Summer is just around the corner, and what better way to celebrate the warm weather than with a refreshing cocktail? If you’re looking for a tasty and easy-to-make drink, then the 5-Ingredient Watermelon Rum Punch is the perfect choice.
This cocktail is made with fresh watermelon, rum, lime juice, simple syrup, and sparkling water. It’s a simple recipe that requires only a few ingredients, making it a great option for those who want to whip up a quick and delicious drink.
— Ingredients Needed :
1 large seedless watermelon
750 ml passion fruit rum (1 bottle)
2 1/2 cups orange-pineapple juice
3/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup granulated sugar
— Directions :
Set the flat side of a watermelon on a cutting board. Jiggle the melon to see if it will stay level.
If not, slice a thin layer of rind off the bottom to make a flat surface.
Then cut a large oval opening in the top of the watermelon.
Use a large metal spoon to scoop the flesh out of the watermelon, creating a punch bowl. Set the fruit chunks in a large bowl to collect the juices.
Working in two batches, place half the watermelon flesh into the blender. Add half of the rum, juices and sugar.
Puree until smooth. Pour the punch into the watermelon bowl and repeat with the remaining ingredients.
Chill the punch until ready to serve. (Depending on the size of watermelon you may have extra in the blender pitcher for refilling the punch bowl.)
— Notes and Variations:
- To make the simple syrup, combine equal parts sugar and water in a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool before using.
- If you prefer a sweeter drink, you can adjust the amount of simple syrup to your liking.
- For a non-alcoholic version of this cocktail, simply omit the rum and add more sparkling water or lemon-lime soda.
- You can also experiment with different types of rum or add in other fruits such as strawberries or raspberries.
