Watermelon Mint Lemonade

1.5oz OYO Honey Vanilla Bean Vodka (or OYO Vodka)
.75oz-1oz Simple Syrup to taste (1:1 sugar/water)
.75oz Watermelon Puree
1oz Fresh squeezed Lemon Juice
2oz Chilled Water
Fresh Mint

Muddle (softly press) 5-6 mint leaves is a mixing tin to express the mint oil.  Build remaining ingredients in tin, add ice, and shake hard 3-5 seconds.  Strain over fresh ice in a high-ball glass or ball jar.  Garnish with sprig of fresh mint or wedge of watermelon.

Pro-tip:  This is a great option for large groups.  Instead of using fresh muddled mint, try infusing the mint in the simple syrup.  Bring sugar and water to a simmer until all the sugar is dissolved.  Turn off heat and add fresh mint to hot syrup.  Allow mint to infuse for atleast 20 minutes.. or until the syrup is infused to your level of mint flavor (more flavorful infusions work better with this recipe).

15oz OYO Honey Vanilla Bean Vodka (or OYO Vodka)
7.5oz-1oz Mint Infused Simple Syrup to taste (1:1 sugar/water)

20oz Chilled Water
Fresh Mint for Infusion and Garnish
