Surprise your guests with ice-cold wedges of vodka-infused watermelon, the perfect boozy dessert for a hot summer day. Use leftover wedges to make a watermelon martini or a vodka-watermelon sparkler.
Start by cutting a hole from a medium-size, seedless watermelon. You can use an apple corer or a knife. I used a cupcake corer.
Make sure you core all the way into the red flesh of the watermelon.
Insert a funnel into the hole, pressing it all the way into the red flesh as well.
Measure out 1-1/2 cups of vodka.
Pour the vodka into the funnel. You might have to pour a little at a time, waiting as it absorbs. Let the watermelon sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours (or overnight) so the vodka can distribute itself throughout the fruit. You can reinsert the plug you cut out or use a wine cork if you need to transport the watermelon.
To serve, slice the watermelon into small wedges.
You can arrange the wedges simply on a tray, or serve them in martini glasses to dress them up.
If you're feeling extra fancy, then turn your boozy watermelon into cocktails instead.
