while thumbing through my McCalls CookBook from 1963, i found this totally amusing recipe for spiked water melon. apparently back then it was called 'water melon cha cha cha' and was totally appropriate for a summer cocktail party.  {recipe came with amusing drawing but i can't get to the scanner right now}

here is the recipe, word for word.

Watermelon Cha-Cha-Cha
13 lb. watermelon
1c light rum

1. cut pulg in center of melon (plug should be 2 1/2 inches square and about 3 inches deep). pour in rum
2. trim pink flesh from plug, leaving rind about 1/2 inch thick; replace
3. place melon in refigerator, plug side up, and chill for 6 to 8 hours, or until rum flavor permeates melon
4. cut in wedges

My parents always bought the frozen grapes/melon/whatever fruit that comes in bags and would put it into a ziplock with rum and let it soak in the fridge over night. always a great finger food.

Cinnamon and cherries being  two of my favourite foods/flavours, I sure like the sound of this. Are they very alchaholic, as in, how many would you eat before you began to feel a little funny? I am 12 after all.... Roll Eyes
