Do you have a favorite go-to summer drink?  For many its a cold, crisp glass of lemonade, or a fresh pour of iced tea.  Don’t get me wrong – I really love both of these, especially my Ginger Peach Iced Tea, my Arnold Palmer Iced Tea and Sparkling Blackberry Lemonade.  But sometimes a cold, refreshing cocktail is in order.  Something fruity, crisp and with the addition of a fantastic rum is perfect on a warm summer day.  My cool, fruity and refreshing Watermelon Coconut Rum Punch fits the bill perfectly!

Here’s how this wonderful coconut rum punch recipe comes together:

Step 1: Gather Ingredients and Refrigerate

When making this simple coconut rum punch, one of the most important steps is starting with cold ingredients.  If you’re making this cocktail for a party or get-together, consider prepping the ingredients before-hand and refrigerating.  You could even mix beforehand, refrigerate and pour once your guests arrive. Once you’re ready to make the punch, not only will everything be ready to go, but it will be cold and ready to drink in moments.

Step 2: Blend the watermelon and lime juice

This step may take all of 30 seconds, and you’ll quickly have a juicy, sweet watermelon puree.  This juicy puree will act as the base of the cocktail and deliver serious flavor in every sip.  You can then pour this puree into a pitcher or drink dispenser.  Then, to complete the punch, simply add the rum and sparkling water.  Depending on how strong you like your punch, test by pouring just half of the water into the punch.  You can always add additional water or rum should you want a stronger or weaker drink.

Step 3: Add lime slices, stir and serve

I sliced up two limes simply to add to the glasses and pitcher.  Not only does it add some additional lime flavor, it adds some pretty green color to the punch as well.  Next, stir up the punch, and pour into glasses.  Garnish with additional lime slices, wedges of watermelon and a sprinkling of flake coconut.

Serve up this amazing coconut rum punch anytime you’re in the mood for a delicious cocktail.  This drink is perfect to serve for  parties, showers, back yard cookouts, or anytime you’re in the mood for a fresh, fruity drink.  Dust off your favorite patio chair, pour your self a glass of this amazing punch, and enjoy the amazing flavors of summer one sip at a time.  Cheers! ~Erin
