Basil Limeade Slushies

  • TOTAL TIME: 20 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 12
  • FAST

A splash of soda water makes these tart slushies pleasingly bubbly. With a little rum, they'd also make great cocktails.

  1. 8 cups ice
  2. 4 cups water
  3. 3 cups fresh lime juice
  4. 3 cups lightly packed basil leaves, plus basil sprigs, for garnish
  5. 1 1/2 cups sugar
  6. 1 1/2 cups soda water
  1. In a blender, working in batches, blend the ice with the water, lime juice, basil leaves and sugar until slushy. Pour the limeade into chilled glasses. Top with 2 tablespoons of the soda water, garnish with the basil sprigs and serve.
