Gluten-Free Basil Lemonade Cocktail

Gluten-Free Basil Lemonade Cocktail

Summer is quickly approaching and so is the heat, so I wanted to share with you a quick, easy and refreshing summer cocktail using my Cleansing & Calorie-Free Lemonade as the base!

Like I shared in my cleansing lemonade post lemons are an excellent source of Vitamin C, are antibacterial and are full of antioxidants.  When combined with filtered water and stevia, which has been shown to lower blood glucose levels, you create a cleansing, hydrating, cell-feeding and delicious power drink.

Kick it up a little for summer get-togethers or cookouts by adding your favorite gluten-free vodka!

Here’s what you will need :

Half gallon pitcher
Lemon juicer (could be your hand)
Bowl or sink of warm water
Fresh Lemons (number dependent on juice factor, 4-5)
Stevia (amount depends on brand)
Filtered Water
Fresh Basil
Quinoa Vodka or Gluten-Free Vodka of choice (one of the brands I like is pictured below)


Wash lemons in warm water.  This will clean the outside before you cut them as well as help you extract more of the juice.

Juice the lemons (For a half gallon, I might need 4-5 lemons depending on size and amount of juice).

Add Stevia to taste (if using Nu Naturals brand like me, 3 Tsp per half gallon).

Add fresh basil to pitcher OR use as a garnish in each glass served.

Pour one shot of quinoa vodka over ice and fill rest of glass with Basil Lemonade.

If you would like an extra kick of basil use my basil infused ice cubes!
