Refreshing Watermelon Fresca

I absolutely love watermelon in the summer months.  Cool, refreshing and it is loaded with antioxidants. One of my favorite ways to get more melon is making a Watermelon Fresca or spritzer.


4 cups cubed watermelon
3 cups water, divided use
½ cup fresh basil leaves
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
1 Tbsp. honey
1 dash sea salt (or Himalayan salt)

1. Place watermelon, 1 cup water, basil, lime juice, honey, and salt in
blender; cover. Blend until smooth.
2. Strain watermelon mixture through cheesecloth (or a fine mesh strainer).
Discard solids.
3. Add remaining 2 cups water to watermelon mixture; mix well.
4. Serve over ice.

For a spritzer, you can add a touch of seltzer water or if you want to be the total party, add in your favorite champagne!
