Watermelon Gin and Tonic

Watermelon Syrup:
4 oz. watermelon, cubed
1/2 cup sugar
Pinch of salt

Gin & Tonic:
3 tablespoons watermelon syrup
3 ounces of gin 
4 ounces of tonic
Watermelon balls for garnish
Lime for garnish

In a blender, add the watermelon and sugar and pulse until smooth.  Line a sieve with cheesecloth and strain watermelon mixture.  (Note: If you don't have cheesecloth, I'd recommend running it through the sieve twice. Should work close to the same.) Transfer to fridge to chill. 

In a glass, add the watermelon syrup first, then the gin, then the tonic. Stir. Garnish with watermelon balls and lime.
