Fresh Basil Lemonade 
Simple to prepare and a twist on the classic with the addition of basil, perfect for sipping on outside in the warm summer sun. It is one of our summer staples when it comes to drinks. 

Market Salad with Lemon Basil Dressing
We shared this a couple of weeks ago and it is the perfect salad for you to have in your repertoire this summer. You will be able to use up all those goodies from your local farmers market. The Lemon basil dressing will be your new favourite. 

Fresh Pineapple Sorbet 
If you love dole whip then you will loooove this recipe! All you need for this easy frozen treat is fresh pineapple, coconut milk, and agave syrup plus a little time in the freezer. Serve in small cups or even cones on a hot summer day with a fresh wedge of pineapple.

If you’re having some friends over in the evening make up a batch of these refreshing margaritas, the twist is the touch of heat from the jalapeños. Grapefruit and jalapeños are really the perfect match.
