This delicious beverage is ideal for a warm, sunny day, whether you’re sitting by the pool or out on your porch. The watermelon is cool and refreshing and the lime and basil complement the sweet fruit perfectly. Plus, it looks fancy enough to serve guests if you’re having a get together. If you make it ahead of time, stash it in the fridge and give it a good stir to combine all of the ingredients before serving.
