Anyone inject alcohol into fruit?

I like to put a little Peach Vodka into oranges and peaches and we serve them at the summer get-togethers.

In college we used to fill a watermellon with booze, but I have't done anything like that in years.

Your oranges sound great!

peaches and oranges sound good, but it must be tough to get it into the peach. don't you need a good rind of some kind?

we used to do the vodka in a watermelon thing too. and canteloupes, and honeydews.

gotta get your daily serving of fruit, and alcohol.

Erik, what a great idea! Do you inject ahead of time and let the fruit "marinate?"

Yes, Callie.
Bucky, the peaches are done with care, when they are not totally ripe, and the rind is still kind of hard.
Only a few drops of vodka.

I inject a good Tequila into large fresh strawberries and then dip them into chocolate. Then refrigerate for an hour or so. I never seem to have any left to bring home....
