To make basil simple syrup, combine equal parts sugar and water in a small saucepan.
Heat until the sugar dissolves, and then stir in a good handful of basil.
Remove from heat. Let it steep for about 30 minutes, strain and store in the fridge.
Add your basil simple syrup to taste to iced tea, lemonade, even cocktails like mojitos or margaritas!
