Refreshing Melon

Today's summer is very hot so we are looking for something that will refresh our body. Mostly sidewalk vendors sold fruit shake. Well why not trying something in your house and making this watermelon punch or "Subak wachae" Korean people called it. It's simple and very refreshing.
Ingredients are:
1 watermelon 1 tablespoon pine peanuts,
1 bottle cider 1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brandy 1 cup water

How to prepare:
1. Cut the upper part of the watermelon in a sawtooth-design. Scoop out watermelon balls with a melon baller.
2. Boil 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar to make the syrup.
3. Soak the watermelon balls in the syrup. Wrap the remaining watermelon in a cloth and squeeze out the juice.
4. Place the watermelon balls, syrup, cider, brandy and #3 watermelon juice in the watermelon shell and float ice pieces on top.
5. Serve the watermelon punch sprinkled with pine nuts in a bowl.
