Ingredients

  • 1 lemon or orange washed and sliced
  • 2 liters lemon lime soda chilled. Reserve half
  • 1 large watermelon
  • 6 oz frozen orange juice concentrate
  • 3/4 cup sugar or to taste

Instructions

  • The ice mold should be made earlier, in time for it to freeze. The punch needs to be made just before serving.

Ice Ring:

  • Slice the lemon or orange and arrange in the ice mold. Pour 1/2 the lemon-lime soda into the mold and freeze.

Punch:

  • Cut watermelon into halves. Scoop out pulp and place in blender, seeds and all.

  • Blend for several seconds on medium speed. Strain through a fine-sieve colander, squeezing out juice. Discard solid parts.

  • Pour watermelon juice into a large container with lid. Add orange juice concentrate and sugar and stir until sugar and orange juice are dissolved. Chill until ready to serve.

  • When ready to serve, pour punch into clear glass or plastic punch bowl. Add the lemon-lime soda and stir. Place ice ring in the punch bowl.

Serving Suggestions:

  • This is a gorgeous red punch, so be sure to serve it in a clear glass or plastic container. It looks great served in wine glasses.
