      This was really refreshing and tasty. I have added one teaspoon at a time to a glass of seltzer, and also a glass of unsweetened iced green tea. This is really not sweet at all, but just adds the right tartness and sweetness from the basil. I love this, and am thinking of all different beverages to add it to! After making, I refrigerated it in a container and just keep dipping into it as I need to. Thanks for sharing this unique treat! Made for ZWT6.

      This is really good! I added the finished syrup to 1 liter of seltzer water and garnished with lemon wedges from a third lemon I had on hand. It was very refreshing and enjoyable. Thanks for sharing!
