Best summer drink EVER! ever.
Ball or cube a watermelon into the blender (about 2-3 cups worth). Blend. Strain.
Make a simple syrup (1/4 Cup of sugar, 1/4 Cup water – heat on low/medium in pot on stove until liquid is clear).
Add simple syrup to watermelon juice to taste (some watermelons are sweeter than others).
Take fresh basil leaves and pound with ice in a glass (like you would start a mojito).
Pour sweetened watermelon juice over basil and ice. Enjoy.
MORE Summer Goodness! Longview visit!
This is what 30 pounds of blueberries looks like. Fresh picked near Longview, TX! Oh, I have plans, baby! Like my very favorite blueberry cobbler! Recipe to be posted later.
And this is what Gus looks like exhausted from his Longview visit, resting his head on the ice chest filled with 30 pounds of blueberries.
I love summer goodness!
