I so suck at keeping up with this blog. Now with carpal tunnel it makes it even harder to keep up with. So if you actually read my blog, I am sorry that I have been slacking, I really am going to try harder to keep this one up as well as I do my other blog.
This is an unusual fruit salad to say the least. I like to serve it at brunch. Most people are drinking mimosas and so they don’t seem to care that the melons are drunk, because they are a little tipsy themselves.
Yes, you do taste the vodka but not in a oh my God I so taste the vodka kind of way.
Drunken Melon and Raspberry Salad
½ cup orange flavored vodka
½ cup orange juice
1 TBSP sugar
1 small ripe honey dew melon, peeled, seeded and balled (if you don’t own a melon baller just cut into bite size pieces)
1 TBSP finely minced fresh mint
½ cup fresh raspberries
In a large bowl, whisk together the vodka, orange juice, and sugar.
Add the melon and the mint and use a spatula to combine the ingredients.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set aside at room temperature for 1 hour.
Fold berries in at last minute when ready to assemble.
