Cut watermelon into cubes and flash freeze for 30 minutes. Later, add frozen watermelon to an infusion jar or glass vessel and cover with Tito’s Vodka. Let it sit for 4-5 days and strain out the fruit with a cheesecloth to make the infusion. Take 1.75 oz. of watermelon-infused Tito’s and build the rest of the cocktail, in order listed, over ice and stir. Garnish with fresh fruit.
