I found this on the Martha Stewart website. As the website says, "Don't let an abundance of herbs go to waste. Pluck several types of sprigs -- we chose basil, mint, and thyme -- and use them to flavor a basic sugar syrup. Mix the concoction with ice and sparkling water, then garnish the drinks with additional sprigs. You can also freeze the infused syrup in ice cube trays and enjoy it for up to a month." I have not made the recipe yet, but look forward to doing so!
