Water-Cooler Punch


"This punch is also fun to serve in a hollowed-out watermelon," says Philips. "Place the empty watermelon in the freezer for a while to chill it completely before serving."

You'll need

500 ml freshly juiced (or blended) watermelon juice 150 ml freshly squeezed lemon juice 150 ml sugar syrup (see note) 1 cup (firmly packed) mint, plus extra sprigs to garnish 150 ml Aperol 300 ml gin To garnish: lemon slices

Method

  • 01
  • Process watermelon, lemon juice, sugar syrup and mint leaves in a blender, then refrigerate for flavours to develop and to chill (20-30 minutes). Stir in Aperol and gin and transfer to a chilled jug. Serve over ice, garnished with mint sprigs and sliced lemon.
Note For sugar syrup, combine equal parts sugar and water, bring to the boil, then cool completely and refrigerate.
