Sparkling Strawberry Basil Cooler

Sparkling Strawberry Basil Cooler

Kids and adults alike love this refreshing, sparkling beverage. My family likes to debate if it’s more of a sparkling strawberry lemonade, but because it really keeps us cool on those hot summer days I like to call it a “cooler”!
