Watermelon Basil Margarita
We're digging this refreshing watermelon spin on the margarita that Hello Fresh created! You can reduce or increase the sugar according to your sweetness preferences.
- 1.5 oz. tequila
- 1 oz. lime juice
- 1 oz. basil simple syrup (instructions below)
- 2 oz. watermelon juice
- Lime wedge, salt, and basil for garnish
Directions: Add tequila, lime juice, basil simple syrup, and watermelon juice in a shaker with ice and mix well. Strain into an ice-filled glass, and garnish with basil and lime. You can also salt the rim if you want. For the basil simple syrup, combine all three ingredients over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Cool and store for up to two weeks in the fridge.
