This is a perfect cocktail on a warm, summer day!

Make it your own by choosing your own liquor- vodka, rum, and tequila would all work nicely. Not a fan of basil? Swap in mint!

Ingredients:
4 cups Seedless Watermelon Chunks
2 tbsp Lime Juice
Optional: Powdered sugar to taste
Fresh Basil (or Mint)
3/4 Cup Vodka (Or Tequila or Rum)
Directions:
  1. Blend watermelon and lime juice until smooth. Add powdered sugar and blend to sweeten to taste. We find little to no sugar is needed with Leger’s naturally sweet watermelons.
  2. Stir in vodka (or your preferred liquor)
  3. Take 2-4 Basil leaves, roll leaves and thinly slice into a chiffonade.
  4. Fill 4 old fashioned glasses with ice. Pour watermelon/vodka mix over ice. Sprinkle basil chiffonade over glasses.
  5. Garnish with watermelon slices and/or basil leaves.
  6. Enjoy!
