(recipe, Carrie Floyd)
Though this recipe calls for watermelon, feel free to substitute honeydew or other types of melon.
Store it in the fridge; shake it up before serving it cold in small glasses. Or turn it into a cocktail by mixing a shot of watermelon vodka with fresh lime juice and simple syrup to taste.
- 6 cups cubed watermelon (or another melon)
- 2½ cups vodka
- Place the cubed watermelon in a large jar with a lid. Pour the vodka over the top, pushing down on the melon to make sure the melon is covered by the vodka. Fasten the lid.
- Set the jar aside for 5 days, then strain the vodka, pressing on the melon to extract as much liquid as possible. Discard the melon and pour the infused vodka into a liter jar with a lid.
- Store in the refrigerator.
