With summer winding down, the only thing better than a glass of our frosty minty melon breeze drink is one that’s tapped from this adorable DIY watermelon keg! Watch the video below to learn how.

- 10 lb. seedless watermelon
- Sharp knife
- Big spoon
- Power drill
- 3/4 inch hose bibb threaded faucet
- O-ring (that fits the back of the faucet)
- Drink-dispenser stand
Cut a hole at the top of your watermelon, jack o’ lantern style. Using a large spoon, scoop out the flesh of the watermelon and put some directly into your blender. Put the rest in a large bowl, and set aside.
Drill a hole about 4 inches from the bottom of your watermelon, using a knife to slightly widen the hole so it’s just slightly smaller than your faucet.
Place your O-ring on the back of your faucet and gently screw the faucet into the hole. Next, test your keg by filling it with water and using the faucet. NOTE: Our keg worked great with just the O-ring and faucet, but if you’re having trouble with the flow, we recommend adding an additional PVC faucet adapter that will screw into the back of the spout.
