Recently, I have been mixing various herbs and fruits with water. This one is one of my favorites! It's super simple!
You Will Need...
~a small handful of fresh basil
~juice from quarter of a lemon
1) With your hands, rip a small handful of fresh basil and put it into your favorite glass.
2) Squeeze the juice out of a quarter of a lemon in the glass with the basil.
3) Fill the glass a quarter of the way up with crushed ice and mix the ingredients.
4) Add water and stir!
