Our Watermelon Keg is a refreshing and wildly fun means to cool off this summer! Guests and hosts alike will love this watermelony creation with a spigot. It’s perfect for any outdoor cookout or pool party!
What you’ll need for the keg:
- Seedless watermelon (any size you want)
- Sharp knife
- Large Bowl
- Apple Corer or knife
- ¾ inch faucet
Step 1: Pick out a ripe watermelon and make sure it has a flat base, enabling it to stand up on its own. If not, use a knife to trim a thin slice off the bottom of the watermelon.
Step 2: Cut off the top of the watermelon, jack-o’-lantern style, and use a spoon to scoop out the fruit and place fruit in a large bowl. Pour the excess juice into the bowl.
Step 3: Use an apple corer or a knife to drill a small hole into the watermelon. Make the hole about 4 inches from the bottom of the watermelon. Also make sure the hole is small enough to snugly fit the faucet, which will prevent the drink from leaking.
Step 4: Screw in the faucet. To test the flow, fill the watermelon with water and check for any leaks. If there are problems, add an O-ring or PVC faucet adapter.
Step 5: Add Sparkler Lemonade, or your beverage of choice, to watermelon, serve and enjoy! Make sure to double the drink recipe when filling keg made with a large watermelon.
