Watermelon Punch

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 small, evenly-shaped watermelon
  • 1/4 cup brandy
  • 1 can (12 oz) lemon-lime soda
  • Ice cubes
  • 1 teaspoon shelled pine nuts


In a saucepan, bring sugar and water to a boil; cool. Scoop watermelon with a melon baller; discard seeds. Pour sugar syrup over watermelon balls. Scoop remaining watermelon; squeeze in a clean cloth to extract juice. Combine watermelon balls, watermelon juice, and brandy; chill. Cut the upper edge of the watermelon shell in a saw-tooth design and use as a punch bowl. Just before serving, add watermelon mixture, soda, and ice cubes to watermelon shell. Sprinkle with nuts. Makes 10 to 12 servings.
