Nothing says refreshing like a cool glass of lemonade, especially when it's made from scratch. No powders, no frozen gels, just real fruit and a little sugar. And with strawberry season at hand, we recommend that you incorporate those sweet red gems into your lemonade, too.

By adding fresh basil leaves, which are also beginning to make their way into the market, you can take this lemonade from classic to sophisticated. As an added bonus, this drink just gets better as the day goes on as the flavors infuse with one another—that is, if there's any left by the end of the day.
