Watermelon, Vermouth and Vodka Cocktail

"The next sneak peek from @noshotsaftermidnight (a cocktail book I created images for) is this refreshing little number. The book is a compilation of stories from the author's (@drastronaut) experience working in Hospitality, coupled with cocktails created by bartenders he has met along the way. The bartender behind this particular drink is someone who’s gotten me tipsy on numerous occasion…Maria Paterakis (aka @marziepats)!! . The story behind this drink comes from the Author’s experience hiring staff for the first time after opening his bar, ’Dumbo Snackbar.’ I won’t tell you the full story but you can probably tell by the name of this drink…”good help is hard to find.” . Maria’s notes: Use more or less simple syrup depending on the juiciness of the watermelon."
