    I love this simple recipe, I drink these all the time with my mom and aunt. What we have found is that by adding about a tablespoon of cranberry concentrate adds not only beautiful color, but also a mix of fruit flavors. The Lemon juice gets a bit tart for me sometimes, the cranberry is a wonderful after taste.

    I bet this would be good with mint leaves in place of the basil too!
