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.
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)
