Watermelon Rum Punch

What’s best about this recipe? You can use the watermelon itself to serve the punch! Easy peasy, and it looks great! Chill the ingredients before pouring into the watermelon for a refreshing, summery cocktail!


Ingredients:

One large watermelon
One bottle (750ml) white or silver rum (we used Bacardi Superior White)
1/4 c. Rosie’s Lime Juice

Other:
Drill
Spigot (we took one off of a water dispenser)

Scoop the fruit out of the watermelon. Blend  until smooth. Pour through a strainer with small holes or a cheese cloth to remove large particles and seeds. Add the entire bottle of rum (or less if you want a less potent drink) and the lime juice and stir. If needed, add a little sugar to taste. Pour into a large bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Use a drill to make a hole about the size of the spigot in the watermelon. Insert spigot in the watermelon, tightening the attachment on the inside of the watermelon.

When you’re ready to serve, put the watermelon on a pedestal (we used the one our water dispenser sits on), fill it with the chilled Watermelon Rum Punch and pour into glasses through the spigot!

Watermelon Daiquiri

 Summer is in full swing and that means watermelon season! If you’re a fan of watermelon, you’ll probably love the taste of this cool rum drink with a touch of sweetness and a little added tartness. Add a little more sugar for a sweeter drink or a little more lime juice to tarten it up! Enjoy the taste of summer!

Watermelon Rum Freeze
(makes 9-10 cups)

3 c. ripe seedless watermelon
1.5 liters lemon lime soda (or diet lemon lime)
6 oz. frozen lemonade concentrate
1/2  750 ml. bottle white rum

Slightly blend watermelon on low in a blender (it’s ok if there are small chunks). In a very large bowl, add all ingredients and stir. Pour into gallon sized zip lock bags – I used two for this recipe (hint: clean out the top part of the blender and set on counter. Put a gallon bag on the inside and pour in mix until 1/2 to 3/4 full, then remove bag and close tightly) Put bags in the freezer for 12-24 hours. Spoon into glasses and garnish with watermelon balls and mint.
