This summer I’ve been busy with my children creating a new activity everyday for us to work together on. It’s been a great way to connect with them and give them something to look forward to each day. One of our activities was balling up a giant watermelon and creating a punch recipe to enjoy throughout the day. Our Watermelon Punch ended up being refreshing, sweet, and the perfect summer pick me up. Today, I’m sharing our little concoction with you.

Easy summer drink recipe | Watermelon Punch | This is a great drink to make with the kids this summer. Virgin drink recipe, but you could add champagne if you wanted to make an alcohol version.

Watermelon Punch

You’ll start by balling a watermelon. Fill a large punch container about one third of the way with the small bite sized balls.

The first step to making watermelon punch is balling the watermelon. Kids love to help with this.

Next you’ll add a whole bottle of chilled sparkling grape juice, a half bottle of chilled sparkling pink lemonade, and a half bottle of chilled lemon lime pop. Using a wooden spoon, give the punch a stir to incorporate everything.

Add sparkling grape juice, sparkling pink lemonade, and lemon lime pop to your watermelon balls to make this easy Watermelon Punch Recipe. Super easy refreshing summer drink.  Swap the grape juice out with champagne if you want.

Serve with a fun straw because sometimes a stripey straw makes punch even more fun to drink. Keep a big spoon nearby to spoon in some watermelon from the top of the punch.

This punch would make a great party drink. You could even make an adult version by dubbing out the sparkling grape juice for good ol’ champs! Brunch cocktail, anyone?!
