Watermelon is in season and there’s no other way to celebrate than with a watermelon cocktail from a watermelon keg. Try this fun and easy DIY project for your next poolside or rooftop adventure. Not only are watermelon kegs clever, they look great and are a total hit with any crowd.
Lay your melon on its side. Even off the bottom by cutting a flat surface for the melon to stand upright on its own. Be careful not to cut too deep into the rind.
Cut out a circular top like you would a pumpkin and scoop out the melon with a large spoon or your hands. Be careful not to hit the bottom.
Cut a small hole 2/3 of the way down and insert your drink spout. Be sure to secure it from the inside.
The perfect cocktail for entertaining on warm summer days. The light and refreshing taste of watermelon is perfectly balanced with a kick of tart lime-juice. Cheers!

• 2 cups of vodka
