Basil is always growing at my house, and I haven’t experimented with it beyond Italian dishes.

It was light with a tiny bit of sweetness and not too much bitterness.

I’m growing lavender this year and I think lavender and lemon will make a perfect combination, too. Take a look at your garden and see what you can come up with!
Steep, sip, and enjoy.
