Rum-soaked watermelon

    10 min

    A great dessert to serve during the warm summer months. Watermelon is slowly soaked in rum. It's refreshing and incredibly delicious. Feel free to use any alcohol you prefer.

    • 1 seedless watermelon
    • 350ml rum or as needed

    1. Rinse the outer rind of the watermelon thoroughly and pat dry. Set the watermelon in a position so it will not roll over. Press the tip of a funnel through the rind of the melon. If using a plastic funnel, you may need to cut a hole.
    2. Situate the melon on a towel in the bottom of the refrigerator. Pour rum into the funnel a little at a time, refilling as it seeps into the melon. Allow the melon to marinate at least a few hours, before removing the funnel. Slice just before serving.

    I made this for last months girls nite and the ladies loved it. But instead of pouring the rum in the watermelon, I cut the melon into bite sized chunks and marinated it overnight in Pineapple flavored rum. I then made a punch out of Melon Verdi & Ginger ale and drained the rum off the watermelon and added the melon to the punch. It was the best summer drink we ever had.  -  27 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    this has been a staple at every outdoor and/or summery gathering i hold or go to for years. if you want something really wild, try it with half citrus vodka and half watermellon schnapps. the taste keeps people coming back for more, and the drunken hilarity that's sure to follow makes it definitely worth it.  -  24 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
