The equation for party-perfect, summer-tastic cocktail awesomeness:
Watermelon + Drill + Tap
DIY this drink dispenser to amp up the good times (and impress your pals) at your next shindig — it’s surprisingly simple, we swear!
Cut the top off of your watermelon, jack-o-lantern-style.
Scoop out all the sweet watermelon inside.
Keep scoopin’ till you’ve emptied as much of the melon as possible. If you’re making the delish drink recipe at the bottom of this post, place the watermelon you’ve scooped in a bowl for later use.
Start drilling where you’ll place your tap (which should be near the bottom).
Step 4 (if necessary)
If your drill bit isn’t as big as your tap’s spout, then continue drilling holes to expand the circumference.
Once you’ve created an opening large enough, insert the tap.
Now make a delightful drink, pour it into the melon dispenser, and enjoy the fruits of your labor!
Watermelon Mint Punch Recipe
14 cups watermelon, cut into chunks, seeds removed
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
1 cup lime juice
1/2 cup simple syrup
4-5 cups vodka (or gin, if you prefer)
1 bottle prosecco
Add watermelon and mint to blender and puree. Once combined, strain to remove any large chunks. Then, combine the watermelon and mint puree with remaining ingredients. Mix, pour into your watermelon drink dispenser, and enjoy!
