I don't know who Matt is, but this is Awesome! Cooking time is for 2 week chill in the refrigerator.
- Cut all pineapple and fruit so no rind of any kind is left behind.
- Wash and rewash the watermelon, pineapple, and strawberries.
- Cut the strawberries into halves, the pineapple and watermelon into bigger than a bite-sized pieces.
- Layer a"sun tea" jar (preferably with spigot at bottom) with one fruit at a time.
- Start with strawberry or watermelon, as they are more fragrant and will gather more taste at the bottom, where the vodka exits the container.
- Fill container to top with fruit.
- Pour vodka over fruit until covered.
- Screw on top and let sit minimum 2 weeks in refrigerator.
- To serve, mix 3 parts infusion with one part 7-Up (diet or regular) in a martini glass and serve with small piece of fruit as garnish.
Made this (3 weeks prior) for a Christmas party and everyone loved it. A few notes: 1 - after about 2 weeks the strawberries turned completely white, so take that into consideration (we fished ours out), 2 - we felt 7-up was a little too sweet and overpowered the subtle fruitiness. We thought ginger ale was a much better companion but since this will be in your frig for at least a few weeks prior to your party, I say experiment, 3 - our fruit was tooooo saturated to eat. I put a melonball in one of the martini glasses and my guest stated it was like eating fire. Looking back maybe 3 wk was just too long??? It still tasted great, I would make it again and thanks for posting!
This was SO good and it did the trick SO well.I made this for my B-Day, well,two weeks before FOR my B-Day. I'm not a big drinker. This would taste so good on a hot day. Thanks!
Wow! Was this stuff good. I broke this out for company this last weekend. We made vodka martinis and cosmopolotians, as well as the 7-Up drink. Everyone love it--the fruit added so much flavor. We went through half of it. The rest I'm saving for Cinco de Mayo. Thanks for posting.
