Summertime Cocktail: Watermelon Margarita with Basil
Basil and juicy watermelon make this Watermelon Margarita a fun summertime cocktail. Herbal and slightly sweet, this margarita is beautiful and delicious!
Ooh Baby! Nothing says summertime better than watermelon. Hot pink, juicy, sweet, fresh goodness. Best thing on a hot day unless…unless, of course we liquor it up!! With as many watermelons as I’ve been buying for end of the year school activities, you would think I had been selling them on the black market or at best had a severe watermelon addiction…but they have been amazingly juicy and crisp and apparently I am overflowing with extra. Hmmm…What to do? Watermelon Basil Margaritas!!!
We have company coming into town for a long weekend, I’ve got watermelon galore, a bountiful pot of fresh basil growing that’s begging me for some useful pruning, and a liquor cabinet with some terrific tequila! Think I’ve got just the right thing for our happy (and a tad thirsty) house guests.
