Strawberry Basil Mint Lemonade Recipe for Summer

Strawberry Basil Mint Lemonade

I was on a search for a great lemonade recipe when I cam across this beauty on the Disney Family website. The Strawberry Basil Mint Lemonade caught my eye because I have a ton of strawberries that I have harvested today. I mean I have bowls full. It feel like I am in some Strawberry Shortcake alternate dimension. haha! I have been coming up with ways to use them: jellies, pies, and even freeze them for frozen snacks. Now I can add Lemonade to the list and with the temps skyrocketing past the tolerable stage, a cooling drink is well at the top of my list.

The dog days of summer are here! What better way to cool off than with a tall glass of strawberry basil mint lemonade?! Now this is not your typical lemonade. This lemonade is tart and sweet with an minty zing you’ll love. The pureed strawberries bring all the flavors together to make this refreshing drink a summer favorite to enjoy at the beach or poolside. It’s a perfect drink for garden parties and a relaxing warm day on your front porch. Enjoy! Disney Family
