Important Information !!!!!

TSA Alcoholic Beverages Regulation

Travelers may now carry through security checkpoints travel-size toiletries (3 ounces or less) that fit comfortably in ONE, QUART-SIZE, clear plastic, zip-top bag.

*According to the FAA’s Federal Aviation Regulations, Sec. 121.575, “no person may drink any alcoholic beverage aboard an aircraft unless the certificate holder operating the aircraft has served that beverage to him.” In other words, you can’t drink it unless a flight attendant serves it to you.

You could be fined anywhere from $3,000-$5,000for violating federal law if you decide to start mixing up your own cocktails, so it might be a good idea to just pay for your own drinks. Better yet, ask the flight attendant to make it for you!

Mixing Instructions:

Lay the melon on its side and make a circular cut in the rind as big as the diameter of the neck of the liquor bottle.  Remove plug, set aside.  With a swift (and accurate) move, insert the neck of the bottle into the watermelon hole.  Press the bottle into the watermelon as firmly as possible.  The bottle should drain slightly... you will need to let it sit a while, perhaps overnight.  After the watermelon has absorbed as much of the liquor as it can, remove the bottle.  Replace the plug and cover it with duct tape to make sure the flavor can sink in.  Refrigerate or place in a cooler with ice... Serve cold and sliced!
