Cook's Notes:

You'll need approximately 1 cup lemon juice. Add 1/2 cup vodka if desired.

Although superfine sugar is the best choice for mixed drinks, granulated sugar works fine too.

If you don't like chunks of strawberries in your drink, you can puree the strawberries and basil prior to mixing with lemonade.
