Watermelon Infused Vodka Recipe D.I.Y.

Hey Guys and Gals, are you Looking for an awesome Watermelon Infused Vodka? You now have no reason to look any further! You have just found what you have been looking for, this is a recipe for the most awesome tasting Watermelon Infused Vodka in the world.


I am listing the simplest utensils that you can use, the ones mom should have already have in the kitchen.
– A large glass jar (I used a 3 liter jar) 
 large plastic bowl
– measuring cups (liquid and dry)
– metal strainer
– cheesecloth
– saucepan
– small funnel
– glass bottles, or storage containers, for the final product, you can either use the glass Jar you used before, or just buy a second one. 

Notes on Utensils:

Avoid plastic as much as possible when working with strong alcohol. Glass is always preferable.


  • 2 cup’s of vodka
  • 2 cup’s pureed watermelon ( no seeds )
  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar


Make pureed watermelon, with either a seedless watermelon or by removing the seeds and rind from about 1/4 of a medium watermelon.   

Chop up the watermelon so that you can stick the piece’s in to the blender.

Pour the melon and sugar into the blender and blend for 15 seconds or so, or until the sugar has dissolved.  

Pour the watermelon puree into a container with a lid, add the vodka, and cover.  

Store at room temperature for a week.  

Straining, Filtering, and Drinking Your Watermelon Infused Vodka

After the steeping time is over. Carefully strain the liquid through several layers of cheesecloth. It helps to moisten the cheesecloth first so the liquid permeates more smoothly.

Once you get to the point of straining out the pulp and rind, gently wring the cheesecloth to extract all of the liquid and juice.

If you still need to you can strain your Watermelon liqueur one more time through a coffee strainer. When you are done straining, you can discard all of the rind, pulp and any spices.

Return the liquid to the jar, for best taste let your A Watermelon Liqueur age for another month in a cool dry place.

Congratulations On Your Watermelon Infused Vodka

You now need a bottle, and a label, that is cool enough to compliment your hard work. Honestly if it looks good people will rave about it. If you put it into a cheap bottle people will make fun of you.
