This booze soaked fruit is an adults-only dessert!
  • 1 medium watermelon, cut into 1" cubes
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • ½ cup vodka
  • 6 Tbsp GF fruity liqueur (ie. pomegranate, crème de cassis, melon)
  • ¼ cup fresh mint, chopped
Candied Pecans:
  • ½ cup pecans
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 Tbsp vegetable oil
  1. In a large bowl mix lemon and sugar together until dissolved. Add in alcohol, then watermelon cubes. Light toss, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour (anything longer than 2 hrs and the melon will soak up too much alcohol).
  2. To make candied pecans; in a skillet toast pecans until just before browned. Add oil and sugar, and stir continuously until sugar is dissolved (about 3-5 minutes). Let cool.
  3. To assemble; drain watermelon and put into serving dishes. Top with mint and pecans.
