This week's vodka infusion: cantaloupe

The Mad Scienticians are experimenting with cantaloupe-infused vodka this week. Though I am unsure of what this vodka will go well with, I am excited about this experiment; cantaloupe is my favorite fruit of all time.

To create this infusion, we cut half a cantaloupe into wedges, each wedge comprising one-eighth of the fruit. Then we gutted the seeds from each wedge, sliced the wedges into chunks, and cut the rind off each chunk.

We only used three of these wedges; I ate the fourth, and am saving the other half for Saturday's breakfast. Yum.

We suspect that this will require a long infusion, but we will test it in a week and see how far it gets.

Tonight, we will be subjecting our grape vodka to its final test, for better or for worse. Stay tuned for the results!

I would think it wouldn't take too long to infuse properly. Then again, I'm not a trained scientician, so I can't make those judgements.

For the record, this weekend I am attempting to being my own experiment: Watermelon infused vodka. You guys are an inspiration!

Let us know how it turns out. Watermelon is another infusion we've been wanting to try at some point.

Of course, our friend the Vodka God carried out a similar experiment once, though it was the other way around.

You know, canteloupe vodka would be awesome in a Sex on the Beach.

Depending how girly-drink you're feeling, of course.

Cantaloupe is a stupid fruit to like; it tastes awful.

You should enjoy a flavourful LYCHEE fruit sometime.
