Summers in Delhi can be too hot to handle..and its not even raining yet, so it gets pretty unbearable. If you’re a Delhiite you know what I mean and you probably have a refrigerator full of lemons, tang and coconut water to beat the heat too. I keep my refrigerator stocked with plenty of fluids but sometimes a simple lemonade is not enough to quench that thirst, I had no intention of coming up with this brilliant idea but I had a few kiwis lying around that were super ripe and needed to be used asap, so I pureed them and added the puree to my lemonade and It tasted like pure *BLISS*.

Basil is something I added to add a kick to the lemonade, I wanted to use it in my drinks for quite sometime now so I did here..and it tasted spectacular. The flavour wasn’t overpowering and it tasted great against the tanginess of the kiwi and lemons.This Kiwi Basil Lemonade really is perfect for this weather and so easy, you can just make it anytime you want ! As a bonus, this lemonade looks fancy if you’re having guests over, I’m sure they’d appreciate a glass  pitcher full of this stuff. :p
