  • 6 cups watermelon juice
  • 3/4 cup lemon juice fresh squeezed
  • 1/4 cup lime juice fresh squeezed
  • 6 1/2 ounces simple syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups tequila
  • 1/8 cup Cointreau


  • To make watermelon juice, cut a whole watermelon into chunks with the rind removed.
  • Add the watermelon chunks into a blender and blend until liquid.
  • Drape a cheesecloth over a strainer with a bowl below and pour the watermelon juice onto the cheesecloth. The bowl below will catch just the juice, leaving any thickness behind to throw away.
  • Add all of the ingredients in a large pitcher or punch bowl.
  • Add ice when ready to serve and garnish with watermelon slices.


Make simple syrup by combing 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a saucepan over low heat and stir until the sugar is melted.
Let it cool to room temperature before adding to the punch bowl.
