We’ve got your mid-summer drink: watermelon with basil and lime

by The 100 Companies

Watermelon juice with basil and lime (from NYT Cooking).

Ingredients:

• 1 small, cold watermelon, seeded and  roughly chopped into 2-inch pieces

• 4 to 6 basil leaves  Juice of ½ lime (Optional) alcohol of your choice to make a cocktail (we suggest light rum or tequila). 

Preparation:

Fill a blender halfway full with watermelon chunks, add the basil and lime juice then pulse on low until the ingredients are mostly incorporated. (Now add your choice of alcohol to make a cocktail, or leave it out for a refreshing and healthy “mocktail”). Blend on high for 10 to 15 seconds and serve immediately.
