Strawberry, Watermelon & Basil Gin Slushy

Serves 1

60 ml Hope Gin (works well with all three Hope Gins: use Mediterranean if you want to up the basil notes; and African Botanical if you want to highlight the berries)

5 strawberries

½ cup watermelon

3 basil leaves

1 cup ice

Blend all the ingredients together and pour into a glass. Garnish with edible flowers.
