Ginger Tea Lemonade with Basil 

We had to add this fabulous drink from Giada de Laurentiis—author and host of The Next  Network Star and Giada’s Kitchen. It can be made with or without alcohol, and is so refreshing after a long day. The ginger gives it a great kick and you already know how we feel about English Breakfast tea!

Ingredients

2 cups water
3 black (such as English Breakfast) tea bags
2 cups fresh basil leaves, packed
1 1/2 cups Ginger Simple Syrup (recipe follows)
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (approximately 3 lemons)
1 cup sparkling water or club soda, chilled
2 cups ice
lemon slices for garnish

Instructions

In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil over high heat. Remove pan from heat and add tea bags. Stir and allow mixture to cool to room temperature, approximately 20 minutes. Remove tea bags and discard. Lay basil leaves on a cutting board and cover with a sheet of plastic wrap. Using a rolling pin, roll over the basil to bruise the leaves. Remove plastic wrap and add basil to tea. Pour in ginger simple syrup and lemon juice. Refrigerate mixture for 1 hour. Just before serving, add the sparkling water to mixture. Place ice in a large pitcher and pour lemonade over ice. Garnish with lemon slices and serve.
