Basil Lemonade

The Ping is not normally a place for recipes, but I just have to share this completely bonkers amazing basil lemonade recipe. Works best if you’ve got a Vitamix or similarly-awesome blending device:


  • 3 cups (720 ml) water
  • 1 1/2 lemons, peeled, halved, seeded
  • 1/4 cup (50 g) sugar or other sweetener
  • 1/2 cup (20 g) fresh basil leaves
  • 1 cup (240 ml) ice cubes


  1. Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure lid.
  2. Select Variable 1.
  3. Turn machine on and slowly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High.
  4. Blend for 1 minute or until desired consistency is reached.

Next time I make it, I’m going to throw in a 1/2 a vanilla bean as well.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
