Once your watermelon keg is complete, set it on the stand of a drink dispenser – if it’s wobbly, cut a thin slice from the bottom of the melon to even it out. Fill the keg with our delicious Minty Melon Breeze and serve with minted ice cubes.

Tools & Ingredients

10 lb. seedless watermelon

Sharp knife

Big Spoon


Power Drill

3/4-inch hose bibb threaded faucet and 0-ring (that fits on the back of the faucet). Or try this

Drink-dispenser stand


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
