Vodka-Infused Watermelon

Vodka. Infused. Watermelon. Need we say more?

Ingredients

1
(26-ounce) bottle of vodka
1
large watermelon

Directions

  • 1 If your watermelon doesnt have a flat side that allows it to rest securely on the counter, slice a small portion of the rind off, creating a flat surface.
  • 2 Remove the cap from your vodka and place it on the top-center of your watermelon. Using a marker, trace around the cap.
  • 3 Once you have outlined the cap, use a sharp knife to cut around the circle. Once cut completely, remove the watermelon rind. Save the rind to use as a plug if you will be transporting the watermelon.
  • 4 Take a spoon and clear away any watermelon that may get in the way of the neck of the bottle.
  • 5 Place the cap back on your vodka and place the neck of the bottle in the hole, making sure it can rest securely in the watermelon.
  • 6 Once the hole is ready, rotate the watermelon so the hole is on its side. TIP: Doing this at the edge of a counter or table will allow you to rotate the watermelon more, making it easier to insert the bottle of vodka without spilling.
  • 7 Insert the bottle of vodka, rotating the watermelon back into its secure position.
  • 8 Allow watermelon to infuse for 12-24 hours at room temperature.
  • 9 Once the vodka has infused into the watermelon, refrigerate until cold (if preferred), then cut into slices and enjoy responsibly!

Step By Step  

How to Make Vodka-Infused Watermelon

As prepared by BS in the Kitchen,

It's like DIY genetically modified food, but without having to be a mad scientist!

Although I kind of felt like one after eating this! Too much vodka maybe?? Aaanyways, this is a pretty awesome trick, and really easy to do. See for yourself!


 


Let the infusion begin!

First off, you are going to need some supplies: vodka, watermelon, a marker, a knife, and a spoon. If you're lucky like me, you will find a watermelon that has one flat side, making it perfectly stable and ready for holding a bottle of vodka for 24 hours! If you can't find any deformed watermelons, no worries! Just find the flattest side, and slice a bit of the rind off to give it a flat surface.

Once your watermelon has been stabilized, take the cap off your vodka bottle, place it at the top and center of your watermelon, trace a circle around it with a marker. With a sharp knife, cut around the circle, and remove your new "watermelon cork" (save it to plug the watermelon if you're transporting it!). Once you have your hole, take a spoon and clear out enough space inside the watermelon to fit the entire neck  of the vodka bottle.

Now here is the tricky part! First, put the cap back on the vodka bottle and insert it into the hole, making sure it can rest upside down in your watermelon. Once the hole is ready, rotate the watermelon so the hole is on the side (doing this on the edge of a table or counter would work great). Remove the cap, taking the bottle of vodka in your hand, lower it as far as you can without spilling, then insert it into the hole and rotate the watermelon back to its secure position.

Congratulations! You have begun the infusion process! Now just let the watermelon and vodka sit for 12-24 hours at room temperature. If fruit flies are a concern, create a seal around the hole with plastic wrap.

Once all of the vodka has infused into the watermelon, feel free to slice and serve immediately. If you prefer it cold, place the watermelon in the fridge for a few hours before serving!

Enjoy your infused watermelon and remember to drink (/eat?) responsibly!
