Watermelon Punch Recipe


Watermelon Punch Hip2Save

Take advantage of ripe watermelon this summer 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 in the punch bowl.

Watermelon Punch Recipe

(Adapted from MarthaStewart.com)


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)

Use a Watermelon for a Punch Bowl Hip2SaveDirections: Cut about one third of your watermelon off the top and scoop out all the insides. Puree the pieces of watermelon in a blender or food processor and then strain the solid pieces (I strained over a large pitcher). You’ll have to do this in several batches. Add pineapple juice and sparkling water to the “bowl” and pour in your strained watermelon juice. Mix together and chill the punch and bowl in the fridge for about an hour or until ready to serve.

Punch in a Watermelon Hip2Save
My watermelon actually made more juice than expected so I saved it in a pitcher so I could make even more punch. My family loved this fun party drink. Make it an adult beverage by adding rum or even white wine. Enjoy 🙂

    Lets say I want to make this for my house and not a party. How long can this last? 2-3 days??? Thanks in advance! Love these recipes!

    • khartell1229

      It probably will stay safe to drink for 2 or 3 days if you keep it in a covered pitcher instead of the watermelon rind. It will also be a little flat.

      But I have a feeling that it will be gone long before you have to worry about it going bad 😀

      • CW

        Yeah that’s what I’m thinking but there are only 2 of us. I’m wondering if i can just puree, cut the recipe in half, and put half aside in the fridge, Then add the liquids the next day. I just don’t see us both drinking an entire watermelon full….oh wait but we have tons of toilet paper from Collin’s awesome deals…. lol….!

    Can any of you hipsters let me know whether or when Blendtec blenders come on sale???
    Im moving into my new house and this is one appliance i have been lusting after since ages…is the amazon price the best or are there better deals out there?

    • Kimberly

      Other than the occasional “deal” that comes around once in a blue moon, I think Costco has the best price.

    • Anna

      I love my Ninja, and you can often get it for under $100. I had another brand that I got for about $250 or so and was not happy, should have gotten the Ninja right away.

      • Kay

        I picked up a Ninja set (pitcher and small size for salsa) for $32 at Walmart awhile back. I would check there periodically for clearance items.

    Love! Perfect for my watermelon obsessed sister for her bridal shower 🙂

    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.

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Good idea!

  7. Becky D

    Add some rum and you really have drink.

  8. bldandrea

    Add some rum and now your are talking.

    • Kidsallgone

      Haha! Funny y’all made the same comment at the same time lol!! And I agree with both of you!

  9. Jennifer

    Oh yum, can’t wait to try. Thanks Lina!

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      You’re welcome enjoy!

    Any tips on picking a good watermelon in the store?

    • dana

      I have tapped, thumped, smelled, looked for a yellow underbelly, shaken, and stopped everyone that walks by me in the produce section— both employees and customers! Gotten a dud every time!! So, I now go to the fruit stand up the street and make the little old man pick me out one. He knows if I get it home and it is not a good one I will haunt him in his sleep!! Just kidding!!!

  11. Cassandane

    I keep seeing this watermelon punch made, then served in the rind via a spigot or tap poked in the bottom. Has anyone tried this yet?

  12. Laura

    Hi, what is the font used in the title photo that reads “punch”?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      Learning Curve

  13. Kate

    Did you have to cut the end of your watermelon to get it to stand flat?

    • Lina (Hip's Modern Martha)

      No I tried to pick one that would set upright well when at the store, and had to kind of even out the top so it looked flat.

  14. Heather

    Freeze the melon balls as ice cubes
    especially so it won’t get watered down if it thaws out.

  15. amanda

  16. Dawn Pike
