Lemon Basil Lemonade  

Grown-up lemonade with a hint of basil, this might just be your new favourite cocktail. It makes wonderful sorbet too.



1 ½ cups vodka

1 ½ cup fresh lemon juice

1 ¼ cups basil sugar syrup

2 cups sparkling water


for the basil sugar syrup:

1 cup sugar

½ cup caster sugar

½ cup packed basil leaves


  1. To make the cocktail, combine all ingredients in a pitcher, stir well, and place in the fridge to chill.
  2. To serve, pour over ice-filled glasses and garnish each with a small sprig of basil.


To make the basil sugar syrup:

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat. When the sugar is dissolved, turn off heat, cover and let infuse for at least 1 hour. Once cooled to room temperature, store in the fridge until ready to use.





1 ½ cups tequila

4 ½ cups pink grapefruit soda

juice of 6 limes + lime wedges to garnish


Note: If you can’t find pink grapefruit soda, Tesco sell a lovely Tesco Pink Grapefruit squash. Dilute this with sparkling water to make your own pink grapefruit soda.
