2 ounces Florida gin (such as Old St. Pete Sunset Gin)
1/2 cup fresh Florida watermelon, cubed
1 lime, juiced
3/4 ounce simple syrup
Watermelon, sliced thin and fresh mint for garnish
Chill a coupe glass by filling with ice and water. In a cocktail shaker, add fresh watermelon, lime juice and simple syrup. Using a muddling stick, mash watermelon to release all the juices. Add gin and fill shaker halfway with ice. Place top on shaker and vigorously shake for at least 30 seconds. Discard ice and water out of coupe glass. Use an ice strainer to pour the watermelon gimlet mixture evenly into the chilled coupe glass. Garnish with a thin slice of Florida watermelon. Drink responsibly.
