  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice (about 10 lemons, juiced)

  • 10 ripe strawberries, sliced
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil, sliced into ribbons

Chef notes

If you've managed to meet a new friend, it's time to take your friendship to the next level: a friend date. If dinner seems like too much for a casual friend date, do something more laid-back, like brunch. Serve this sweet and easy lemonade to sip while you chat.

Preparation

1.

Combine the lemon juice, sugar, water, strawberries, and basil in a blender.

2.

Puree until smooth.

3.

Stir in vodka, if desired.

4.

Pour over ice and serve.
