3 cups lemon juice, freshly squeezed (about 8 lemons, give or take)
1 cup granulated sugar
2 cups strawberries, trimmed and halved
10 mint leaves
8 basil leaves
6 cups cold water
Combine the lemon juice with the sugar in a large pitcher and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Puree the strawberries, mint, and basil in a blender or food processor until smooth, and then add to the lemon juice and sugar in the pitcher. Add the water, stir to combine and either refrigerate until needed or serve over ice right away.
Popping some edible flowers (in this case, pansies) into ice cube trays and creating floral ice cubes is a really easy and pretty way to take drinks and coctails to another level. Perfect for entertaining, you can usually find edible flowers at your local florist, at specialty grocery stores, or via online purchase..
