Watermelon Basil Lemonade , the perfect summer drink

Summer is here!!!! And there is nothing more refreshing than fresh watermelon juice on a hot summer day. I love watermelon and it is one of my favourite summer fruit.
Watermelon Basil Lemonade
 Now watermelon season is everywhere. I often make juice or  lemonade with this. This time i tried to infuse the basil leaves to my regular watermelon lemonade recipe. I simply loved the delicate flavour of basil in the watermelon lemonade. Try this, you will enjoy!!.

Watermelon Basil Lemonade

  • 5 cups of Watermelon,chopped,skin removed
  • Juice from 1 Lemon
  • 5 Basil Leaves
  • 1/2 tsp Black Salt

  1. Place watermelon and basil leaves in a blender and process until smooth.  
  2. Pour the watermelon puree through a sieve to a large bowl, reserving liquid and discard solids.
  3. Combine lemon juice and black salt in an another bowl. 
  4. Then mix with watermelon liquid.
  5. Refrigerate until chill and give it a stir before pouring in glasses.

  • You can substitute sugar instead of black salt.
  • If you don't have basil leaves use Mint leaves instead.
