Ingredients
  1. 1 cup sugar
  2. ½ cup brewed white tea (made with 1¼ teaspoons tea leaves and ½ cup water)
  3. ½ cup water
  4. 8 cups (1-inch) watermelon cubes, seeds and rind discarded
  5. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  6. 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  7. ¼ teaspoon salt
  8. Garnish: fresh mint
Instructions
  1. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the sugar, brewed tea, and water. Heat until the sugar is dissolved and syrup is simmering, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and cool completely.
  2. In a food processor, puree the watermelon cubes. Reserve 4 cups of the puree, and discard any remainder, or set aside for another use. Strain the puree through a fine-mesh sieve.
