Rum Runners Watermelon: Summer Drink Recipe

If you need your daily dose of fruit, but also want to get lit while doing it, you’ve come to the right place. This is the perfect summer drink recipe.

We first came up with this idea after visiting the Mac and Cheese festival where we got a blended pineapple to drink. The only thing that would make it more delicious than it already was? Rum. And lots of it.

The Rum Runners Watermelon is the perfect summer drink that will ‘wow’ all your friends, even though it took 5 mins to make and only calls for two ingredients.

Summer Drink Recipe


Half a watermelon

Dark Rum


Cut the watermelon in half, and put one half of the watermelon away to use later. Scrape out all of the watermelon from the shell (leaving the shell intact to pour the drink into after you are done) and place it into a blender.

Add as much rum as you desire and blend until smooth. If you don’t have a blender big enough for this recipe, using a food processor will also work!

Pour the blended drink into the watermelon shell, add some straws and enjoy this perfect summer drink recipe!
