works great with one of those flavor injectors as well... works much faster. lol.

Also works in reverse as well... take an old glass liquor bottle and cut up pretty much any kind of fruit (my favorite was always canteloupe) and fill the bottle about 2/3 full, then funnel in some vodka, close the top tightly, and shove it in the freezer. Periodic testing and sampling will give you the right amount of time to keep it in there. Usually a week or does it... then strain out the fruit, and there ya go...flavored vodka

Done it lots of times...and it always works just fine. The reason for the vodka is that you don't change the flavour of the watermelon that way. Would you really want a wine falvoured watermelon?

If that's possible I was thinking that might be nice with a good wine or a wine and rum mixture.

Has anyone ever tried this? Even if you haven't what kind of liquids do you think would work well?
Yes I have tried it, and it is beautiful but very very strong ( for me any way ), But I also loved it with Malibu and also Bacardi, not at the same time though (WHoooo), its a great after dinner refresher, (If u can call it that) gets a lot of people talking.

LOL AMS!!!! Ok, one complaint, my vodka keeps leaking out around the funnel! Do I keep pouring it in until it is all absorbed?

Okay, I am ashamed to admit we didn't notice leakage ... we used straws to prevent that ...
