Watermelon Basil Refreshers

I know most people are back in school but to me it still feels like summer. It's warm outside and summer garden veggies and fruits are at their peak right now.

Every summer, I basically have two recipes that I make all the time. One is one pot pasta (I modify this recipe right here) and the other is watermelon basil water.

This recipe is super easy to make and is so so tasty. And if you are wondering if basil in watermelon sounds odd, just trust me and give it a try. It's so good!


-1 watermelon (either a large one or a mini one will do. I would do a mini one for your first batch. Plus, I think those have a stronger flavor than the large ones)
-1 to 2 cups of loose basil
-1 c. water


-Chop the watermelon into pieces and place in blender with 1/2 c. water and blend until smooth
-Strain the watermelon
-Place basil into the juice and put in refrigerator for 8-10 hours before drinking

What's your favorite drink during the summer time?

    P.S. that drink looks tasty; my drinks are usually just poured directly out of the container :D
