OLD BAY®️ VODKA Boozy Melon Balls
OLD BAY®️ and melon are an absolutely Delicious flavor combination, yes, Delicious with a capital D! The two together make a perfect mix of sweet with a hint of mild spice flavor. Truly, this is a flavor match made in heaven! If you haven’t tried them together, do yourself a favor and give it a go!

From watermelon to cantaloupe, honeydew, and more, melons are a refreshing treat during the summer. Melon balls are great for the 21-and-over crowd and mix well with our award-winning OLD BAY®️ VODKA!

How can you make them? Simply slide your fruit of choice in half, and remove the seeds. Then, use a melon baller to scoop out the melons in a shallow container with a lid. Add in your OLD BAY®️ VODKA, toss the fruit and arrange so that as many melon balls are submerged in the liquid, then cover and let them chill in the fridge for 2-3 hours!

Don’t let that beautifully infused OLD BAY®️ VODKA juice go to waste! The leftover juice leaves a delicious masterpiece, perfect for a balanced fruity shot. Or, use the infused vodka for your favorite cocktail of choice!

Or, if you’re not a huge “melon” person, infuse any of your favorite fruit with OLD BAY®️ VODKA! From pineapples to strawberries, peaches, mangos, oranges, and much more, OLD BAY®️ VODKA will give your fruit treat an extra kick!

Pro Tip: Speaking of fruit, did you know that our Margarita Mixes are absolutely delicious in fruit salad? Choose from our GEORGE’S® Strawberry Margarita-Daiquiri Mix and our GEORGE’S® Lime Margarita Mix, and splash in your fruit salad for the ultimate flavor addition!
