Watermelon punch, whether it’s prepared with or without alcohol, is such a refreshing, easy, and delicious summer treat.

Watermelon Keg Tap

This watermelon keg tap kit makes serving your watermelon punch *EXTRA* fun! It’s affordable, easy to use, and can work on other things like a pumpkin. It’s a great way to use every part of your beautiful watermelon, plus it makes a lovely addition to any party table. But however you serve your watermelon punch, you’re going to love these recipes.

Chill All The Ingredients

We recommend that you chill the watermelon and all ingredients: juice, alcohol, etc. before you mix up the punch. That way, once your beverage is ready, everything is cold and ready to serve.

Carve Out Your Watermelon

Gather Your Supplies:

Cut a small slice off the bottom of your watermelon so it will sit level on a flat surface. Carve a “lid” off the top, & set it aside. Scoop out the flesh of the watermelon, leaving the rind intact. Don’t scoop too close to the bottom. Put the watermelon flesh in a bowl. Puree it with the immersion blender. If your watermelon has seeds, strain them out. Use the corer that comes with the watermelon tap kit to make a hole about 3″ from the base of the watermelon. Insert the tap, and secure with the washer on the inside of the watermelon. Now your hollowed-out watermelon is ready to be used as a keg for dispensing punch!
