School might be starting, but summer isn’t over yet. If you are like easy, fresh cocktails to sip on during a warm summer night, this drink is perfect for you!

We had a good friend of Bryan’s visit a few weeks ago, and she actually introduced us to this combo. I was a little hesitant about basil in my drink at first, but now I am in love! This combo felt so smooth and refreshing. It has definitely become a staple for us now.

Now, if you don’t drink alcohol, there is no reason you can’t enjoy this flavor combo without the vodka. Just make it as a fun twist on lemonade!
