Watermelon Swash

Watermelon Swash

In honor of National Watermelon Day, swirl up a watermelon swash from elixir extraordinaire (and one of my favorite bloggers), Mrs. Lilien. If watermelons just aren't your thing, Mrs. Lilien's Cocktail Swatchbook offers  a list of other lively libations. Your cocktail cabinet and closest friends will thank you.

{step by step}
Blend 4 cups of cubed watermelon & strain to make 1 1/2 cups of fresh juice.

Blend watermelon juice, the juice of 4 limes, 1 cup of tequila, 5 basil leaves & 1/2 a cup of simple syrup for 30 seconds.

Add 3 cups of ice and puree until smooth.

Pour, serve & enjoy.
