Watermelon Punch Cocktail Recipe

We're in the middle of a long hot summer here in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. As we enjoy our backyard barbecues in this (hopefully) post-pandemic world, we would love to offer up our Watermelon Punch recipe. The new ultimate summertime cocktail is not only tasty and refreshing, but it's also a healthy alternative to sugary, artificial sweetened drinks!

So, yea. A healthy, boozy, summertime drink just for you and 8-12 of your friends and neighbors! Enjoy!

Watermelon Punch Cocktail by Domaci


  • 1 watermelon, flesh scooped out (keep shell for serving if desired)
  • 2 cups of gin (Social Still is our go to!)
  • 1 cup dry vermouth
  • 1 cup fresh lime juice
  • 4 ounces maple syrup



  1. Remove all the seeds from the watermelon flesh, and place it in a blender. Blend on high until smooth; this should yield about 4 cups of juice. 
  2. In a punch bowl or large pitcher combine the watermelon juice, gin, vermouth, lime juice, and syrup. Stir. Chill until ready to serve.
  3. Serve in a punch bowl with ladle, larger pitcher, or in the watermelon shell tapped with a spigot. 

Drink up and enjoy!
