A refreshing cocktail made with the sweet juice of ripe watermelon is the perfect way to enjoy a lazy summer day.
In a cocktail shaker combine all ingredients except garnish. Shake for 20-30 seconds. Strain into martini glasses and garish with watermelon wedge.
Bring 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water to a boil in a saucepan. Allow sugar to dissolve and wait for the liquid to turn clear. Turn heat off. Allow to cool and store in refrigerator for up to 4 weeks. This makes about 1 1/2 cups simple syrup.
