New Favorite Drink



This is my new favorite summer drink - non-alcoholic that is...

  • Handful of fresh basil
  • Sliced lemons
  • Sliced cucumbers

Stick it in the fridge, and drink cold. It is not only refreshing, pretty, but a natural diuretic.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Oh, that sounds refreshing.

I was going to suggest "aqua tappis" with limes and mint. Lemon and Basil. With cucumber. Sounds, ah, er, um, well, . . . "interesting."
Remember, Bear; "Don't bash it until you've tried it."

Hi Nance! Sounds good but one thing I don't need is a diuretic :) To put it another way, when I was PG, I didn't notice the difference in frequency from when I was not. hahaha!

Sounds very refreshing, just the thought of it seems to make me feel cooler. Oh wait, that's because it IS cool where I am (in the PNW). :-)

With summer still hot over here for sure interesting, as both grow in my garden.

Please have a good weekend.

That sounds like a keeper for sure. I think Rob's suggestion of lime and mint sounds like the poor boys' Mojito! ;)
