  • 2 cups ice
  • 8 basil leaves
  • 4 oz lemon sliced
  • 3 cups water


  • Add ice to a pitcher/serving glasses. If you plan to make a large batch to refrigerate, skip the ice.
  • Add the leaves. You can use a muddler to crush it slightly to release more fragrance.
  • Add lemon slices. Don’t crush them as this can make your drink too sour.
  • Add water and serve. The longer this water sits, the better it will taste.
