2 parts tequila (3 ounces, aka 2 shots)
1 part St-Germain liqueur (1.5 ounces, aka 1 shot)
10 ounces of freshly juiced watermelon
1 tablespoon of agave nectar
4 fresh basil leaves (2 leaves chopped, 2 left whole)
Makes about 16 ounces of Tequilla Sandía (give or take)
Using your juicer, juice 1 half of a watermelon. (You will probably have a lot of juice left over - perfect for later!). Once your watermelon is juiced, measure out 10 ounces of juice in a measuring glass. Fill two glasses about 1/4 high with crushed ice. Take your whole basil leaves and using a spoon or a straw muddle it down into the crushed ice. Fill a cocktail shaker with about a handful or two of ice. Pour in your tequila of choice, St-Germain, 10 ounces of watermelon juice and agave nectar. Shake! Shake! Shake! Pour over crushed ice and garnish with chopped basil leaves.
Happy Fourth of July!
