DIY Melon Liqueur

Even if you've had bad Midori sours, you shouldn't discount the deliciousness of melon liqueur.

Notes:
Do not use frozen melon for this liqueur; even when it has been properly defrosted it seems to dilute the flavor.
If you would like a less-sweet liqueur, start by using only half the suggested sugar and water. Let the mixture rest a day, then sample and add more simple syrup to taste.
