DIRECTIONS

  • Place watermelon on its side and make vertical slices of your desired thickness.
  • Cut these slices into quarters and stack to fit in a large non-reactive bowl.
  • In separate bowl, mix the rum and citrus beverage (we used Mango Tampico and Bacardi Superior for irony's sake).
  • Pour this mixture over the watermelon slices, making sure that all the slices are immersed/covered.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and put it in the fridge overnight.
  • Serve the slices on a plate (keep in mind that they will leak the mixture as they warm, so cover them if you'll be traveling with the plate to avoid spillage).
