Herbs and Lemons

The ingredients for this sparkling light cocktail:

1 cup lemon juice (from freshly squeezed lemons)
1 large lemon (sliced thin)
2 cups of sparkling water
4 ounces of your favorite vodka
2 tablespoons of mint
2 tablespoons of basil
2 tablespoons of lemon zest
2 thyme sprigs

 

 

1. Wash the mint and basil. Once the leaves are dry, tear them into pieces, and then put all the fresh herbs into a glass pitcher.

 

2. Add your freshly squeezed lemon juice (I use this stainless steel juice press) to the pitcher with the herbs, and toss in the lemon slices.

 

3. Pour in the vodka and stir together gently to combine. Place pitcher in the refrigerator to chill.

 

4. Before you are ready to serve, pour the sparkling water into the pitcher and mix. Pour into glasses filled with ice and enjoy.
