Combine bourbon, watermelon juice and mint simple syrup together and shake or stir well. Pour over crushed iced, top with club soda and serve with extra mint leaves. Garnish with watermelon triangles
fresh watermelon juice
Add the watermelon to a high-powered blender and puree until smooth. Pour through a fine mesh sieve into a large measuring cup to remove any of the pulp.
mint simple syrup
Combine sugar, mint and water together in a small saucepan and heat over high heat until simmering, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to low and cook for another minute or so, then set aside to cool completely. Remove mint before using. You can do this ahead of time and store it in the fridge.
