You’ll Need –
1 faucet head from hardware store
1 black marker
1 precision knife
1 ice cream scooper
1 O-ring (optional)
Wigs, hats, mustaches, and any other desired decorations
1.First, make sure to clean your watermelon and the faucet head.
2.Cut off the top of the watermelon.
3.Scoop out the innards of the watermelon with an ice cream scooper or large spoon.
4.Place the innards into a blender. Depending on the size of the blender, you may have to do one half of the innards at a time.
5.Blend the watermelon until it's smooth.
6.Use the precision knife to carve a hole slightly smaller than the size of the faucet head at least 3 inches from the base of the watermelon.
7.Insert the faucet head through the hole. (Use an O-ring to secure the faucet head if the walls of the watermelon are too thin to support it)
8.Use a strainer to pour the watermelon puree back into the watermelon. This will prevent any watermelon pieces from clogging the faucet head. Run a ladle along the inside of the strainer to help the liquid pass through.
9.Once the watermelon has been filled, replace the top of the watermelon.
10.Decorate your watermelon with wigs, mustaches, googly eyes, etc.
11.Turn valve and enjoy your drink!
