Rum Watermelon

    2 hours 10 minutes

    This is a great treat for adults, rum is added via funnel into a whole watermelon then left to soak in and marinate. Other alcohols can be used if preferred.

    Serves: 12 

    • 1 seedless watermelon
    • 1 1/2 cups rum, or as needed

    Preparation:10min  ›  Extra time:2hours marinating  ›  Ready in:2hours10min 

    1. Rinse the outer rind of the watermelon thoroughly and pat dry. Set the watermelon in a position so it will not roll over.
    2. Press the tip of a funnel through the rind of the melon. If using a plastic funnel you may need to cut a hole.
    3. Situate the melon on a towel in the bottom of the refrigerator or on the counter.
    4. Pour rum into the funnel a little at a time refilling as it seeps into the melon. I start the afternoon before since we usually leave to go to events in the morning. 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 USA and 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 USA and Canada)
