The summer sun has us daydreaming of delicious drinks (or cocktail, your choice) outside with family and friends.  You can shake things up this season by using fresh herbs, straight from your garden.  One of our favorite infused (or detox as they are known) refreshers this time of year is Strawberry Lemon Basil Water and it’s a great way to bring the garden to your glass!


  • ¼ cup of fresh strawberries, sliced
  • 1 lemon slice, quartered
  • Handful of basil, 6 to 8 leaves, scrunched in your hand (to release the aromatic oils)
  • 3 cups or more of ice, enough to fill pitcher halfway


Place all ingredients in a pitcher and pour water over it.  Chill for at least 2 hours before serving.


The more the fruit sits in the water, the more flavor you get!
