Here's opening day and I suppose you college kids and the rest of us have some wings in the freezer and beer in the cupboard ready to get chilled, but why does the NFL have to be the same as always. The football game itself will bring some sense of regularity and tradition to your brain: so in the spirit of good partying I found a recipe that will make your friends come back again and chill out properly on upcoming game day, opening day. Why does Sunday, game day have to be boring day?
Your other refreshments will be fine or you can just replace the beer with this recipe: it's alcohol spiked watermelon...the recipe is simple, but it's urgent that you act now. You need three days prior to game time to prepare the watermelon.
Spiked Watermelon Recipe
Here's what you need...you need to ACT NOW!
- A ten pound watermelon
- 3 cups of alcohol...rum or vodka (flavored if you wish)
- fresh mint
- an apple corer
- some plastic wrap
THREE DAYS prior to party time remove your already-chilled and rinsed watermelon from the frig and put a hole or two on the long side, both of them on the same side. Save the plugs because they'll keep the moisture in. With a metal skewer pierce the innards to aid the absorption. The absorption is slow so add a portion of the vodka, perhaps half a cup at a time through a funnel two or three times a day until you've used up your three cups. After adding alcohol replace the plugs and cover with plastic wrap and put back in frig.
Come game time take out your watermelon and slice it as usual...add some chopped fresh mint according to your taste. It'll become a tradition quickly for you and your friends!
