DIRECTIONS

  • Heat together the water, basil, vanilla bean and sugar in a large saucepan. When it just comes to a simmer, put on a tight fitting lid, remove from the heat and set aside to steep for 20 minutes.
  • Strain, add the lemon juice, and chill.
  • Do not scrape the vanilla bean. Set it aside to dry and store to reuse the next time.
  • Divide the lemonade among 4 - 6 tall, ice filled glasses and garnish with the lemon wedges and basil sprigs.
