DThe thing is so simple that I seriously wondered if you can / should write about it. But I find basil water so delicious that I just do it had to,
So: If you are looking for a delicious, refreshing alternative drink without alcohol, sugar, flavors, ready-made syrup or other artificial frills, will make here a little joy-hopping. I definitely jumped quite a bit when I tried it for the first time.
Basil water tastes best if it was 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 put each guest's own small bottle decorative with a set meal in the square.
Basil water is great with Asian, Indian, Italian or spicy food, but is also a great companion to cocktails and Knabberkram.
How it works for 1 liter:
1 liter of water Cool in the refrigerator without carbon dioxide, 12 large basil leaves pluck 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 want to use bottles or narrow-mouthed containers, the leaves roll up one at a time like a mini-cigar and thread them through the neck of the bottle. With the help of a chopstick, the leaves can then easily be removed from the empty bottle.
