This red, white and blue Sparkling Berry Basil Lemonade is a delicious, refreshing drink your family will love! Alcoholic and non-alcoholic versions.
I love fresh fruit lemonades in the summer – they are light, refreshing, delicious, and totally addictive.
Plus, they are beautiful, and are a great way to bring bright, beautiful color to a party!
I’m taking one of my favorite lemonades- a simple strawberry recipe – and upping the flavor with some basil, as well as adding lots of bubbles!
And you know what goes even better with this delicious drink?
A cold $500 to wash it down!!! I teamed up with some of my favorite bloggers to bring you a summer bonus – $500 in cold hard cash!
For details, and how to enter, head here (and be sure to check out the gorgeous summer recipes my friends and I are all sharing today for an epic summer cookout):
This drink is naturally red, white, and blue – perfect for a 4th of July picnic or party- without being overly sweet or too cutesy to be served all summer long.
It is the perfect treat for a hot summer day!
Kick up the flavor even more by letting the fruit sit in the punch overnight before serving – simply leave the champagne or dry soda and ice out until right before serving. This lets the juice infuse with even more delicious fresh fruit flavor!
Wondering where my basil leaves are??
