    This can be used with good silver tequila to create a memorable watermelon-basil margarita. Just add juice of 1 lime per cocktail. Recipe courtesy of Tillman’s Roadhouse

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine in a stainless steel pot the water and sugar. Zest 4 of the lemons into the water and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer for 5 minutes. Turn off heat and strain the lemon zest out. Add to the ice to chill.
    2. 2
      While water is coming to a boil, squeeze the juice from all 8 lemons in a blender. Add in basil and watermelon. Puree until smooth.
    3. 3
      Once the lemon syrup is cold, combine with the basil-watermelon puree. Stir well and let sit in the cooler for 1 hour before drinking to allow time for the flavors to meld.

      Even though I didn't make the margaritas as suggested, I did put the juice of 1 lime in each serving I handed out. Kind of a lemon-lime watermelon-basil flavor that was very refreshing. Served at my tapas party.
