Cucumber-Mint-Basil Syrup

This syrup screams summer, not only because these fresh herbs are abundant then, but it is very refreshing when stirred into a glass of soda water."


2 cups Simple Syrup (Version 2)
1/2 large English cucumber, thinly sliced
1/3 fresh mint leaves (about 25 medium leaves)
1/2 cup fresh basil* leaves (about 25 medium to large leaves)
