The instruction how to make Watermelon Mockjito

  1. For watermelon simple syrup, put sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring often, to dissolve sugar. Set pan in a bowl of ice water and stir occasionally until syrup is cool, about 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cut watermelon in half and reserve half for other uses. From the remaining watermelon, cut 1 cup of medium watermelon chunks and set aside. Dice 1 cup watermelon and set aside. Cut the rest of the watermelon into large chunks (about 4 cups). Puree the large chunks in a blender, then pour and rub the watermelon juice through a fine strainer. Youu2019ll have about 1 u00bd cups watermelon juice.
  3. Pour cool syrup into a blender and add diced watermelon and 2 tablespoons lime juice. Whirl until very smooth, about 2 minutes; strain. Youu2019ll have about 1 u00bd cups watermelon simple syrup.
  4. To make the mockjito, in a cocktail shaker, muddle the medium chunks of watermelon with mint leaves to release the juice and oils. (If you donu2019t have a muddler, stir vigorously with a wooden spoon, breaking up watermelon and mint.) Add 2 ounces (u00bc cup) watermelon syrup, 2 ounces (u00bc cup) watermelon juice, the remaining 2 ounces (u00bc cup) lime juice, and a handful of ice cubes. Shake vigorously until cold, then pour into 2 glasses.
  5. Top drinks with sparkling water. Add a lime slice, mint sprig, and watermelon wedge to each. Leftover watermelon juice and watermelon simple syrup keep, chilled, up to 1 week; stir before using.
