August 3rd is National Watermelon Day, and we here at Joe’s Daily think the only way to celebrate it right is with a good Patrón sipping cocktail that comes from a tapped watermelon. You can reference the deliciousness in the photo above.

Find all the ingredients and complete directions on how to make this spiked punch recipe below:

Patrón Watermelon Patio Punch Recipe

Serves 8-10 people


  • 750 ml Bottle of Patrón Silver
  • 4 cups Watermelon juice
  • 1 cup Fresh lime juice
  • 1 cup Simple syrup, to taste
  • .5 tsp Salt


  1. Lay a (preferably seedless) watermelon on its side and assess which end would be the “bottom” if you were to stand it on its end.
  2. Using a chef’s knife, slice off a small bit of the rounded end to create a flat surface, being careful not to cut through to the flesh.
  3. Slice off the opposite end to create a “lid”, and stand the watermelon upright.
    Using a large spoon or ice cream scoop, hollow out the watermelon, being sure to save the flesh and any juices. Transfer flesh to a blender and puree lightly, enough to liquefy the mixture. Strain through a fine mesh strainer to remove any pulp.
  4. Combine Patrón Silver, watermelon juice, lime juice, simple syrup and salt and stir to thoroughly combine. Return contents to the watermelon for service and ice to chill.
  5. Use a “watermelon tap” if you have such a device or use the watermelon as a punch bowl, ladling out the punch.
