1Puree watermelon in a food processor. Put melon, simple syrup, and lemon juice in a baking pan such as a 9 x 13-inch pan.
2Stir well and freeze about 4 hours until frozen solid.
3To serve, scrape up granita with a spoon or fork into goblets or clear, cut-glass dishes.
4Garnish with mint sprigs. Buon Appetito!
Because granitas are course they are less in need of an ice maker than sorbets are. A baking pan works just fine.
