Pick a watermelon with a nice green color and a skin with no indentations or blemishes so that it will make a good looking bowl.
Cut a small sliver off the bottom of the watermelon. Try not to cut into the pink flesh, you simply want to create a flat base for your bowl.
Cut about 1/4 off the top of the watermelon.
This recipe may make more punch than will fit back in the watermelon bowl. Keep some of the punch in the refrigerator and refill the watermelon bowl as needed.
