- Use a good mid level vodka like Ketel One because you will usually make a cocktail that is mostly vodka so you need good quality since you’ll taste it.
- My recipes for the all my infused alcohol is sugar free. And fruit has a lot of sugar in it so it will be sweetened naturally.
How to make this infused vodka
Gather the ingredients – watermelon, vodka and a jar.
Get a 32 ounce ball jar and add watermelon into it, minus the seeds. Fill it all the way to the top.
Pour the vodka into the ball jar to meet up with the watermelon. It took about 2 cups of vodka to cover the fruit.
Screw the cap on the ball jar and place it into the refrigerator. Let it sit for a week. Take it out once a day to shake it.
You can taste it after a four days to see if the infused vodka is done but I find it takes a full week to be perfect.
This is what the watermelon infused vodka looks like after a week in the fridge.
As you can see, the watermelon shrinks.
Here is my warning to you. Do NOT eat the watermelon. If you do, you will find a spongy mess in your mouth. Best to just throw it away.
Here is the vodka after I take out all the watermelon!
Look at how pink it is!!
