All of this is worth celebrating.
Enter the Watermelon Raspberry Rum Punch. This fruity and frothy cocktail goes down easy.
It's the perfect drink to sip by the pool with a few other mom friends as you savor those last few days of summer break — or to celebrate the first few days of school and (at least for me) a chance to reclaim the house.
Watermelon Raspberry Rum Punch
6 cups seedless watermelon, cubed
1 pint ripe raspberries
Juice of 1 lemon (or about 2 tablespoons lemon juice)
1 cup light rum or lemon or citrus-flavored rum
1 to 2 tablespoons sugar or splenda (optional)
Place all ingredients in blender. Blend or pulse until smooth.
Pour through strainer. Serve over ice with a garnish of small watermelon slices or a few raspberries. Drink and enjoy with friends.
