Watermelon Punch



Watermelon Punch


• 1 lemon or orange, washed and sliced

• 1 2-liter bottle of lemon lime soda, chilled. Reserve half

• 1 large watermelon

• 1 6-ounce can frozen orange juice concentrate

• ¾ cup sugar or to taste


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.
