Watermelon Cocktail Keg – As Seen in Food Network Magazine!

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009 by Hannah

When The Food Network contacted us a little while back about our Faucet and Shank Kit we weren’t exactly sure what they had up their sleeves… and I can tell you, tapping a watermelon never once crossed our minds!

The innovative brains at The Food Network have done it again, turning something ordinary into extraordinary with a melon, a cocktail recipe and our very own faucet and shank kit.

Watermelon Keg - The Food Network Magazine

Here’s the recipe our friends at The Food Network suggest for the perfect cocktail keg, adapted from The Bubbly Bar, a new cocktail book by Clarkson Potter.

Watermelon Sours in a Melon Keg
(makes 10-12 drinks)

4 cups watermelon chunks, pureed
4 oz Alizé Red Passion, or any other fruit-flavored liqueur
8 oz gin
2 cups sour mix
Sparkling rosé
Lime slices, for garnish
Watermelon, to turn into a keg

Prepare your watermelon by cutting a lid from the top and scooping out the fruit (use 4 cups of the fruit later for your watermelon puree). Drill a small hole near the bottom of the melon, then use a knife to widen the hole until it’s just slightly smaller than the keg shank. Attach the shank and faucet and you’re ready to add your cocktail.

After pureeing 4 cups of watermelon chunks, strain. Stir in your fruit-flavored liqueur, gin and sour mix. Chill. Add sparkling rosé before serving. Garnish with lime slice and enjoy!

Thanks to the fantastic minds at The Food Network for inventing such a fun and different way to tap into your melon.

Cheers!
