Watermelon juice is made by puréeing chunks of peeled, seedless watermelon in a blender and pouring it through a fine sieve. Simple syrup is made by combining equal parts boiling water and sugar, and stirring until dissolved. Make this cocktail as an individual drink, or use the quantities in brackets and stir together with ice to make a full pitcher.
