DIRECTIONS

  • Combine half each of watermelon, mint, juice, and cucumber in a blender or food processor; process until smooth.
  • Line a fine sieve with 4 layers of cheesecloth, allowing cheesecloth to extend over edges; strain watermelon mixture through prepared sieve over a bowl, reserving juice mixture.
  • Gather the edges of the cheesecloth together. Holding cheesecloth over sieve, squeeze to release the remaining juice mixture.
  • Discard solids. Repeat the procedure with the remaining watermelon, mint, juice, and cucumber.
  • Combine 2 1/2 cups juice mixture, tonic water, and gin, stirring well to combine. (Reserve any remaining juice mixture for another use.) Serve over ice.
