Watermelon Cocktail Punch

The Recipe

6 cups watermelon juice

3/4 cup lemon juice, freshly squeezed

2 tsp nubeleaf’s Lime Juice powder

6 1/2 oz simple syrup

1 1/2 cups tequila

1/8 cup cointreau



  1. Cut a whole watermelon into chunks with the rind removed.

  2. Add the watermelon chunks into a blender and blend until liquid.

  3. Drape a cheesecloth over a strainer with a bowl below and pour the watermelon juice onto the cheesecloth. The bowl below will catch just the juice, leaving any thickness behind to throw away.

  4. Pour watermelon juice into a punch bowl.

  5. Make a simple syrup by adding 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water into a sauce pan and simmer until the sugar is melted, let it cool.

  6. Add in the rest of the ingredients (recipe below) and stir.

  7. Slice half of a watermelon in slices to garnish the punch.

  8. Add the ice and watermelon slices right before serving.

  9. Serve with a ladle and enjoy!
