The Refreshing & Tart Lemon and Basil Mocktail

This mocktail is one of my favorite beverages to enjoy during a hot summer day. The lemon juice provides a tart flavor, while the basil brings in a sweet, yet slightly spicy taste.

To prepare this mocktail, just a few simple steps are required.

That’s all there is to it! I love making this mocktail when I have homemade spaghetti on the weekly menu. This is a great way to use up the basil leaves before they go bad!

Looking for More Mocktail Ideas?

Mocktails provide hydration, added nutrients, flavor, and a make for a fun addition to any brunch, baby shower, or backyard wedding. If you are looking for other mocktail options, I love the classic Sunset Sweets Mocktail and Appletini Mocktail – not only are they delicious and easy to make, they add some great color to any table spread! The Sweet Dreams Cherry Mocktail is another beverage I would recommend as a delicious nightcap that can be used to promote a good night’s sleep.
