Alex, the owner & force behind Pitaiyo offered Fredericksburg Foodie fans a few of her favorite recipes, this Watermelon Cooler is a healthy way to enjoy a mocktail or cocktail. Alex notes that watermelon has an enzyme that helps rebuild muscle, making this a great choice!

Watermelon Cooler

1/2 a seedless watermelon
Handful of fresh basil
Juice of 2 limes
Club Soda, Tonic Water, Vodka or Prosecco - Your Choice!

Remove the flesh of the watermelon and place into blender. Add a handful of fresh basil and the juice of two limes. Blend, strain and pour a small amount into each glass, topping with the liquid of your choice. Enjoy!
