Mock Strawberry Peach Sangria
Strawberries and peaches make an excellent flavor combination for a colorful summertime drink.

1 cup strawberries, sliced
1 lemon, sliced
1 cup fresh basil leaves, divided, plus more for garnish
3 1/2 cups chilled ginger ale or lemon-lime soda
Combine peaches, peach syrup, strawberries, lemon and ½ cup basil in a large pitcher.
Stir gently and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
