The vibrant blue-violet color of this refreshing summer sipper is naturally stunning. And the perfect addition to any poolside chill session. Requiring only 4 ingredients (plus water) this limeade is as simple to make as it is beautiful—not to mention, delicious. The tart lime juice is sweetly balanced by juicy blueberries, and fresh basil delivers a refreshing herbaceousness. The addition of the basil just amps up the sophistication of what is normally a down to earth drink.
1 cup fresh lime juice (about 7-8 medium limes)
1 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup loosely packed basil leaves
1 cup granulated sugar
3 cups water
How to Make It
Combine lime juice, blueberries, basil, and sugar in a high-powered blender; blend until smooth. Strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a large pitcher; discard solids. Stir in the water and serve over ice.
