Basil is known as Tulsi in Hindi and it’s good for better immunity system. Today I shared Basil Lemonade or Tulsi Lemonade or you can say Tulsi Shikanji in local language of North India. For this recipe, first you have to prepare basil flavored syrup and then served with chilled lemonade.
It’s quite refreshing drink in summer season and easily accompanied with all starter recipes. You can store this syrup in freeze more than one week for further use.
