  • Print
Thai Basil


  • 2 organic lemons
  • 2 organic Meyer lemons
  • 1 organic orange
  • 6 cups filtered water, divided
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 5-6 sprigs sweet Thai basil


  1. Begin by quartering the lemons and orange. Place into a blender followed by 3 cups of water, the sugar and basil. Starting the blender on low, mix all of the ingredients together until the fruit has broken down and resembles a chunky, pulpy paste.

  2. Next, in a large bowl fitted with a fine mesh strainer pour the pulpy mixture through using a flat spatula to help push all of the liquid through.

  3. Discard the pulp, you can use it to clean your garbage disposal.

  4. Add the remaining 3 cups of water to the mixture. Stir and taste. Add more sugar if you like it sweeter. Chill and serve over ice.
