Here is a refreshing, easy to make Lemon & Basil Spritzer. It’s the perfect thing for sipping in your back yard or amongst friends at a BBQ.

Ingredients:

– juice of 1 small lemon

– 2 – 3 large basil leaves (ripped into pieces)

– 1 tbsp. white sugar

– 1.5 oz vodka (optional)

 

First start by making a simple syrup – 1 tbsp. white sugar dissolved in 1 tbsp water. (set aside)
