Need a fun summer drink idea?! 🍉

Take advantage of ripe watermelon and make some delicious and refreshing Watermelon Punch! This easy-to-make drink is perfect for your next summer BBQ or gathering. In addition to being a very affordable beverage to serve (I found a large seedless watermelon for under $5 at Costco!), the punch just looks so pretty and festive in the punch bowl.

Watermelon Punch

Watermelon fans will LOVE this thirst-quenching summer punch idea!

Serves: 10

Prep Time: 15-20 minutes

PT15-20M

Ingredients

  • 14 lb. seedless watermelon
  • 1 and 1/2 cups pineapple juice
  • 1 and 1/2 cups sparkling water
  • melon balls and or mint leaves for garnish (optional)

Directions

  • Step 1:

    Cut about one third of your watermelon off the top, then scoop out all the insides from both sides.

  • Step 2:

    Puree the pieces of watermelon in a blender or food processor and then strain the solid pieces (I strained over a large pitcher). You may have to do this in several batches.

  • Step 3:

    Add pineapple juice and sparkling water to the “bowl” and pour in your strained watermelon juice.

  • Step 4:

    Mix together and chill the punch and bowl in the fridge for about an hour or until ready to serve.

Additional Notes

(Idea adapted from MarthaStewart.com)

We LOVED this fun party drink!🍹

My watermelon actually made more juice than expected so I saved it in a pitcher to make even more punch later. Easily make it an adult beverage by adding rum or even white wine. CHEERS!

✔️HELPFUL READER TIP: “You might think about freezing any “extra” watermelon juice to use as ice instead of ice cubes. That way your punch won’t get watered down with regular ice cubes that melt.”  Hip2Save Reader, Lisa

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your Hip2Save.com account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing Hip2Save.com in classic view.

If you prefer to view Hip2Save.com in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you!
