Relax with this simple, frozen cocktail from The Longboard at Sullivan’s Island, a restaurant offering healthy eats and creative cocktails in Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina. The drink’s combination of lime juice, basil agave, and more give it a sweet and fruity flavor. Even better, the watermelon slice garnish brings all the elements we love of scarfing down cooling watermelon over the kitchen sink in the peak of summer.
