Thirsty Thursday | Ginger Watermelon Punch

Punch is quite under-rated. Much like the cake-to-cookie relationship - Punch is often passed over for the sexier sangria or a strong cocktail. I get it - punch is a little less sophisticated but dang, punch is fun! 

Making fruit water has become my new summer saver - and not just for pairing with booze. Fruit pureed and strained makes a great alternative to water and also makes delicious ice pops. 

Ginger Watermelon Punch
makes 8 servings 

4 cups watermelon juice, instructions follow 
12 ounces strong ginger ale, we love Red Rocks  
12 ounces soda water 
1 cup tequila 
1/4 cup orange liquor 
1 lime, juiced 

Combine all and chill for one hour. Enjoy cold over ice, on a porch swing. 

For Watermelon Water:

Puree 6 cups cubed watermelon (about 1 personal-sized watermelon) until smooth in a blender or food processor. Strain the resulting liquid through a fine mesh strainer and store in the fridge for up to 3 days.
