Place the watermelon chunks, water and lime juice in a blender. Blend until the mixture is smooth. Strain the watermelon puree into a pitcher. (straining helps to remove any wayward seeds).
Remove about 1/2 cup of the watermelon puree and place it in a measuring cup. Add the mint leaves.
With a wooden spoon "muddle" the juice and the mint leaves together to release flavor. Basically just smash the leaves (or grind them into the bottom of the cup) over and over. Strain the leaves out of the puree when done (optional - I did), and pour the puree back into the pitcher.
Mix the juice well to combine, and serve over crushed ice. Garnish with a mint leaf, if desired.
