Sparkling Watermelon Punch
How is it already the end of August?! Before we know it the summer will be over and we'll be sipping pumpkin spice lattes while we tailgate for our fav football team. So how am I getting the most out of these final days of summer? Three words. Sparkling Watermelon Punch.
Watermelon is my favorite fruit to gorge on during the summer. It's refreshing and light so you can eat an entire watermelon and not feel like a total whale afterwards. Not that I've ever tried to do that or anything... So it's only natural to put all that fresh watermelon to good use - in a cocktail. This big batch punch is perfect for your next summer BBQ. It's light and bubbly, which is exactly what you want to be sipping on while you are grilling up all those meats. It's just a little tart and not too sweet, so even the dudes at the party won't feel too girly sipping on it too.
The best part? It's only 4 ingredients and it comes together in less than 2 minutes. Forget spending all that time fussing over complicated recipes! You need to be out on the patio, sipping this punch and soaking up what's left of the summer sun. Go ahead and pin this bad boy now because you know you're gonna want to bust this out all weekend long when Labor Day rolls around next week! Speaking of Labor Day, keep an eye out on the blog, because we're rounding up our favorite Sauce + Style recipes to keep your celebrations going all weekend long, Pig of the Month BBQ style.
