The point of using vodka or everclear is that the flavor sort of dissapears into the fruit. stronger flavord liquor like rum or whiskey would overwhelm the watermelon I think.....

This trick works especially good if you make melon balls with it... great little refreshing poppable shots YUM
Would it slightly freeze? You could make one of those thingy's you scrape with a spoon. Like a slushy.....can't think of the name.

Jeekinz - I think if you added a little regular liquid of some sort it would be possible. I make a bourbon slush, that uses frozen orange juice, tea, and bourbon. I think there are a few more ingredients in it, but I don't remember off the top of my head.

Are you referring to sorbet?

Oh, I love granita's! I always make them in the summer with white wine.
yuuuuuuuummmmmmmmm

Had no idea about the mellon. To get an idea about how well the flavours fit do you think I can make mellon ball and have them sit in various mixtures to get the same effect? Would the mellon balls absorb the liquor?

I've also heard of people putting the melon (with the vodka inside) into the freezer, then taking it out a week later :-)

Yeah the watermelon absorbs the vodka very well. Sometimes we put melon liqueur in it along with the vodka so it is more Melon tasting. Very yummy.
