My journey to living in Las Cruces, NM, a little city in southern New Mexico -- My days after I move, my life in Dona Ana and Luna County, and my adventures in Southwest America.
Watermelon Over the Moon
1 large watermelon
1 bottle Vodka
1 bottle watermelon
On a counter or table, place a watermelon
upright and use a large knife to cut a medium-size hole into the watermelon. Cut as deep as you can into the watermelon. Toss out any removed rind and
watermelon pieces. Insert a funnel into the hole and slowly pour a bottle of
Vodka into the hole. Let the Vodka settle for 5 minutes. You may notice some
Vodka escaping – this is OK. Slowly pour a bottle of watermelon extract into
the hole. Cover the watermelon with plastic wrap. Refrigerate the watermelon
overnight. When cutting the watermelon, cut from the top first and serve the
top portion of the fruit and then the bottom portion.
