  • Ready In

  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 or on the counter. 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.

Try Malibu rum - the end result (not kidding) tastes kind of like cotton candy! Serve while still cold.

We used Pure Grain because we didn't want to taste the alcohol, we just wanted to taste the fruit and shall I say "feel the drink?". This fit the bill nicely. Thanks :)
