Not only pesto.
Basil can be used for a variety of foods, preserves, and remedies.
Liquore al basilico for example, delicious and perfect after dinner.
Apparently basil is used for a variety of cocktails
including a super-italian version of Mohjito called Basito
and what about a fantastic sorbetto al basilico? So refreshing!
