    Ingredients

    1 cup sugar

    1 cup fresh basil leaves,

    plus 8 sprigs for garnishing

    8 cups lemonade

    Instructions

    In a small saucepan, over medium heat, bring the sugar and 1 1/2 cups cold water to a simmer. Cook, without stirring, until the sugar dissolves and the mixture thickens slightly, about 5 minutes.

    Remove from heat, add the basil, and let cool to room temperature. Strain the syrup into a resealable container and discard the solids.

    Pour 2 to 3 teaspoons of the basil syrup into each of 8 ice-filled glasses, then fill with lemonade. Garnish with an additional sprig of basil. (You can cover and refrigerate the remaining syrup for up to 2 weeks.)
