Basil Kiwi Lemonade
I have been really pumped lately about making new and refreshing lemonades for the family. They are so much fun! I water down a little for Isaak's sippee straw cup and he love it. You can even add tequila or a yummy flavored Vodka to give it a kick for the *grown-ups*.

Basil Kiwi Lemonade Quick-Recipe:
Puree 1 bunch fresh basil and two ripe kiwis (without the skins*duh*) with 1/2 cup filtered water. 
Strain puree and keep some pulp for the lemonade. 
Add juice of six lemons
1 cup honey dissolved in warm filtered water or more to your liking. 
Add more or any element to your liking.

Keep creating and having fun in the kitchen.

Tell me what your favorite specialty lemonade is.

I think I want to try a beet blackberry lemonade next... I'll keep you posted.
