It seems like only yesterday we were sharing cocktail recipes for Memorial Day weekend. In the blink of an eye summer has come and gone and Labor Day weekend is upon us. Before you start to grieve, we still have one long weekend to go and a smashing cocktail to go with it! Say sayonara to summer with our delicious Spiked Basil Lemonade. This simple recipe has four ingredients basil, vodka, lemonade and simple syrup. If you are feeling up to the challenge, consider adding a splash of Prosecco for a sparkling version of the cocktail. This cocktail is refreshing, tart and sweet. It is the perfect drink for your summer send-off! Don’t just take our word for it, try one this weekend!
1/4 cup basil leaves
