Watermelon Refresher

What's summer without a little watermelon. This Watermelon Refresher is the summer cocktail you've been waiting for. Instead of watermelon juice, I made watermelon simple syrup which provides a sweeter watermelon taste. The simple syrup paired with mint, lime, and gin make a refresher you need all summer long.


  • 6-7 mint leaves

  • 2 ounces lime juice

  • 4 ounces watermelon simple syrup

  • 2 ounces gin


  1. In a cocktail shaker, muddle the mint and lime juice.

  2. Add ice, simple syrup, and gin.

  3. Shake and pour into glass.


For watermelon simple syrup, use a blender or food processer to puree 2 cups of watermelon. Combine 2 cups sugar, 2 cups water, and 2 cups watermelon puree in a saucepan. Allow to simmer on low heat and stir until sugar is dissolved for about 10-15 minutes. Strain liquid and allow to cool before using.
