Fresh Basil Leaves
Tonic Water or Lemon Lime Soda
Regular quality vodka (could use cucumber flavored if you’d like)
Crush watermelon & muddle with a few basil leaves to release the basil flavor, strain. Mix 1 part watermelon juice with 1 part vodka in a shaker filled with ice. Pour into a martini or cocktail glass and add a splash of tonic water or soda. Garnish with basil & a cucumber slice if desired. *Tip-prepare watermelon juice ahead of time and refrigerate. Use as much or as little watermelon as you’d like and muddle the basil to taste. A few leaves per cup of watermelon should be sufficient.
