Basil Hibiscus Lemonade | Fabtastic EatsTo celebrate I made a Basil Hibiscus Lemonade! It’s refreshing, lightly sweetened, fresh and earthy, I loved it so much! If you wanted to, you could always sub out the water for sparkling water to make it even more special, but I loved it as is! It might not be the most beautiful drink, but it sure makes up for it with how tasty it is!!
