I had to share this super easy spiked recipe.. I’m making it with dinner tonight after a long day of fun in the garden. It’s a super basil FEST at my home and garden with all the new varieties I’m growing this year in the raised beds. A few of the fun new varieties I’m growing include Boom-Boom Mounding Basil by HGTV home plants and a super new basil from Burpee Home Garden – so new I forgot the name! Looking for some fun and easy veggies to grow in your home garden this year? Check out some of my favorites on 7 Easy Vegetables to Grow. Many of these veggies I shared I’ve planted again this year in the raised bed or garden. Enjoy the drink recipe with which ever basil you decide to use in this spiked treat.
