4 cups seeded and cubed watermelon
2 cups water
1/4 cup sugar
handful fresh basil leaves
Combine sugar, water and basil leaves in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Stir so that the sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and let steep for 10 minutes.
Discard basil leaves and cool completely. Now you have basil flavored simple syrup.
Place the cubed watermelon in a blender and process until smooth. Add the basil syrup and blend until smooth.
Pour over ice and enjoy!
