refreshing WATERMELON BASIL WATER
Refreshing -- this is what I love to guzzle when the weather is hot... and believe me, it has been hot!
WATERMELON BASIL WATER
• 3 cups watermelon cut into tiny cubes
• 12 cups spring water, chilled
• 10-12 basil leaves, julienned
Combine all of the ingredients in a large container and chill 24 hours. If you prefer your drink a bit sweeter, stir in some simple syrup (equal amounts of sugar and water that are brought to a boil in a small saucepan, then cooled -- keep refrigerated).

This looks delicious! I've made watermelon juice a lot, but I always blend it. I love the idea of just letting diced watermelon meld with water and basil over time--it sounds so refreshing and perfect for this hot weather!

Watermelon had been in use for a long time in the Indian household as a great refreshing drink in the summer season. The recipe you had provided here is great and I loved the addition of the basil leaves to the drink.
