Make and share this Basil Lemonade recipe from Food.com.
- In a small saucepan over medium heat, bring the Splenda and 1.5 cups cold water to a simmer. Cook, without stirring, until the Splenda dissolves and the mixture thickens slightly, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, add the basil, and let cool to room temperature. Strain the syrup into a resealable container and discard the solid remnants. Pour 2 to 3 teaspoons of the basil syrup into each of 4 ice-filled glasses, then fill each with the diet lemonade. Garnish with an additional sprig of basil. You can cover and refrigerate the remaining syrup for up to 2 weeks!
