This cocktail is unlike the girly, slushy drinks you see in bars these days. It’s a grown-up version: not so sweet but really refreshing with herbal notes. Plus, each serving isn’t very strong, so you can enjoy a drink without feeling guilty.
Makes 4 1/2 cups
4 cups watermelon cubes
Juice of 3 limes
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 cup orange liqueur (like Triple Sec)
3/4 cup tequila
2 tbsp chopped basil leaves
Whole basil leaves and lime slices for garnish
Put all ingredients in a blender and process until very smooth.
Pour over ice, garnish with some basil leaves and lime. Serve and enjoy!
