Blueberry Lemonade With Ginger and Basil. Lemon takes more of a supporting role in this alcohol-optional beverage. The blueberries lend their flavor and stunning color, and the dynamic duo of ginger and basil perk things up. You can make the base a few days in advance if you plan to serve it to a crowd.
Watermelon-Basil Agua Fresca. Here’s what you do with that watermelon you will inevitably impulse-purchase at the farmers market this summer. The drink is fantastic on its own, but spiking it with alcohol adds a whole new dimension.
Summer Fruit Punch (Kompot). Need more ideas for surplus summer fruit? This Russian/Eastern European drink is the place for any and all of it. Make it even more special with vanilla ice cream and/or club soda.
Maple Lemonade. Too many recipes for lemonade? Nope, not possible. Think of maple syrup as your ready-made simple syrup. And it won’t make the drink taste like breakfast, either.
