Watermelon infused Vodka

 

Watermelon

Vodka

 

Add watermelon pieces to airtight container.  I used a canning jar.

Pour vodka over watermelon.

Store in refrigerator for at least 2 weeks.  The longer it sits the more flavorful it becomes.

 

This drink is helping me hang onto summer.  I’m just not ready to let it go.  Luckily I live in Southern California and the warm weather will continue for the next few months so I can sip a few more summer drinks.
