An incredibly refreshing summer beverage made with cucumber, lime juice, and Thai basil-infused simple syrup.
  • ½ to 1 cup evaporated cane juice
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 sprig Thai basil
  • 1 large cucumber, peeled and chopped
  • ½ cup fresh squeezed lime juice
  • 6 cups crushed ice
  • extra slices of lime and cucumber, for garnish
  • extra Thai basil, for garnish
  1. Combine cane juice and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Turn off heat and add the Thai basil. Let stand until completely cooled.
  2. Remove the basil from the syrup. Pour the syrup into a blender and add the remaining ingredients. (If your blender is too small, do this in two batches.)
  3. Pour into a pitcher, if desired, and serve.
