Watermelon Basil 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.
