6 cups cubed watermelon, seeds removed

1 Tbsp gin

1/2 tsp minced fresh mint

1 cup flour

2 Tbsp sugar

2 tsp baking powder

pinch of salt

3 Tbsp unsalted butter

1/2 cup milk

Cut watermelon into cubes, remove seeds and bake covered at 350F for approximately 30 minutes. Remove from oven and carefully drain liquid until there is about 1 cup remaining. Return to oven uncovered and bake approximately 20 minutes until fruit is reduced in volume by about half. Drain again if necessary, leaving about 1 cup of liquid. Turn oven temperature up to 400F. Mix dry ingredients of cobbler batter, cut in cold cubes of butter then stir in milk until just combined. Mince mint and add to fruit mixture along with gin. Bake uncovered for 30-35 minutes until lightly browned and juice is bubbling around the edges.
