Cooking with Sake: Watermelon Macedonia

This is a dessert for adults, so let’s keep it a secret from children!
Although a macedonia is not often made with watermelon, it actually is a great way to enjoy it. Using sake adds mildness and makes the dessert flavorful.

The green mint leaves topped on red watermelon make it look colorful and refreshing.
Adults also deserve to have fun once in a while, right?
For children and non-drinkers, replace the rum with soda and sake with nikiri-shu.
