Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Again, I do not have the time or desire to squeeze 12-15 lemons or more. I use the frozen concentrate and adjust the sugar accordingly.

If the basil is not a fragrant as it should be you can "muddle" the sugar and basil together. (Basically crushing the basil into the sugar) your lemonade may have an off color but it will be very tasty.
