Honey Simple Syrup
Over medium heat, bring honey, water, and fresh mint to a boil, whisking occasionally. Once the syrup has reached a boil, remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes or so.
With a blender or food processor, puree watermelon and lemon juice together. Strain the mixture through a sieve to remove the pulp (if you do not mind pulp, you can skip this step).Pour the watermelon juice and lemon juice into a large pitcher. Remove mint from simple syrup, and pour the syrup into the pitcher. Add in 3 cups of water (this is to taste, so you can add more/less water until it reaches your desired flavor). Stir the mixture.Refrigerate until ready to serve.Serve with ice, lemon wedges, or fresh mint, if desired.
