Hello-hello! It’s Aniko from Place Of My Taste. How is everyone’s summer? We are spending some time at the beach these days and I could not bring anything but a nice summer cocktail for you all today. There is not much left from summer, I know…Can not even believe that there is only a few more weeks left. Literally. Today’s cocktail is one of my favorite summer drinks this summer. I found this super simple recipe in BHG magazine few months ago and I knew it will be penciled on my favorites list.
Basil Lemon Drop
- 6 fresh basil leaves
- 3 cups vodka
- 1 1/2 cups lemon juice
- 1 1/2 cups simple syrup
- Ice cubes
- Add basil leaves in a large pitcher. Stir in vodka, lemon juice, and simple syrup. Serve over ice.

I have my little basil plant in my kitchen window so I always have fresh basil on hand if I wold like to create this summery cocktail for Friends. This drink is super refreshing and the basil will add a really nice flavor to it.
I hope you will enjoy this nice summer cocktail as much as I do! I will be back next month with something yummy. It won’t be a summer drink, I promise;-)
Until then, come check out my bedding refresh if you are looking to add some luxury bedding to your bedroom.
Thanks for reading today.
