A refreshing drink on a hot day. If you like a less sweet beverage, this is great on its own. But for a hint more oomph, I also add mint simple syrup to taste. This only takes a few minutes to make and adds another dimension.

Author's Notes

If your party is strictly grown-ups, I’ll look the other way if you want to tip some rum or tequila into the mix.

Directions

Step 1
In a small saucepan over medium high heat, combine Granulated Sugar (1/2 cup) , Water (1/2 cup) , and the Fresh Mint Leaves (1/2 cup) stirring occasionally until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat. Let steep for 10 minutes. Strain mint leaves from syrup. Discard.
Step 2
Add the Seedless Watermelon (4 cups) to the blender, and puree until very smooth. Place a fine mesh sieve over a small bowl or 4 cup measure. Strain pulp from juice through the sieve, pressing on the solids with the back of a spoon. Discard the solids.
Step 3
Chill juice, simple syrup, and Club Soda (to taste) at least 4 hours, until very cold.
Step 4
For individual drinks, mix 3/4 cup watermelon juice with 1-2 tablespoons simple syrup. Add 1/4 to 1/2 cup club soda (to taste) and a squeeze of Lime (1) .
