HONEYBEE LEMON, GINGER AND BASIL COOLER
This refreshing drink is a spin on a traditional lemonade cooler. The lemon and ginger is simulating and the basil actually helps to repel mosquitoes. Our Red Bee staff whips this up in a pinch for all of our summer honey tasting events. You may substitute any varietal of honey but we think Linden is best!
Servings: 8-9 Difficulty: Super Easy
2 lemons Fresh ginger finely chopped, to taste 3/4 cup fresh basil leaves, loosely packed 3 tbsp Red Bee linden honey 9 cups boiling water
Wash the lemons and dry them with a soft kitchen towel. Slice both lemons in half and squeeze the juice into a large pitcher, remove any seeds. Add the lemon halves into the pitcher, along with the ginger slices and basil leaves. Pour boiling water into the pitcher and stir in the honey. Allow to steep until cool, and then remove the ginger, basil, and lemon halves. Serve in mason jars with ice.
