fresh mint leaves, chopped
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.
This recipe was just awesome! It was the first to go at our family reunion picnic.
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.....
Huge hit at our Memorial Day party!!! Can't wait for another reason to celebrate. Yum!
I made this watermelon for a party with a bunch of my girlfriends and it was a HIT! I only had Passion Fruit flavored vodka but it worked out perfectly. I also divvied up the watermelon chunks into ziploc bags while they were chilling so all the pieces were equally soaked and it was so yummy! The mint leaves were perfect!
Do not let the mint scare you! I started adding fresh mint to my cubed watermelon because by the end of summer I was a bit watermeloned-out. Served this version at my birthday party(adults only of course) and we ate an entire watermelon!!! The juice in the bottom of the bowl is the best part.....
