I haven't tried this yet, but it was such an unusual and interesting combination of flavors, I couldn't resist posting it here. Times are estimates and don't include cooling of the mixture.

  • Stir in the remaining 1 1/2 cups water, the remaining nectarine, sliced thin, and the lemon juice.
  • Divide the lemonade among tall glasses filled with ice cubes and garnish each drink with some of the additional basil.

    This is a really special lemonade recipe. It's hard to describe. You can definately taste and smell the fresh basil in the drink. It would be a perfect drink for a garden lunch or party. It turns out a lovely light peach color. Thanks for posting it.
