I love basil so much, that it almost makes me want to cook. Almost. (Lucky for me: my husband is the fantastic cook in our home!) Instead, I’ve wondered how basil would taste in Summer drinks. I didn’t have to look far: I consulted my Pinterest board – Festive Drink Recipes – and found these refreshing ideas!
