I wanted to make a big batch of this for a party so I tweekad it just a bit. I cut up the watermelon and put it in the blender and added all of the puree to the punch bowl, not just the juice. Instead of lime juice, I used Simply Limeade and then sprite. So I used 6 cups of watermelon puree, 4 cups Sprite, and 1 1/2 cups Simply Limeade. Great recipe, thanks for sharing!

Paul Robinson, not John, was Joe Gilbert's partner. The name Houlihan's was actually an accident. The pair could not come up with what they considered a sure fire name. On one of the crates bringing restaurant equipment to the site the local shipping company wrote under the address label, "Houlihan's Old Place" to help the driver with directions. Paul Robinson saw this on the crate and knew he had a winning name. Tom Houlihan's wife was consulted and honored to have her husbands name remain with the building.
This recipe is great. We used it as the punch for my sister's wedding reception. We used Cranberry Cocktail juice because it was available in bulk, but everyone loved it.
