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).
