To make the simple syrup, place the sugar and 1 cup water in a small saucepan set over medium heat. Bring to a simmer and cook until the sugar dissolves, 2 to 3 minutes, then cool.
Pour the simple syrup in the pitcher of a blender with the ice, lemon juice and basil, and puree until smooth. Serve cold.
