This recipe is from the September 1989 issue of Gourmet Magazine. This picnic treat for grown-ups can be made 2 days in advance.
- Ready In:
- Stand the watermelon on end in a bowl, stem end up, and cut a 3 inch diameter plug out around the stem like a Jack-o'-lantern lid. Remove the plug, scoop out about 2 inches of flesh, and pour out any excess liquid. With a long skewer pierce the flesh inside to the bottom in all directions without penetrating the rind and pour out any excess liquid.
- Pour equal amounts of peach schnapps and vodka into the watermelon gradually until it cannot absorb any more and replace the plug.
- Refrigerate watermelon on its end, plug end up, for at least 15 hours and up to 2 days.
- Serve the watermelon cut into wedges.
