delicious soda. It can also be used with lemon juice and water to make basil lemonade.
After we made our syrup I picked up a small watermelon at a farm stand but got home and discovered that there was no room for it in the refrigerator. We decided to put it in the blender and make watemelon juice. Add it to the basil lemon soda for a beautiful and very refreshing drink.
By the way, I've added a new page to the blog. You may have noticed the Photo Gallery tab at the left already, but if you haven't please take a look!
