On a hot summer day, there’s nothing better than biting into a juicy, sweet watermelon. I wanted to turn that experience into a beverage for our summer barbecues, and so a family friendly recipe for watermelon punch was born. It’s the perfect summer drink, not to mention it would be incredibly simple to prepare in big batches for larger summer gatherings. Count this as my summer drink of choice!
Summertime Watermelon Punch
4 cups watermelon puree (from one seedless watermelon)
1 can or bottle of ginger ale
1/2 can of San Pellegrino Limonata
Juice of 1 large lime
1 tablespoon agave nectar
To puree the watermelon, blend your cut watermelon cubes on very high in your blender. Add watermelon puree, ginger ale, Limonata, lime juice and agave nectar into a large pitcher. Stir well to combine. Serve over ice and garnish with stir sticks threaded with frozen watermelon cubes and mint leaves.
If you’d like, you can easily turn this into a cocktail by adding vodka!
