A "twist" on spiked watermelon. This is made with wine instead of 100-proof! Use an off-dry, unoaked white riesling which is a perfect match for sweet melon. Try Rosemount Estate’s yummy traminer/riesling blend, available in most stores.

Directions

  1. Cut a hole in a ripe watermelon and insert a funnel.
  2. Pour in as much wine as possible, and let it sit in the fridge, adding more wine every three to four hours as it’s slowly absorbed. (A 10-pound melon can soak up one standard bottle overnight.)
  3. Slice the watermelon for a refreshing chilled party nosh, or freeze the flesh as a terrific base for blender drinks.
