  • 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.

    So - yumm-o!!! The only change - we froze the wedges (after all the soaking) & blended them up w/ Prosecco - a new take on a Bellini!!!
