Vodka Watermelon! How to Fill a Fruit with Booze

Sweet Paul

So, you're at a picnic, and you bring out what looks like an average watermelon. You cut it into wedges. You shoo away any children under the age of 21. Then you watch your friends' faces light up as they realize the cold, juicy fruit is infused with vodka--like boozy popsicles, only way, way cooler. This tip comes from Sweet Paul (who has a beautiful online magazine), and he makes it look ridiculously easy. Cut a hole in the watermelon, stick in a funnel, fill with vodka, let it sit for a couple of days in the fridge.

Even better, he uses lime-infused vodka. Yum.

Has anyone ever done this? Does it work? What does it taste like? We're imagining a sophisticated version of a Jell-O shot...
