How to Make a Watermelon Keg
Follow our video’s easy, step-by-step instructions and learn how to transform a ripe watermelon into a summer party centerpiece that’s sure to spark some juicy conversation. We’ll show you everything you need to know about tapping a DIY watermelon keg that dispenses refreshing and boozy watermelon punch.
Wondering where to get the spigot? You can actually easily order a whole watermelon keg tapping kit online that comes with everything you need. But if you already have a beverage dispensing jar, you can also just unscrew the spigot and use it for your watermelon keg, then screw it back on when you’re done. Or look for a replacement spigot at your local home supplies store.
Once you’ve got the supplies, turning your watermelon into a keg is actually super simple — if you’ve ever carved a jack-o-lantern, you can make a watermelon keg. We mixed the juicy chunks of fresh watermelon with vodka, fresh mint, and a little bit of sugar to make a delicious watermelon punch, but you could fill yours with a family-friendly watermelon lemonade or any other drink.
Whether you bring out the drunken watermelon at a pool party, backyard cookout, or tailgating party, everyone will definitely enjoy the fruits of your labor.
