Watermelon Rum Punch

With summer in full effect, our backyard bbq’s aren’t complete without a refreshing cocktail!!

Loaded with fresh fruit, this cocktail is light, sweet and citrusy. It’s honestly perfect to sip on during the 100 plus degree weather we’ve been having lately!

I made these last week for a bbq at my sister and brother in law’s new home! Lucky for me, my SIL busted out her camera and snapped a few shots while I was throwing this together!

- 10 cups of watermelon cubed
- 2 cups white rum
- 1 cup cranberry juice
- Juice of 4-5 limes
- Blueberries for garnish
- Ice


Cube the watermelon and pulse in a blender. Take the purée and run through a strainer over a pitcher. Use a meddler or a spoon to push down the purée through the strainer to get the juices to flow down through the strainer.

Stir in the rum, cranberry juice, fresh lime juice, and blueberries. Blueberries act as a decoration so fruit to flow in each cup you serve. Serve over ice and enjoy.
