Watermelon Cocktail

Ingredients:

1 large watermelon

2 large oranges, juiced and zested

2 liters lemon lime soda, as needed

2 cups Raspberry flavored Vodka

Instructions:

  1. Stand the watermelon upright, and lop off a small portion of the top to make a base, then flip the melon over so it can sit on its flat side.
  2. Cut a zigzag patter around the rounded top of the melon so it comes off as one piece.
  3. Begin to scoop out melon flesh and place in a separate container, make sure to leave at least three inches from the base as you get to the bottom, store empty melon shell in the fridge with the top.
  4. Blend the melon flesh in a blender and pass through a strainer saving the juice.
  5. Combine with orange juice, zest and vodka and allow sitting for at least 30 min in the fridge.
  6. Stir juice once and return to melon shell and fill up the remaining space with soda and, then serve.
Additional Thoughts:
* The longer you allow the juice to sit in the melon, the more concentrated the melon flavor becomes.
* Using a ice cream scoop is much more effective when you are scooping out the melon.
