Who first came up with the idea of ​​pumping alcohol into a watermelon, we do not know. But we can guarantee: with such a watermelon the party will succeed!

You will need a minimum of tools, labor and cooking skills to prepare this cheerful dessert. Watermelon should be squeezed with alcohol: it can be vodka, champagne, and liquors. Choose to your taste.

Vodka can be sharp, but if you do not mind, choose it. If champagne is more to your liking – use only brut, otherwise the watermelon can quickly ferment. Finally, liquors can create a pleasant, richly sweet taste. But in our opinion, cognac will be the best companion to the taste of watermelon.

An ideal tool for filling a watermelon with alcohol is a syringe. But you can just cut wedges in a watermelon and pour alcohol directly.

If you use a syringe, you will also need a metal knitting needle: she needs to make the initial punctures, otherwise the hollow needle of the syringe will instantly clog up with a watermelon peel.

Choose a ripe watermelon, which, when tapped, responds with a characteristic sound, indicating that there is a cavity in it in the middle. It is to her that your puncture should lead: filling it with a portion of brandy, you need to put the watermelon for “ripening”.

So, we pierce the watermelon with a needle in the tail area, insert the needle of the syringe filled with cognac and make several injections. It is better if the hole is one: with several there is a risk that cognac can spill out. Gradually fill the cavity with brandy, from time to time taking out the needle and letting the air out. The amount of alcohol that a watermelon can absorb should be calculated as follows: 50 ml per 1 kg.

After the entire volume has successfully transferred into a watermelon, close the hole. Now leave the watermelon in a cool place for at least 8 hours. Then cut and start the party.
