Finding a refreshing drink for these upcoming warm months is always a nice thing to add to our on-going menu. This Strawberry Basil Lemonade Punch is an HML Favorite that will make all your guests come back wanting more.


  • 10 lemons, juiced, about 1 cup of fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup sugar ( the finer the better)
  • 4 1/2 cups water
  • 10-12 strawberries, Cut off tops
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil
  • 1/2 cup tequila or vodka (optional)



  1. Take the lemons, juice them and transfer into a blender.(*If rushed for time, buy a premade Lemonade or Frozen lemonade)***.   If using Frozen Lemonade let sit for about 10-20 minutes at room temperature & you will not need any ice to serve.( More of a slushy; just as tasty).
  2. Then add the sugar and  water, using the blending on a low setting to combine and dissolve the sugar.
  3. Add the strawberries and basil.
  4. Blend the mixture for about 20 seconds just until the mixture turns pink and the basil is finely chopped.
  5. Pour into the desired pitcher or serving container; Garnish with fresh strawberries & basil.
  6. Add alcohol if desired. Serve over crushed ice and enjoy!
