So I have this watermelon I bought, and it was pretty ripe, but it
had little flavor and no sweetness. Don't know why. Anyway, I had
eaten a bit of it and left the rest in the fridge with a big chunk
So last night I get to thinking there must be some sort of Adult
Beverage that would be good to use that watermelon on, googled the
idea, and decided to throw some in a blender with 2 limes of juice,
a tiny bit of sugar to sweeten it up a bit, and some white rum.
OHWOWWASTHATGOOD!!! A beautiful pink color, nice subtle flavor of
the melon and lime and the rum did not really punch through too
much. Could be deadly. but a nice summer cocktail, maybe even
adding a bit of fizzy water or ginger ale or something like that,
some basil or mint or something too, a mojito or something.
I ended up with about a quart or more of product, put the rest in
the fridge for later. I might just juice the rest and freeze it for
later bevvie production.
No flavor and no sweet because it was picked green fer grocery store
to keep a long time until some sucker bought it. Bet your gullah
friends can help you find ripe local melons.
Being brought up on fresh local melons, and fruit and vegetables of
all kinds, I find it very hard to tolerate grocery store melons,
apples and many other things. Perfect time now for a Muscatine
Foe wassermelon: hold it in one hand. tap on top with a finger. It
should sound hollow, and the vibrations should transmit through with
little to no change in amplitude.
