Coincidence that National Rum Punch Day falls on a Saturday? I think NOT!

For this food holiday, I had to go with a watermelon rum punch. When I was thinking of what to make, I just knew watermelon had to be involved. It’s so juicy and delicious and I happened to be craving it.

After some muddling, addition of rum, some citrus juices and basil, the rum punch was complete. To make it perfect, I just need some sand, blue skies, and a breeze. Have a great weekend!
