Yesterday's post may have seemed complex, but this morning I made a very simple, but very delicious recipe with only 3 ingredients - lemon-basil, watermelon, and ice (does that count as an ingredient?). This drink is so refreshing! You may not have access to lemon-basil, in which case you can substitute regular basil, which still complements the watermelon well, but if you can find it, the lemon-basil adds an amazing citrusy tang that pairs with the watermelon so nicely.
Lemon-basil and Watermelon Frosty
Watermelon - about 1-inch round of a large melon
Lemon-basil - about 1 small handful
Ice - anywhere from a few cubes to a few cups, depending on how cold and slushy you want it.
Blend ingredients together until ice is crushed finely. Pour into glasses and serve.
Makes 3-4 small servings (as shown in the picture) or a couple larger glasses.
In other news, my friends and I just got back from playing the Real Escape Game in Toronto! We were locked in a room and needed to find objects and solve puzzles to try to escape. We didn't successfully make it out within the hour, but we had a lot of fun!
