With the Big Game just around the corner, many of us are hosting viewing parties and are looking for easy and festive game day recipes. How about making a light, refreshing, thirst-quenching, four-ingredient punch that can be prepared in just minutes? Watermelon Strawberry POWERADE Punch is kid-friendly and the perfect beverage to serve at a gathering.

This punch is fruity, slightly sweet, and effervescent. It’s made with strawberry flavored POWERADE ZERO, Minute Maid Watermelon Flavored Fruit Drink, and Schweppes Club Soda. Frozen strawberries add garnish, and help keep the punch chilled. Both POWERADE ZERO and club soda have zero calories, making this punch a lower-calorie option.

  • 1 Bottle Strawberry Powerade Zero (32 oz.)
  • 32 Ounce Minute Maid Watermelon Juice
  • 1 Bottle Schweppes Club Soda (1 L)
  • 1 Bag frozen strawberries (12 oz.)

  1. Pour the Strawberry Powerade into a pitcher. Then pour in an equal amount of Minute Maid Watermelon Juice. You can use the empty Powerade bottle to measure. Add a liter of Schweppes Club Soda. Add the frozen strawberries. Pour the punch into glasses, add a straw, and serve. Prepare this punch either just before guests arrive to watch the game. Making the punch just prior to serving will ensure that it stays carbonated longer. Cheers!
