Your Weekend Cocktail

Last weekend I picked up my CSA box and it was at least 20 pounds.  I got home and opened it up to find the most giant watermelon I've ever seen.  What do you do with a watermelon the size of a yoga ball?  Make it into a cocktail.

1 oz domaine de canton ginger liqeuer
1/2 oz fresh lime juice
1/2 oz simple syrup, optional (depending on the sweetness of your watermelon)

Combine all ingredients in cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Give it a good shaker, about 10 seconds.
Strain into a glass and garnish with the watermelon slice. Enjoy!
