Celebrate the Lazy Days of Summer with a Mermaid Punch Mocktail Drink Recipe



As soon as the snow melts and warm weather starts peeking, I find myself longing for delicious nonalcoholic drinks to satisfy my thirst. Obviously, water is my go to drink to do so but when I am relaxing on my deck sipping tasty summer drinks, I like indulging in a colorful mocktail recipe. It makes me feel like I am on a beach or far far away from the city. I feel on vacation. Don’t you agree? Sometimes, a nice drink, a relaxing summer chair, and a good book are all that I need to relax. For this upcoming summer season, I tried this delicious mermaid punch mocktail recipe. My daughter went nuts when she saw it. It is totally cute and so easy to make!

  • 1 bottle of Welches Watermelon juice
  • 1 cup of Pineapple Juice
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Lime slices for garnish
  • Sanding sugar ( green )

  • Take your glassware and dip the rims in the simple syrup and then the sanding sugar and set to the side
  • Fill your glasses with ice 3/4 of the way full
  • Pour your Welches juice 1/2 way full in each glass
  • Now add your pineapple juice on top of the Welches juice
  • Top off your drink with the fresh lime juice
  • Add your lime slices for garnish and add one on top



This mermaid-inspired virgin drink is so easy to make. Little one had fun preparing the ingredients and drinking it! Once the snow melts (hopefully, it will be sooner than later), we will pull out a nice chair, a book, some background music and enjoy this delicious summer drink!

  1. Brilliant! It looks so refreshing as well, I love that it has a hint of lime and some pineapple juice. Thanks for sharing the recipe, I can’t wait to try it!

  2. I love the idea of creating mocktails for kids. I remember always ordering a Shirley Temple when out with my parents as a kid. It would have been nice to have options.

  3. I am always looking for something new to drink. It seems like all the same beverages get boring. I have a hard time getting all my water in before I venture to flavored drinks but am more than ready for something yummy. Thanks for the new ideas!

  4. First of all those are absolutely BEAUTIFUL drinks! I wouldn’t want to drink mine they’re so pretty! Secondly … Welches Watermelon juice? What? I LOVE watermelon juice but have only found it twice in the US. I had no idea Welches makes it. I’m looking it up right now and you can bet it will be on my next grocery list!
