Take advantage of ripe watermelon this summer and make some delicious and refreshing Watermelon Punch! This easy-to-make drink is perfect for your Labor Day BBQ. In addition to being a very affordable beverage to serve, the punch just looks so pretty in the punch bowl.
14 lb. seedless watermelon
1 and 1/2 cups pineapple juice
1 and 1/2 cups sparkling water
melon balls and or mint leaves for garnish (optional)
- Cut about one third of your watermelon off the top and scoop out all the insides.
- Puree the pieces of watermelon in a blender or food processor and then strain the solid pieces. You’ll have to do this in several batches.
- Add pineapple juice and sparkling water to the “bowl” and pour in your strained watermelon juice.
- Mix together and chill the punch and bowl in the fridge for about an hour or until ready to serve.
