Basil Ginger Lemonade | Lemonade with Basil and Ginger | Summer Special Recipes

Lemonades are such a refreshing drink during summer. Summer has already started and lemonades make a very good thirst quencher. I love lemonades, be it the simple lemonade/lemon juice or the flavored lemonades. One of my all-time favorite is Mint Lemonade. Today, I’m sharing Basil Ginger Lemonade which is simple to make and mildly flavored. These make a perfect summer drink to beat the scorching heat. I’m sure you will love the flavor and make them often.
