Watermelon Basil Daiquiri

Watermelon, so sweet and refreshing and so delicious with rum. I've seen variations of this drink for a while now and I'm sure you can replace the rum with vodka (just don't call it a daiquiri!).

This makes enough for 4 drinks
1/4 good sized watermelon cut into cubes and pureed in blender with 16-20 basil leaves. Strain into mixing jug/shaker
8 oz white rum like Bacardi
4 tbsp. fresh lime juice
4 tbsp. simple syrup

Mix them all up (or shake) and pour over lots of ice. If you were making just one at a time - muddle the watermelon and basil in bottom of shaker, add ice and rest of ingredients and then strain before serving.

Serve with a thin slice of frozen watermelon and basil leaf.

This is what summer tastes like.
