Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Make the simple syrup: Heat 1 cup of water in a medium saucepan and add the sugar, whisking until completely dissolved. Remove from heat and add the mint, let stand at least 15 minutes. 
  2. Make the watermelon juice: Add the watermelon cubes to a blender and puree until smooth, a minute or so. Pour through a fine mesh strainer into a large mason jar or pitcher. You’ll be left with a beautiful and bright pink juice!
  3. Make the cocktail: Combine the watermelon juice, 1/4-1/2 cup simple syrup (depending on how ripe your watermelon is), juice from 2 limes, and 4 shots of vodka to a pitcher, stirring well to combine. Chill.
  4. To serve: Add a few ice cubes to a tumbler or stemless wine glass, fill about 3/4 of the way with cocktail, top with mineral water and garnish with additional lime slice and mint.
