Show/Hide comments [ 8 ] Ah, the science of a boozy watermelon. I have heard legend of it, but I have never seen it… Reply Ahhh, boozy watermelon. Those were the good old days. Also a fave? Pineapple chunks soaked in coconut rum. 3 agree Reply omgosh…. this sounds amazing…. Reply Oooh, looks yummy. Reply We've done this before by simply cutting a hole in the melon and sticking a bottle of vodka right in it. Sit back and watch the vodka slowly disappear into the melon. Delish! 1 agrees Reply I've also seen instructions for "tapping" a boozy watermelon, too! Reply This is a summer tradition that my favorite aunt and I indulge in annually. We also make something that has been called "Yukaflux" for as long as I can remember. Basically you half fill a clean cooler with cut up fruit of every variety (although I don't recommend bananas) and then pour whatever alcohol you have in the house over top of it (it's a great way to empty all those half-bottles, LOL) and leave it marinate overnight. It's sort of like sangria I guess, but it tastes different every time, since you just add whatever you have. It's a real hit at weekend backyard parties. You can also make a kid-friendly recipe by using orange and pineapple juice instead of alcohol. 1 agrees Reply It sounds like a Flaming Moe. Only without the fire and the cough syrup. 😉 1 agrees Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
