Now, before we get started, a word of warning: Clearly mark the spiked watermelon, because nothing ruins a family reunion faster than getting everyone’s kids loaded.
No matter what the current trendy fruit is, watermelon has long held the title for the official fruit of summer, but if you prefer your fruity goodness to come with a kick (or are having a gathering where a recycling can full of beer bottles is going to earn you a stern talking to from the park ranger if not an escort to the gate), then liquor-infusing that melon is the way to go.
Sweet Paul at The Kitchn has generously provided instructions as to how to funnel flavored vodka into a watermelon for a summertime treat that can’t be beat. It does take a few days to absorb, so best not leave this one until the last minute.
