Summer is here!!!! And there is nothing more refreshing than fresh watermelon juice on a hot summer day. I love watermelon and it is one of my favourite summer fruit.

 Now watermelon season is everywhere. I often make juice or  lemonade with this. This time i tried to infuse the basil leaves to my regular watermelon lemonade recipe. I simply loved the delicate flavour of basil in the watermelon lemonade. Try this, you will enjoy!!.
