Watermelon Vodka

This is a really funny thing I saw an American friend of mine make. Great for a barbie or party. Wish I’d known about this when I was going to school parties–I could have walked in with my watermelon and got all my mates completely sloshed! Needs to be started a few days–even a week–before you can plan to eat it.

1 large, ripe watermelon--give it a smell and slap to check for ripeness

1 bottle best quality vodka (or even champagne)


  1. Simply cut a hole in the top of the melon, wide and deep enough to insert a funnel. Pour some of your chosen alcohol into the melon through the funnel, leave to sit for a day and pour in some more. The flesh will absorb the liquid, so pour in some more the next day--basically until it becomes saturated. When ready to serve, slice up into nice big pieces and get all your mates plastered on it!;
