The Watermelon Keg
We know this looks crazy, but we couldn't resist making it. Just as the weather is heating up, we thought a watermelon keg would be the perfect drink dispenser for our favorite melon flavor. Fill it up with yummy watermelon pieces and a batched cocktail (or mocktail for the kiddos)!
Step 1: Gear up
Assemble your tools. You'll need a serrated knife, melon baller and a tap. We liked this PROfeshional Melon Tap from Amazon. Oh yeah, you'll also need a watermelon! Pick a medium sized ripe one.
Step 2: Give it feet
Screw in the PROfeshional Melon Tap feet. This will help keep the melon stabilized for the rest of the assembly and while serving.
Step 3: Shave and a haircut
Cut the top off your watermelon. You'll want a hole large enough for you to use a melon baller to scoop the insides out.
Step 3: Scoop away
Scoop out the yummy balls of watermelon and set them aside. (Pro Tip- freeze the watermelon balls and place in your batched drink. This will keep em chilled and they won't get diluted)
Step 4: Tap that
Screw in the tap about 3/4 of the way down the face of the watermelon.
Step 5: Batch it up
You can serve up a delightful Watermelon Soda, Watermelon Agua Fresca or if you want a more adult beverage try a Sunset Melon Margarita. (Note: to serve batched versions of some of these drinks, multiply the ingredients x6)
Step 6: Serve, sip and enjoy
