I like to get creative in the kitchen and this means I often play around with nontraditional ingredients and combinations just for fun (the same goes with fashion and design- it’s best to mix it up!). Sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn’t but today I have a little recipe for you guys that was a definite success.
Add the following ingredients to your favorite jug of lemonade and you’ll end up with a refreshing and beyond delicious drink to sip on your porch for the rest of the summer!
1 spring of Fresh lavender (or 4 basil leaves)
2 tbsp honey
1 large lemon
1 cup of raspberries
Be bold and play with some other combinations as well! Mint, basil and rosemary all make delicious alternatives to the lavender. Let me know if you give this a try!
P.S. what’s your favorite summer beverage? Leave the recipe below so we can all give it a whirl!
A lovely, lime refreshment! http://justapinchofginger.com/2013/05/03/cool-lime-copycat/
Totally going to try this with the basil I LOVE basil and l am always looking for different ways to use it.
