traditionally you "muddle" the mint in the glass w/ice but i don't like having to use my teeth to strain the mint as i drink, so i make a mint syrup. if i had time, i would freeze the watermelon and skip the ice, or do both, but i think you can change it up for how you like a drink: blended or poured over ice.
