Vanilla Vodka Infused Watermelon Sprinkled In Lime Sugar

Vanilla vodka infused watermelon sprinkled in lime sugar is the perfect deconstructed cocktail to serve at your next party.

Have you ever had vanilla vodka infused watermelon sprinkled in lime sugar? If your answer is yes, then you and I can be friends. If your answer is no, then you must give this recipe a try at your next gathering and we will quickly become friends. This is definitely the kind of deconstructed cocktail you want to serve when getting festive. As I like to call it the ‘party starter of all party starters.’ I say cocktail loosely because no cup needed and munching is part of the arrangement.

Imagine if you were at a fun event and this friendly batch of boozy watermelon showed up on a tray. How happy would you be? With graduation celebrations, summer cookouts, sporting events, 4th of July, etc… around the corner, these refreshing buzz makers are perfect. I love watermelon as much as the next person, and they are in season right now, but I promise you they taste a little better when served like this.

 

Ingredients for Vanilla Vodka Infused Watermelon Sprinkled In Lime Sugar:

  • 1 small watermelon (sliced into 1 inch thick wedges)
  • rind from 2 limes

Directions:

  1. Carefully split the vanilla bean using a sharp pairing knife. Then scrape out the beans. Add the beans and the empty vanilla bean pod to cup of vodka. Place in the fridge for 3 days.
  2. Place watermelon slices in a container, then pour vanilla infused vodka over the watermelon slices. Cover the container and place in the fridge for 2 days. Make sure to rearrange slices in the container every 12 hours so all slices can absorb the vodka.
