This yummy punch will help celebrate Independence Day and quench a summer thirst.

Here is what you’ll need.

  • A full bottle of chilled dry rosé, sparkling or non-sparkling
  • 1 1/2 cups of strawberry or watermelon vodka
  • Loads of fresh or frozen strawberries
  • Plenty of watermelon chunks
  • 4-5 cups of raspberry lemonade
  • Large pitcher

Wash fresh strawberries, hull, and cut into bite sized pieces.

Frozen strawberries can be added directly from the bag.

Use a toothpick to rid the watermelon of the seeds.

Large seeds might sink to the bottom of the pitcher, and small seeds generally float to the surface.

Cut watermelon into bite sized chunks be sure to use the juice in the punch.

Add all ingredients to the pitcher and allow to sit for a few hours in the refrigerator.

White cranberry juice is a nice substitute for the raspberry lemonade.
