Watermelons: Natures Keg. Still pumping your watermelons full of rum?

Watermelons: Natures Keg

What is this, summer camp? It’s time to grow up and start converting your watermelons into kegs. The instructions for the Watermelon Keg come from none other than the National Watermelon Promotion Board—which surprisingly is an actual thing. Essentially you slice off a thin layer from the bottom end, slice open the top, scoop out the meat (or liquefy with booze), and jam a spigot in the front.

Presto! Materials Instructions Wash the watermelon under cool running water and pat dry.On a cutting board, place the watermelon on its side and cut off 1/4”-1/2” from both ends, being careful not to cut too deep into the white part of the rind. 15 Minute Creamy Avocado Pasta. Oh…my….gosh.

In fact, it is the drink of choice. We call it the ‘Lovett’ drink, after Mother Lovett. Up until she passed away, she was enjoying her bourbon every night. I remember taking sips out of Mother Lovett’s bourbon concoctions when I was younger. Luckily, Mail Pouch tobacco has not grown on me, or any of us, considering my grandpa gave my cousin a nice little ‘taster’ where she was 5 years old. It must be fun to be a grandparent?
