the 4th of july is quickly approaching,
and i like any excuse to celebrate and throw a party.
so naturally, i'm starting to plan my 2nd annual 4th of july bash.
i decided that these frozen watermelon ice cubes are a must.
so cute and practical, right??
i actually wasn't sure about this cocktail at first. basil??
but, it was quite refreshing.
totally a change from the sugary cocktails i'm used to drinking.
and the watermelon ice cubes can go in any cocktail your heart desires.
8 basil leaves, torn, plus more for garnish
