Like the flavor; it's quite refreshing because it's not too sweet. the color is a little more muddy than the picture shows, so it's not particularly appetizing to look at, but tastes & smells delicious. We added a little mango rum & it added a perfect amount of sweet, too.

This is a great way to use any leftover purple basil. We enjoyed it the day we made it, but was a bit tart so the rest stayed in our fridge for awhile till we threw it out. Probably better for parties.

It is pretty refreshing. I made a half-recipe and added lemon balm and lemon mint since my kitchen garden needed some pruning back anyway. It's not the transparent pink of the picture but it looks just fine.
