YUMMY: Adult Watermelon Pops
This week’s YUMMY recipe : ADULT Watermelon Pops with Raspberry liqueur and vanilla tweak a summer party staple that everyone will want to serve at your next adult gathering! And the bonus? You’ll have some liquid left over from soaking the melon—we’ve heard it makes for a good addition to cocktails…of course I’m sure you know that all ready.
Total Time: 35 mins, plus freezing time
Active Time: 5 mins
Makes: 6 to 8 servings
1/2 cup vodka
1/4 cup Chambord or other raspberry-flavored liqueur
1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise and scraped, seeds reserved
1 (7-pound) seedless watermelon, peeled, large dice (about 12 cups)
- Combine vodka, Chambord, and vanilla seeds in a large bowl. Add watermelon and toss to coat in liquors. Set aside and let soak at room temperature, mixing occasionally, until the liquor flavor has saturated the melon, about 30 minutes.
- Drain off the vodka mixture (reserve for cocktails as desired) and arrange the watermelon in a single layer on a baking sheet. Place in the freezer until frozen, about 4 hours. Serve with toothpicks.
