1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
4 healthy, fresh basil leaves
Heat this on the stove and then cool in the frig.
Pour it into your blender, add:
1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
4 limes chopped in quarters
2 cups cold water
Then pulse your blender on high until the limes are cut up nicely.
Pour the entire mass through a sieve into a container or large-mouth pitcher.
Add another 2 cups of cold water into the blender to swish it out, and pour that water through the sieve also, and mash the pulpy mass of limes with a spoon so you get ALL the flavor from them into your drink.
|If you drink it straight, without the crushed ice,|
it's a wee bit strong.
