Aleppo Pepper Basil Lemonade

Now that the 4th of July has passed, summer has truly begun in Seattle. The sun is shining, the BBQ is fired-up, and a wild game of badminton is underway. The players and onlookers are thirsty, and I’ve got just the thing. This refreshing lemonade is perfect for hot summer afternoons like these. The soothing taste of fragrant basil and the zesty flavor of ruby-red Aleppo pepper create a delicious, thirst quenching treat. The simple syrup can be used to make wonderful cocktails as well. Many thanks to our good friend Carol Peterman for sharing her recipe with us.

    I am originally from Seattle and shopped with you for my spices. When I moved I had to do it over the phone, which wasn’t the same as ‘browsing and finding’, which is why I am so excited that you’ve finally got a web site! And the recipes; add a little vodka or tequilla to the Aleppo Pepper Basil Lemonade, (I used fresh squeezed Meyers Lemon juice), and you’re in heaven! Now I don’t have to wait for a visit home, I can shop from my kitchen; Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
