Summer is here and is my house so are these partially frozen, sweet melons balls lightly enhanced with pineapple juice, triple sec and raspberry vodka....I don't know too many parties or gatherings where drunken melon balls WOULDN'T be welcomed! These never last long at my cookouts , diva parties or in my own refrigerator. They are just that fun and refreshing to eat. And call me crazy but I think melons taste better when they are in cute little ball form. Feel free to use your favorite fruity alcohol combinations to "spike" these melon balls with.
