      You can make your own variations to this beverage as well. You could try substituting the basil in the recipe for fresh berries or you could add different types of melon such as honeydew or cantaloupe.

      That sounds absolutely amazing for those hot summer days. Probably one of the healthier drinks you can enjoy too.
