Watermelon Rum Punch Recipe

(By Ashlie Hughes) If you are looking for a unique summer drink to serve at your next outdoor feast, then look no further–watermelon punch, with or without rum, is a perfect addition to any party.

When I first saw the recipe in the cookbook "1,000 Mexican Recipes" by Marge Poore, I couldn't wait to try it. Made with fresh fruit juices and served from a hollowed-out watermelon, could it get any better? Not only is the concoction refreshing, but the presentation itself is quite charming.

Watermelon Rum Punch (adapted from "1,000 Mexican Recipes")


•1 watermelon
•1/2 cup simple syrup (or agave nectar)
•2 cups pineapple juice
•1 cup fresh orange juice
•1/2 cup fresh lime juice (I prefer using key limes)
•1 1/2 cups rum, or more!
