They say 8 cups of water a day does a body good, here's a super tasty recipe to help gulp it down! Throw in some fresh lemon basil (and maybe a splash of vodka!) and you will have no problem getting in your water fix for the day.

Ingredients:
5 cups of cold water
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of fresh lemon juice from 6 lemons
1 bunch of lemon basil
ice

Directions:
Make a simple syrup by combining 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar in a pot and simmer over low flame until the sugar dissolves. Once the sugar has dissolved, remove from heat and let it cool off. Take 12 lemon basil leaves and let them sit in the water while it cools off. Meanwhile, squeeze the lemons until you have 1 cup of fresh lemon juice. Once the sugar water has cooled off, remove the lemon basil leaves and place syrup in a large pitcher. Add the lemon juice, remaining 4 cups of water and ice to the pitcher. Garnish with thinly sliced lemon basil leaves and top each glass off with a lemon wedge if desired.

*Tips&Tricks: If you are serving this for adults, add in some vodka!
