A small group of friends and I met at one of our favorite Tea Cafe's a few weeks ago to enjoy lunch, desserts, and tea.
It's a darling Cafe and Bakery that's set up in a floral and gift shop. They serve the most delicious food and desserts!
Our server brought us tall glasses of water before she took our order.
It wasn't until I/we sipped on the water that we all ooh-ed and aah-ed. The water was amazing!
I could taste a hint of basil, and my friends could taste a hint of something sweet. Whatever it was, it was so good! You see, there was nothing in the glasses but water and ice . . . so we were all wondering what made the water taste so good.
I had to ask . . . So what's in the water!?!
Our server shared that it was infused with strawberries and basil. Ahhhh!
Poor thing . . . I must have asked her 20 questions about it, as I knew that it was something that I had to re-create at home for family and friends.
I even asked our server how many strawberries and basil leaves she adds to each pitcher of water, so that I could re-create the perfect ratio . . . 2-3 sliced strawberries and 2 basil leaves.
I feel a little silly sharing something so simple, but it's too good not to share!
I always have strawberries, but now I keep basil, too. I make a big pitcher every morning, and enjoy it throughout the day.
It's the perfect Summer drink to share with friends and family when they come by for a visit!
