Buy strawberries at their seasonal peak and taste them--if they're very sweet, you may want to adjust the amount of sugar syrup you use to make this limeade.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine first 3 ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, and cool 30 minutes or until room temperature.

Step 2

Strain basil mixture through a sieve into a large pitcher, discarding basil. Place strawberries and lime juice in a blender; process until smooth. Add strawberry mixture to basil mixture. Gently stir in sparkling water. Serve immediately over ice. Garnish with basil leaves, if desired.
