Had half a watermelon in the fridge and wanted to try something new, this was delicious! Served it with bbq chicken and mexican rice. I recommend dissolving the sugar in the vodka first. Read More

Refreshing fun summer party recipe! We really enjoyed this and all agreed that the alcohol/sugar/mint ratio is perfect. Be careful though you can not taste the vodka:) This will be a repeat many times before the summer party season is over. Thanks for sharing Paul. Read More

Once a month we have a gathering of friends to watch movies under the stars with. As we were showing "Jaws", I decided to offer this as a beachside treat and boy did it work magic. The vodka lulled the most unsuspecting movie goer into a relaxed state right up until the shark appeared! Thanks Paul for the treat! Read More

Simple fresh and a great adult twist on simple weekend watermelon. I used the fresh mint from my garden which made it that much more delicious. Read More

I went to a summer event today where we all bring food to share. This was a huge hit......everyone enjoyed it. Since I had a partial watermelon I adjusted the sugar and vodka to suit. I raided the fresh mint my friends garden so next year I'll grow my own (in a pot) with this recipe in mind..... Read More

Do not let the mint scare you! I started adding fresh mint to my cubed watermelon because by the end of summer I was a bit watermeloned-out. Served this version at my birthday party(adults only of course) and we ate an entire watermelon!!! The juice in the bottom of the bowl is the best part..... Read More
