When you host a party, there are several things you need to have to ensure that your guests have a great time. Even if you donít want to go overboard on all the little details, it is still important to remember that the key ingredients that make any adult party a blast are food and alcohol.
If you plan on having a lot of guests at your party, buying food and alcohol to accommodate everyone can be a bit pricey. Do you really want to impress the crowd and save a little green in the process? Then, why not combine the two and make a Vodka Watermelon?!
A Vodka Watermelon is quite possibly one of the best party accoutrements ever created, especially when itís being served on a hot summer day. Guests can partake in a slice, satiate their hunger, and also start working on a tasty buzz.
Creating a Vodka Watermelon is simple. All you need is a few items, and youíll be ready to go in no time.
The four items needed to create a Vodka Watermelon are a watermelon, vodka, a knife, and a funnel. A mini watermelon works well with a 375 ml vodka bottle. However, if you buy a large watermelon, you will need a larger bottle, or even an additional bottle.
To begin, puncture the watermelon with the knife and create a hole on the top that is deep enough so that you can see the pink fruit, and is big enough to hold a funnel.
Next, insert the funnel and begin pouring in the vodka. Make sure to pure slowly, because the vodka needs time to absorb. You may have to start and stop several times until the vodka will no longer absorb into the fruit.
Once youíre done, the watermelon is ready to be served. Simply slice and let your guests have at it. While it really doesnít get much easier than that, there are some additional tips that you may find helpful when creating a Vodka Watermelon:
- Some people feel that a Vodka Watermelon tastes best after it has had a chance to rest for a day or two in a refrigerator. Others think that placing the watermelon in the freezer for a short amount of time before serving it gives it a colder, more refreshing flavor.
- Slicing it isnít the only way to serve it. If you really want to get fancy, halve the melon and use a melon baller to scoop out the fruit. Serve the scoops in the empty rind for a more impressive presentation.
- Another way is to try the previous technique, but take the scooped out fruit and serve it in glasses or bowls, while using the watermelon shell as a decorative punchbowl. You can also use the scoops to create frozen blender drinks.
- If you really want to get fancy with the watermelon, try adding different alcohols to create fun flavor options. Run, tequila, and champagne work well, as do many other liquors. To really make a good impression on your guests, create several watermelons, each containing a different alcoholic beverage.
