Watermelon Basil Cocktail

Makes 1 drink:
3 basil leaves
juice of half a lemon
1/4 cup of crushed watermelon
1 oz vodka
2 oz tonic water
crushed ice

In a tumbler muddle together the lemon, crushed up watermelon, and basil. Muddling helps to release the basil flavor with out getting tiny pieces of basil in your drinks. I like to muddle the lemon with the basil to blend their flavors really well. Add the vodka and tonic water to the tumbler with a few cubes of ice. Shake the drink well and then strain over crushed iced ice in a glass. Garnish with a small basil leaf.
