watermelon punchAs the weather gets warmer, you may be looking for a summer soft drink that’s extra refreshing and just a little different. Well, this week we’ve got one for you: Watermelon Punch from Big Mill B&B in Williamston, North Carolina.  There’s a whole watermelon in this bowlful of punch — with orange juice concentrate and lemon-lime soda adding a touch of citrus flavor. An ice ring, made in advance with soda and fresh fruit, makes this special enough for a party, outdoors or in. Big Mill offers “country luxury” in the midst of farmland, forest, and gardens, conveniently close to highways.
