Sometimes at the grocery store, I just can’t resist novelty stuff. Here’s my latest example. A mini watermelon. It was labeled “personal watermelon,” which I just couldn’t stop cracking up over. So I had to buy it. When I got home, the reality of the situation hit. I couldn’t figure out what to do with it, or what I was doing buying a watermelon mid-winter. It would probably be tasteless. Then the light bulb went off: fill it with vodka!
In case you’ve never had the pleasure of having vodka watermelon, I highly suggest giving this a try. And guess what? The watermelon was incredibly delicious- full of flavor, just like it was summer.
Ingredients: (will vary based on size of watermelon)
Pick a decent or top shelf vodka. Absolut is about as “low” as I’d go, personally.
Pour the vodka into the hole in the watermelon. If you aren’t coordinated, use a funnel. It may take some time for the vodka to disperse. We ended up pouring it in 3-4 times over the course of two hours to make sure there was plenty of booze in there.
Chill in the fridge for at least 8 hours, or at maximum, two days.
