Herbal Elixir

This cheery drink is an ode to summer’s most beloved ingredients, from cucumber to pineapple to fresh basil.
I recommend making it seasonally, when your herbs and fruits are at the peak of freshness. Basil contains tons of flavonoids that can help to protect your skin against aging and UV damage.
