I don’t know how you all feel about gin. I think it’s one of those things you have strong feelings about. You know, you either love it or you hate it. Me, well, I’m not a very big fan. But, we ended up with a bottle in our freezer and I obviously couldn’t let it go to waste. So, enter frozen watermelon. AKA: the best thing to put in your next frozen drink.
Watermelon is super sweet, but it’s basically all water, so you can use it in place of both sugar and ice, the dreaded water-downer of all good drinks everywhere. It’s excellent. Plus, it’s pink, which is just plain adorable.
- 1 cup frozen watermelon chunks
- 1 1/2 oz gin
- juice of half a lime
- a few basil leaves
Blend everything together until smooth. Pour into a fancy little glass, garnish with a sprig of basil, and drink it. With your pinky out, of course.
