Spiked Basil Vodka Lemonade

May is such a busy month in our house- I heard someone on Instagram refer to it as Maycember and I couldn’t relate to that more! It is feeling just as crazy as December!

With spring and summer entertaining on the horizon, I wanted to share some fun cocktail recipes (did you see my easy Spicy Paloma recipe?).  I really love basil infused cocktails when out to dinner so thought I’d try my own- it is actually very easy to infuse your own vodka! You just need to add basil to soak in your favorite vodka for at least 6 hours (I did mine overnight) and you will have all the flavors of basil for your cocktail!

Here’s everything you need to make four of these basil infused cocktails, multiple accordingly if you are making a batch!

You’ll Need:

Makes Four Cocktails

  • 25 large basil leaves
  • 8 ounces of your favorite vodka
  • 2 cups lemonade
  • Club soda to top
  • Lemon slices and additional basil for garnish

To Make:

To infuse your vodka, place basil leaves in a jar or jigger and pour vodka over top. Allow to infuse for at least 6 hours to overnight.

When ready to prepare your cocktail, drain out the basil leaves.

Combine vodka and lemonade.

Top with club soda.

Garnish with lemon slices and basil.

Cheers to your Spiked Basil Lemonade!

xoxo, Jenna
