My new favorite drink for spring and especially summer. Perfect for the beach or pool or backyard or anywhere!
+ watermelon helps you stay hydrated so these are basically healthy, right? no added sugar means they’re low cal as well.
1 oz gin
2 oz lillet blanc
3-4 basil leaves
4 large chunks watermelon
2 cups ice (or more)
Combine everything in a blender and mix until the ice is fully blended.
Freeze your watermelon ahead of time, don't add any ice, blend, then top it off with tonic water.
Add only 1 cup ice, pour over ice and add a splash of tonic.
Use watermelon juice, add ingredients to a shaker, pour over ice with a splash of tonic water.
