Fifty ways to drink your basil
Basil, basil everywhere! I visited a friend yesterday whose garden was full of it. Asked him what he planned to do with it…and he said, of course, “Pesto”!
But there’s only so much pesto a person can make. And since ANOTHER friend is leaving on vacation and offered me access to HIS prolific basil, I decided to poke around and see what I could do that was different.
Specifically, since it’s been sweat weather, what I could do to quench my thirst. It turns out, lots! Here are some of the ideas for basil beverages (alchoholic and not) that I found. I also found some interesting recipes for basil sorbets, granitas, and other cool weather favorites. All of them are on this Pinterest board.
Each of these links will connect you to the original blog where the recipe is found.
