watermelon basil gimlet

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.
would be great in this, this, or this.

seedless watermelon
8 basil leaves, torn, plus more for garnish
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 ounce vodka
3 ounces seltzer
