Strain out solids and reserve the syrup. Discard watermelon chunks or use for something else. Add a 1/2 cup of vinegar to every up if syrup. Let sit in refrigerator for 1-3 days. (The longer it sits the mellower it gets.)

INSPIRATION:

VEEV is a fairly new product for me, and when I finally had a chance to try it I was immediately inspired to play with it. It was by chance that one day I was given a watermelon. I was enjoying the melon while sipping on VeeV and waiting for ideas. Oh, how the flavors meshed! But, I wanted more, something different, tropical. That when I thought, why not? Let’s get frozen! My first try was too sweet, it needed a little bite, and that’s when I decided to make a shrub.
