Puree remaining watermelon in batches and add it to the container. Taste the fruit in the large container as you add more watermelon and feel free to add more herbs or ginger in the pureeing process if you desire it.

Add the sweet (simple syrup) and the sour (lime juice) components. Adjust amounts to fit your palate. Chill.

When ready to serve, stir in gin and pour over ice. Garnish with lime and mint.
