Rated 5 out of 5 by Barb2970 from Best lemonade ever!!! Many years ago I had a fresh made lemonade at a carnival and ever since then was never able to come close, until now! The addition of the basil is amazing and it's so fresh and delicious! I use the amount of sugar it asks for but I do add some stevia as well to make it a little sweeter. Best tasting lemonade!! Love it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BlendLikeUMeanit from Really Good! Gave it a bit extra lemon and was still nice. Not too tart and not too sweet. Basil is a nice addition. Easy to make. Definitely will be making again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wanabeorganized from Asking for seconds I asked my grown daughter to make this while I finished the rest of supper. The most trouble she had was picking the basil. She poured small glasses and I didn't realize there was more until she reached for seconds and then all glasses came forth.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JudyJu from Excellent Wonderful fresh taste. I like sweet and sour so I can make it either whichever time I want. It freezes well to make ice cubes for a cool drink without watering it down with just plain old water.
