Nobody wants to be outside on a hot day without a refreshing drink in their hand. Luckily, Flavorman has three new recipes that will keep you cool this summer.
Ginger Basil Limeade
Combine basil leaves and sugar in a pitcher.
Crush leaves with a wooden spoon until well-bruised.
Add water and lime juice and stir until sugar is dissolved.
Add ginger beer and stir until combined.
Serve over ice, garnished with a sprig of fresh basil.*To make a refreshing cocktail, add 1.5oz of vodka to each glass for an herbal twist on a Moscow Mule!
Honey Mint Grapefruit-ade
In a pitcher, combine honey syrup and mint.
Muddle until the mint is well-bruised.
Add water and grapefruit juice and stir to combine.
Serve over ice, garnished with a fresh mint sprig.*To make a refreshing cocktail, replace water with 1 cup of bourbon.
Hibiscus Tea (Jamaica) + Lemonade
Just before serving, add lemon juice and remaining water (still or sparkling), to taste to the hibiscus tea.
Serve over ice, garnished with a lemon wheel or a fresh hibiscus flower.*To make a refreshing cocktail, replace 1 cup of water from the lemonade with 1 cup of gin. We suggest a floral gin like Hendricks.
