Throwing a party and lacking a proper punch bowl? Well you’re in luck. All you need is a basic spigot kit and a good cocktail recipe to turn a watermelon into the life of any summer barbecue.
– 1 watermelon
– 1 spigot kit
It’s probably good to find a watermelon that can stand up on it’s own. This isn’t essential as you can use a bowl as a stand, but it helps.
Cut off the top of the watermelon. This will serve as your lid.
Now it’s time to start scooping!
Scoop all the watermelon out and set aside in a bowl. Pour out any excess liquid after you’re done scooping.
Grab your spigot! Hold it up to the watermelon to measure the size hole you’ll need. Use a knife to ut a hole that’s slightly smaller than the spigot and then press it into your watermelon to test the size. Next, add a rubber ring. Place the spigot in and fasten it with a metal ring on the other side. Most of these pieces should come in a standard spigot kit, but any employee at a hardware store will know what you need. Test your new drink dispenser by filling it with water.
You can now fill it up with any cocktail of your choice!
