1 1/2 cups
rum, or as needed
I made this for last months girls nite and the ladies loved it. But instead of pouring the rum in the watermelon, I cut the melon into bite sized chunks and marinated it overnight in Pineapple flavored rum. I then made a punch out of Melon Verdi & Ginger ale and drained the rum off the watermelon and added the melon to the punch. It was the best summer drink we ever had.
Hmmm... this didn't work as nicely as I expected. My watermelon was not absorbing the alcohol so I had to take the funnel out and directly insert the bottle into the watermelon. I am not sure how much actually made it in there. Besides all of that, it was quite tastey. Definately serve cold. Once it is room temp the alcohol flavor becomes strong. If I do this again I will let cut up watermelon soak in a bowl of alcohol. I think more would be absorbed rather than wasted.
this has been a staple at every outdoor and/or summery gathering i hold or go to for years. if you want something really wild, try it with half citrus vodka and half watermellon schnapps. the taste keeps people coming back for more, and the drunken hilarity that's sure to follow makes it definitely worth it.
I have done this for many BBQ's I use Vodka, very delicious!
Try Malibu rum - the end result (not kidding) tastes kind of like cotton candy! Serve while still cold.
Jeez...bringing back memories. We used to cut a small lid & then hollow out the melon. Strain the juice discard the meat and return the juice to the shell, with a can of frozen lemon/lime & a quart of vodka or gin and a pile of crushed ice. Put the lid back on, plunk it on the beach with a pair of sunglasses & a ball cap with a few lengths of rubber tubing & well *hic*
We used Pure Grain because we didn't want to taste the alcohol, we just wanted to taste the fruit and shall I say "feel the drink?". This fit the bill nicely. Thanks :)
I use a marinade injector and Watermelon Vodka. Serve really cold. YUMMY!
