Drinks

Grilled Basil Lemonade

Fourth of July, a griller's paradise. Though most pitmasters tend to stick to meat, try adding a grilled drink to your celebrations this year.

Grilled Basil Lemonade

While adding grilled elements such as fruit and herbs to your beverages may sound strange, it will actually add a tremendous amount of robust flavor. How? The heat from the grill caramelizes the fruit, creating a delicious combination of smoky and sweet – all in one drink! Plus, what would a Fourth of July BBQ be without a little lemonade? Try serving up this grilled twist on a classic drink, it’s sure to be a hit.

Ingredients

Yields: 6
Cook: mins
Prep: 5 mins

  • 16 lemons, halved
  • 5 cups water, dived
  • 11/2 cup of Basil, chopped
  • 1/2 cup of Honey
  • 1 cup Sugar

Preparation

  • Fill grill with Cowboy Hardwood Lump Charcoal and light.
  • Cut lemons in half — reserve a few slices to use as garnish
  • Place sugar in medium-sized disposable aluminum pan.
  • Dip the lemon halves, cut side down, into the sugar until lightly coated. Set aside.
  • In the same pan, prepare to make simple syrup – mix 2 cups of water, honey and chopped basil with the remaining sugar.
  • Once the coals are ashed over, place aluminum pan onto the grill.
  • Add lemons directly to the grill grates, cut side down.
  • Let the simple syrup mixture simmer on the grill, stirring occasionally to make sure the sugar is dissolved (should take approximately 10 minutes)
  • Grill the lemons until the sugar has caramelized – turning the cut side of the lemon to a golden brown.
  • Take lemons off the grill and let cool.
  • While the lemons are cooling, place a wire mesh strainer over a large pitcher. Strain the basil syrup mixture into a pitcher.
  • Next juice the lemons through the mesh strainer and into the pitcher.
  • Add 3 additional cups of cold water and stir to combine
  • Serve over ice, garnish with remaining basil.
  • For the adults, this lemonade is also fantastic with a splash of bourbon!
