A long, cool and refreshingly elegant drink made from fresh basil and lemon - the perfect summer sip.
Combine the fresh basil leaves in a bowl with the sugar and crush gently with a muddler or wooden spoon, until thoroughly bruised. Add 4 cups water and ½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice. Stir until sugar is dissolved (l - 2 minutes). Taste and add more sugar if desired. Pour through fine strainer into ice-filled glasses. Garnish with springs of fresh basil.
