    Because Drinking Out Of Cups is so 2006.

    1. Make a watermelon keg.

    Full instructions here.

    2. Use the flesh you scooped out for the keg to make boozy punch.

    7. Fill your pineapple cup with a super fancy piña colada.

    8. Or, use it to make a very strong drink look fruity and innocent.

    Adding "a few glugs of coconut rum" can mean whatever you want it to mean.

    Also, if you want something truly killer, this Tiger Shark drink is 60% booze, and part of that is overproof rum.

    9. If you really want to go nuts, fill your pineapple with something blue.

    12. Fill a coconut with a blend of avocado and coconut water for a healthy post-work out drink.

    13. Make really great gimlets in cucumber shot glasses.

    17. Make chocolate covered strawberries even better with booze.

    Because there are many ways to stuff a strawberry, but fruit, booze and chocolate is the holiest trinity.

    18. And, when in doubt, just make Jell-O shots.

    19. Fill apples with butterscotch schnapps-flavored Jell-O for extreme deliciousness.

    After you slice these, you need to consume them quickly to prevent the apples from browning. Shouldn't be a problem.

    Recipe and instructions: Caramel Apple Jell-O Shots

    20. Limes and red Jell-O make for perfect mini watermelon shots.

    Bonus points if you sprinkle them with black sea salt.
