D The thing is so simple that I seriously wondered if you can write/write about it. But I find basil water so delicious that I just had to have .
So: Those looking for a delicious, refreshing drink alternative with no alcohol, sugar, flavors, done Syrup or other artificial gadgets, will make a little joy hopping here. I definitely jumped quite a bit when I tried it for the first time.
Basil water tastes best when it's allowed to sit in the fridge for half an hour. Served with a few clinking ice cubes, it is then slightly spicy and incredibly fresh.
Serve basil water in colorful glasses (very pretty!) or decoratively serve each guest their own little vial at the place.
Basil water goes great with Asian, Indian Italian or spicy food, but is also a great companion to cocktails and nibbling stuff.
Here's how it works for 1 liter:
Cool 1 liter of water in the fridge without carbon dioxide . Remove 12 large basil leaves from the stems. Bend the leaves 1 - 2 times and pour into the water. Run for about half an hour in the kitchen cabinet. Serve with ice cubes.
Tip: If you're going to use bottles or narrow-mouthed containers, the leaves roll up like a mini cigar and thread she through the bottleneck. With the help of a chopsticks, the leaves can then easily be removed from the empty bottle.
