3. Once drained, stick the open bottle of rum upside down in one of the holes and allow the watermelon ‘to get drunk’ for 24 hours. Refrigerate the melon while the flesh is macerating.

4. To serve, cut the chilled watermelon into slices and eat with your fingers.
I'm buying a watermelon today. To hell with jiggers, at least, for a while! Thanks, PJ

Thanks everyone. I will admit to having a vodka watermelon during the past, but never a rum one...

We had one about a month or two ago for a party here. Somehow the watermelon clashed with the vodka and made the vodka rancid. We even used decent vodka.
Cheers - S

In trinidad, I've heard that they use white rum rum overproof (forrest park) and they do the same method than Papa Jules. They just flame the watermelon before to serve it.

Forrest, i'm sorry, I've done a spelling mistake there. The rum is called Forres Park (you can always add a T on the label if you wish).
It's better known as Puncheon, 75%abv (it's a kind of Wray & Nephew from Trinidad apart that it's 12% abv extra charged and only column distilled i think)...

I love the fact our bottle of Forres Park has "Not less than 75% abv" on it.

I'd love to find out what it was 'not more than'! In Trinidad they have a saying. "Ware the Puncheon"..... with good reason...

Default The perfect Zombie

Ratios for beginners…where (and when) to begin. Methinks, Linda, you reference beginning mixologists while I ponder ratios for the novice consumer; and reminisce of my introduction to the cane. It was a neighborhood bar known for generous portions and slipshod concoctions and the barman suggested the zombie to this eighteen year-old newbie (me). “His secret recipe” which he would share with every passerby. It became my staple for many months.

Of course I now know he had omitted several ingredients from the original 1930’s Beachcombers’ recipe yet … with fondness I remember - and with naпvetй I adored - his version. I have yet to find anything to compare.

a shot of dark rum
a shot of light rum
a shot of 151 rum
and a shot of apricot brandy
(that it!) Over ice, in a very tall glass, with a straw

Ratio 1:OMG
