The weather is so hot lately!
It’s been so hot lately. We drove through parts of central California last week, and it was 115 degrees! Wow! I needed a nice refreshing drink to help keep me cool. Heck, pretty much any hot summer day I want a refreshing beverage to keep me hydrated.
My Basil Lime Sparkling Green Tea is just the thing to refresh and make you happy on a warm summer day. Take it on a picnic. Drink it in your backyard while you sit and enjoy the weather. Drink it at a pool party. Summer doesn’t last very long, so make the most of every day.
Take time to enjoy life
This is something I’m trying to do more of, take time to enjoy life. The little pleasures in life. Hanging out with family, loved ones. Sitting with friends. Chatting. Playing with my cat. Life should be filled with fun. Filled with laughter. Filled with tasty food and drinks.
This Basil Lime Sparkling Green Tea will help you pause and relax, refresh.

Green tea is such a classic part of Asian food, and my basil lime twist makes it fun! Of course, sparkling green tea just makes it perfect! Use any basil you have growing in your garden; I used sweet basil for my basil syrup. Thai basil would be delicious and in keeping with the Asian theme. Lemon basil would also be great, and a nice citrusy kick.
