Mine wasnt sweet at all

Very disappointed. Didnt ripen but started going brown at one end so I cut it. Inside it was dry, flesh had a hard texture and was not at all sweet. Had to throw it all away.

Juicy but firm. Not sure if this had ripened enough. The flavour was refreshing and sweet.

Variation You can use any kind of melon, but always try and include watermelon, which will absorb the vodka. Cook's Notes Use melons that are only just ripe - they'll still have a bit of bite to them.
