Sparkling Watermelon Punch Bowl

Author - Serena Wolf
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Yields: 12 cocktails


  • Ingredients:
  • 1 oblong seedless watermelon about 8 pounds
  • 3 cups vodka of your choice I recommend Tito’s
  • ¾ cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 cups club soda
  • For garnish: optional
  • Fresh mint
  • Lime slices


  • Slice the top sixth of your watermelon lengthwise using a sharp knife. (Don’t worry if it’s not exactly a sixth. Just cut a “lid” off that exposes enough of the melon to hollow it out easily, okay?) Please do this sober.
  • Scoop out the flesh of the watermelon until the rind is left with minimal pink showing.
  • In a blender or food processor, puree the watermelon in batches. Strain the puree through a fine mesh strainer, and discard the solids. You should be left with about 9 cups of watermelon juice.
  • Pour the watermelon juice back into the watermelon punch bowl. Add the vodka, lime juice and club soda and stir to combine.

To serve your Sparkling Watermelon Punch Bowl:

  • Go trashy: Add ice to your sparkling watermelon punch bowl along with as many straws as you like. Get your friends. Get weird.
  • Go classy: Ladle punch over ice and garnish with fresh mint and lime slices.
