Watermelon Cooler

My wife's subway ride brainstorm come to life; this is a great way to finish out the summer.  I have always loved watermelon juice and the addition of ginger, mint and lime take it over the top.  Enjoy!

1 10 lbs watermelon
2 TBSP Ginger syrup (I use Morris Kitchen Ginger Syrup)
1/2 Cup Simple syrup
4 Large Mint leaves
4 TBSP Fresh lime juice

Cut up the watermelon into chunks and discard the rind.  Working in batches put a little of each ingredient into your blender and blend until smooth.  Transfer the liquid to a mixing bowl and repeat with the next batch.  Once everything is blended and together in the mixing bowl, stir to make sure everything is well mixed and transfer to your serving pitchers.  Chill for at least one hour and serve.
