2 lb Watermelon; seeds and rind discarded and the flesh chopped
1 tb Fresh lime juice

Transfer the syrup to a bowl and chill it, covered, until it is cold. In a blender puree the watermelon in batches, forcing it as it is pureed through a coarse sieve set over a large bowl, pressing hard on the solids. Stir into the watermelon puree the syrup, the lime juice, and the bitters and transfer the mixture to an 8-inch-square metal pan.
