Had half a watermelon in the fridge and wanted to try something new, this was delicious! Served it with bbq chicken and mexican rice. I recommend dissolving the sugar in the vodka first.

Refreshing, fun summer party recipe! We really enjoyed this and all agreed that the alcohol/sugar/mint ratio is perfect. Be careful though, you can not taste the vodka :) This will be a repeat many times before the summer party season is over. Thanks for sharing, Paul.

Simple, fresh and a great adult twist on simple weekend watermelon. I used the fresh mint from my garden, which made it that much more delicious.

I went to a summer event today where we all bring food to share. This was a huge hit......everyone enjoyed it. Since I had a partial watermelon I adjusted the sugar and vodka to suit. I raided the fresh mint my friends garden so next year I'll grow my own (in a pot) with this recipe in mind.....

Once a month we have a gathering of friends to watch movies under the stars with. As we were showing "Jaws", I decided to offer this as a beachside treat and boy did it work magic. The vodka lulled the most unsuspecting movie goer into a relaxed state right up until the shark appeared! Thanks Paul for the treat!

Great for a summer day! I was skeptical about this at first, but the risk panned out! Very tasty!
