Do you use bottled lemon juice, or real lemons? Can't imagine how many lemons I'll need! ??

This was a great way to use up some cucumber. It's not overly sweet, though still has the thick feel lemonade always has. Will definitely make again.

Very Refreshing! I used half the sugar and it was perfect. Will make again!

Very pleasant. Dropped the basil. Added mint instead. Very refreshing

An innovative and refreshing way to go with lemonade.

Very refreshing. Loved the basil/cucumber combination. Had this at a café and was hoping there was a recipe on this site for it. Thank you for sharing.
