Basil Hibiscus Lemonade | Fabtastic EatsSURPRISE! Today we’re throwing a virtual baby shower for Liz of The Lemon Bowl! Liz is welcoming her second baby boy so soon and I couldn’t be happier for her! Two boys is an absolute blast! (& handful ;)) but she’s an amazing mom, she’s got this! Liz is one of my favorite bloggers, and just one more reason I love this community so much, she’s a friend! Liz is absolutely hilarious and even though she doesn’t know it, helps keep me conscience of what I’m eating and keeps me motivated to get moving! I love her!

Basil Hibiscus Lemonade | Fabtastic EatsWe’re throwing Liz a lemon themed shower! Fitting, right?! :) There are so many incredible appetizers, mocktails, salads, entrees, and dessert, all including lemon, listed below, and I hope you check them all out! I wish this shower was in person, because you probably wouldn’t be able to pull me away from the food table!!

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!!

Basil Hibiscus Lemonade | Fabtastic EatsCheers and Congratulations to Liz, her husband and her sweet little boy on the new addition to their BEAUTIFUL family! We’re all so happy for you, and I can’t wait to see your new handsome little man!
