richberry Watermelon Basil Lemonade

Try this summer drink with richberry, instead of sugar to taste. Experience the taste twist from sour to sweet without adding artificial sweeteners or sugar.

Ingredients: For the Basil Syrup: 3/4 cup water

1/3 cup packed roughly chopped fresh basil leaves

For the Lemonade:

  • 3 cups water

  • 1-1/2 cups chopped watermelon

  • 1-1/2 cups fresh lemon juice


  1. Make the Basil Simple Syrup: In small saucepot, stir together water and basil. Cook over medium heat 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand 10 minutes. Strain through a fine mesh strainer; discard basil. Transfer to jar or container and refrigerate 4 hours or up to 5 days.

  2. Make the Lemonade: In blender, puree water and watermelon until smooth. Strain through a fine mesh strainer; discard solids.

  3. Pour watermelon liquid into pitcher; add lemon juice and Basil Syrup. Stir until well combined. Serve over ice immediately.

Mocktail (non-alcoholic): If you wish to have a delicious non-alcoholic version, please feel free to take the alcohol out and follow the same procedure.

Consume Miracle Berry: Just before digging in, chew 1 or more freeze-dried miracle berry (this can also be done during the preparation of ingredients). Ensure to remove pits to avoid a bitter taste.

Fact: The active ingredient miraculin from miracle berry will turn sour foods such as lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, non-fat yoghurt and other citrus food to taste sweet without adding sugar. We recommend two halves or 2 servings for maximum effectiveness. Make sure to follow instructions from the back of the packaging.

Warning: Alcohols are for over 21 years of age and above. Drink responsibly, do not drink and drive.
