BANANA FLAVORED THAI BASIL SEED
2 tablespoons Thai basil seed
1/2 lemon , freshly squeezed
2 tablespoons honey
1 quarts water
1/4 cup superfine sugar, to taste
1 teaspoons banana extract ( Opcional : can add cherry extract, rose water, orange blossom water or simply vanilla extract.)
1 cups ice cubes, or more
Wash the Thai basil seeds and place the Thai basil seeds in a pitcher.
Bring 1 cups of water to a near boil. Pour into the pitcher. Let the seeds gain in volume, about 5 minutes.
In one saucepan, dissolve the sugar with 1/2 cup of water.
Bring to a near boil and add the honey. Pour the syrup into the pitcher.
Add the banana extract, the rest of the cold water and lots of ice cubes.
I served this chilled with some fresh Thai baby basil leaves
