    Bourbon and Fruit

    I've used bourbon to macerate varioius fruits. (OK, Soak. Why use a big word when a diminutive one will work).
    I've not really soaked a lot of melon though.
    Recently, I soaked some canteloupe chunks in AAA. What a pleasant surprise. The canteloupe took on the bourbon and neutralized the alcohol bite.
    It might have been the circumtances or the smoothness of the AAA.

    I did a second batch and Voile', same results.

    I made a canteloupe smoothie with bourbon, as a cocktail and its very good.

    Anyone else experimenting with melons and bourbon?

    When it comes to melons and/or bourbon, I prefer a double.

    Those must be very small chunks to soak in AAA...must be a training batch.

    "Smoothness if the AAA"...yup, like nothing is there at all, barely a bump.

    Well Ed, since your expecting a mammarian response "whose melons are you macerating in bourbon, the Patty's? "

    The Cantaloupe sounds yummy - I'll give it a shot.

    Dried or fresh Apricots?

    No, the peaches were Patty's.

    I got the canteloupes from a "stand" in Hunt's Point.

    I thought they were out of season.

    Go Figger.
