You did not exaggerate. It IS nirvana. Made it tonight, using fresh-squeezed lemons and used still water, not carbonated. Next time, I'll sweeten it with a basil/ginger infused simple syrup, and maybe serve it over crushed ice... Very refreshing, beguiling flavors and the kids even liked it!
I enjoyed this quite a bit -- I made it using club soda, lemon juice and sugar. I think I added too little ginger, but I could definitely taste the basil.
okay so I wasn't that crazy about this lemonade, I don't know if it was the diet crystal light taste that I didn't care for or if I got to heavy handed with the basil but it just wasn't nirvana for me :( I will try it once more using fresh lemons or country time and see how it goes, thanks for sharing, I just need to tweak this a bit.
This is delicious! I also tried it with a shot of Vodka and it makes a wonderful martini...thanks for sharing!
Lip smacking Good!
It's even better with limeade, I had this while in Ecuador. Yum!
