It’s officially summer in my house, the kids are off on summer break. Since they go back to school in August, they don’t call it summer vacation anymore, it’s just a break.
I love when my kids are home. Yes, no homework or projects may be one reason, but I really feel sometimes that I hardly get to see them and they are growing so fast!
I now have two in middle school. Wow has time flown by. I hope they aren’t too old to have a lemonade stand this year, because I think this Blueberry Basil Lemonade would be the best lemonade to serve at a lemonade stand, along with homemade cookies of course.
Look what I found….
This was taken 9 years ago. Wow! my little girl has grown!
Don’t let time fly by, enjoy some delicious lemonade!
Blueberry Basil Lemonade
For each lemon or 1/2 cup lemon juice add
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup blueberries
4 fresh basil leaves
12-18 oz water depending on how strong you like your lemonade
Blend it with an immersion blender then strain it. Pour over ice in a shaker, strain and serve. If you prefer your lemonade on ice, fill glass half way with ice and enjoy.
For delicious “hard lemonade” add a shot of vodka to your shaker and this will soon become your favorite cocktail.

I shared this recipe with Gourmet Orchards, I made this lemonade with their August Lemons and they were so delicious and juicy it didn’t require as many lemons and I would have normally used.
