Directions

  1. Place all ingredients in a high powered blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Strain punch through a fine mesh strainer and pour back into the hollowed out watermelon keg.
  3. Use the reserved cucumber peel for garnish.
  4. Making the Watermelon Keg:
  5. Choose your seedless watermelon, slice off the top to expose the fruit and set the top to the side to use later as a lid.
  6. Slice a thin layer of rind off the bottom of the watermelon to level it out to sit on a flat surface. Do not expose the watermelon flesh on the bottom.
  7. Use an ice cream scoop to remove the flesh and hollow out the watermelon making room for your punch. Put the watermelon flesh in a side bowl for making the punch.
  8. Make a hole using your melon/corer tool and tap your melon keg by attaching the faucet and securing the spigot inside the watermelon.
  9. Pour in your watermelon punch then place the watermelon lid back on top of the melon; set out for service.
