Watermelon Cucumber Basil Seltzer


  • ½ cup diced watermelon
  • ½ cup diced cucumber
  • 6-8 fresh basil leaves
  • Juice of ½ lime
  • 2 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar or honey
  • 3 cups seltzer water


  1. To make fruit concentrate: place watermelon, cucumber, basil, and lime in a pitcher or large jar and smash with a wooden spoon to release their juices. Stir in water. Let the mixture infuse in the fridge overnight, then strain.
  2. To make simple syrup: combine water and sugar (or honey) in a small saucepan over medium heat. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until completely dissolved. Let cool.
  3. To make soda: for each serving of soda, combine ¼ cup fruit concentrate, 1 tsp. simple syrup and ¾ cup seltzer water in a glass. Serve with ice if desired
