diy wedding drinks make your own watermelon keg

My husband and I spent the morning digging in the dirt. We’re making raised beds in our backyard to plant veggies and berry bushes. Hauling wheelbarrow after wheelbarrow of topsoil can cause a sudden craving for watermelon. Thankfully, I had some on hand.

Watermelon is fruit of the gods. There is nothing better than a cool piece of sweet watermelon after hours of manual, outdoor labour. Nothing better, except maybe a cold drink, served right out of a fresh watermelon!

When I stumbled on this DIY watermelon keg tutorial on evite.com, I couldn’t help but think that this would be perfect for an outdoor wedding - or any outdoor party for that matter!

Here’s what you need:

  • 10-pound seedless watermelon
  • Sharp knife
  • Big spoon
  • Big bowl
  • Drill with a 1/2-inch drill bit
  • 3/4-inch ball-valve faucet with a handle that’s easy to turn with one hand
  • PVC-to-faucet adapter that will screw into the back of the faucet
  • Rubber O-ring that fits the back of the faucet
  • Blender
  • Sieve
  • Pitcher
  • 1 1/2 cups rum
  • 4 limes

The project takes about 90 mins and costs $20 (not including alcohol).

Read the full tutorial to make your own watermelon keg.

Or you can learn to make Lemon-Mint Vodka Spiked Watermelon over here. Sounds dangerous. ;)
