"This very simple refreshing summer cocktail is perfect for the warmer months on the coast, especially around the Fourth of July. You can substitute mint for the basil or add fresh red chili to kick up the heat!" - Karey Butterworth, Owner of Glow in Rockport
2 cups Seedless Watermelon cubed
1 handful (12 leaves) fresh basil
juice of 1 lime
5 oz Silver tequila
2 oz Cointreau
2 small slices of red chile (optional)
Lime slice, sea salt and sugar to rim glass
Place all ingredients in a large glass or cocktail shaker. Muddle well with stem of a wooden spoon until all the pulp of the watermelon has been broken up. Rub a slice of lime over the rim of 2 glasses, then dip rims into a mixture of sea salt and sugar. Add ice to glasses. Pour the mixture through a strainer, pressing the liquid through with the spoon into the two ice-filled glasses. Garnish with fresh basil and a small wedge of watermelon.
