1 bunch fresh basil, washed and stemmed
2 cups sugar
1 cup water
2 cups lemon juice, from about 12 to 15 lemons
2 cups cold sparkling water
To make the syrup, combine the basil, sugar and 1 cup water in a saucepan. Simmer and stir over medium heat until the sugar is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Cool and strain. Set aside or store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Mix the lemon juice, the basil syrup and sparkling water together in a pitcher. Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Pour over glasses filled with ice.

What a perfect lazy Summer day activity to make with your favourite fruit juice! If you don't have a candy thermometer, just keep a glass of cold water handy and when a drop of the candy liquid sets in the water, you're ready to go.
