Holy moly, it has been HOT! And what better way to cool off and relax than crisp and refreshing strawberry basil watermelon agua fresca!? That is a mouthful, huh! Well, it is totally worth it. Not only is this a totally refreshing, non-alcoholic beverage you can enjoy anytime of day, it would also be pretty incredible with some booze added in if that’s your thing.
I love that watermelon and strawberries are both in season right now and so so vibrant. They are beautiful and delicious, so that’s a win! Check these little gems out. They are just sweet enough to make you smile, and the crisp sparkling water is refreshing. It’s like a paleo friendly soda or mocktail.
Even better, they are ready to be sipped in about 5 minutes or less, depending how quick you can wrangle a big watermelon! All you do is chop up your watermelon, toss it in a blender with some strawberries, basil and lime juice and blend. Fill up your glasses about halfway with sparkling water and then add in the blended mixture, stir and sip!

Place your watermelon, strawberries, basil and juice of half a lime in your blender. Blend on medium-high until everything is mixed up. The watermelon will make it get kind of frothy.

Cut the remaining half of lime into rings and garnish each glass. Give them a little stir and serve! Start sippin'!
