Don’t worry- this recipe is fantastic without the berries as a simple, Honey Lemonade. You can also add any assortment of your own fruit infusions. Blackberries and raspberries are a great alternative. If you want something less sweet, throw some basil leaves in there, thyme, or rosemary for a more herbal taste. Strain out your herbs after 2 hours, or overnight for a stronger flavor. Cucumbers or blood oranges are also yummy infusion options.
