you can make the puree in the blender with ice or make the mix of melon, alcohol, syrup and pour it over ice. i prefer the second option, but either way is fantastic. i took away the step of "muddling" the mint in the glass b/c i don't like having the mint in my glass but you can garnish with lime.
