So, what did you do over the weekend?
First off, the internet lied. The videos I watched before attempting this, made it seem like this watermelon would be my long lost drinking buddy and that it would down the vodka in no time. WRONG. Even after over 24 hours of "drinking," there was still about 1/4 of a bottle left.
I also had to help the process by moving the bottle up and down every other 30 minutes or so. The act was seemed very dirty, but then again I am extremely immature. But each time I would move the bottle in and out, it would release several big air bubbles.
When my library friends and I started eating it, there was no hint of vodka at all --- no taste nor smell. It took several slices before we tasted it and boy, when you tasted it, it was overwhelming. The thing is, is that you could not tell where the vodka was. You would think that where the bottle dumped into the middle of the melon would be the strongest, NOPE. It was like playing Russian Roulette with each bite.
The absorption was not as spread as evenly as I would have liked, it was either all watermelon or straight vodka. Will I attempt this again? Maybe... I'll probably try with a Sugar Baby and a smaller bottle of alcohol. I also cut the hole the same size as the bottle opening, but the bottle tapers so with it jammed all the way in, the hole becomes too big to put the cut plug back in to rotate the melon. I think I'll also try using a fruit flavored vodka to give it some flair. Summer isn't over yet, so I hopefully I will be able to perfect this for next year.
