Basil Simple Syrup – Insanely Delicious

Basil Simple Syrup

My basil always pulls double duty. Before I make my Basil Pesto I blanch my basil. I do this for a couple of reasons. One it’s an easy way to brighten the leaves especially if they have sat on your counter for a day or so. It also helps if your basil has lightened due to overwatering. I use the infused water to make basil simple syrup for cocktails such as Basil Mojito and Basil Mules
