Level: Easy

Serves: 6

Ingredients

  • 1-½ cup Sugar
  • 3-½ cups Water, Divided
  • 1 cup Roughly Chopped Fresh Basil
  • 2 cups Peach Vodka
  • 1 cup Fresh Lime Juice (from 8-10 Limes)
  • Ice
  • Lime Wheels And Basil Leaves, For Garnish (optional)

Preparation

First, prepare the basil syrup. You’re basically going to make a really sweet tea. Combine the sugar and 1 1/2 cups water in a saucepan and stir until sugar is dissolved and solution is near boiling. Remove from heat, add basil and let steep for 30-45 minutes. Strain and let cool. (Note: If you want your syrup to last longer than normal, add 1/4 cup regular vodka and store it in the fridge.)

After you prepare the syrup, combine 1 cup of syrup, the remaining 2 cups water and the rest of the ingredients with ice in a pitcher. Garnish with lime wheels and basil leaves as desired.
