Create your very own watermelon keg with our deluxe tap kit.


    Create your own watermelon keg with our deluxe watermelon tap kit. Just cut open a watermelon, hollow out the inside and cut a hole to attach the shank and faucet to. Fill the melon with your beverage of choice and pour away.

    The cylindrical shank and the faucet included in the watermelon keg kit are made of sturdy chrome-plated brass. This kit can also be used to tap a pumpkin for Halloween parties.


    Sure, you know that a Watermelon Keg will be a hit at your party. But you’re feeling a little afraid that assembling something as cool as a watermelon cocktail keg must be difficult. Nope. In just four short steps, you’ll turn an ordinary watermelon into a drink dispenser dream come true.

    • Watermelon Tap - Step 1

      1. Slice

      Cut enough off of one end of the watermelon to create a flat base. Cut a hole around the end and pull off the rind.

      2. Scoop

      Reach into the watermelon and scoop out the fruit. Set aside in a bowl to be used later.

    • wm-step3

      3. Insert

      Use the Coring Tool (or a knife) to cut a shank-sized hole towards the bottom of the melon. Insert the shank and then attach the faucet.

    • wm-step4

      4. Fill

      Fill up your Watermelon Keg with a fruity cocktail of your choice. Pull on the tap handle to dispense and enjoy!

    Everyone needs a Melon Tap
    Easy to use and a sure crowd pleaser. Hardest part is clearing out the melon. How many times have you been to a party with a tapped watermelon? Exactly! Not enough. Buy it.

    I chose this because it was advertised in Food Network Magazine some time ago with a cool recipe for watermelon sours using the watermelon as the keg. I occasionally host family celebrations and my drink recipes are often the highlight of the event!

    What liquid do you put in the watermelon?
    Chris M on May 22, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Only used it once. I think we put in vodka and pureed watermelon. I think any punch, 7-Up, OJ, whatever, would work. It did attract yellow jackets, so be careful and have a clean, wet rag handy to wipe it. It is a
    different and fun item.
    What parts are plastic on this piece?
    Sandra A on Jun 29, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Just the black ring/spacer that touches the front of the melon and the tap handle. Otherwise, everything is heavy duty metal. Very pleased with mine.
    Does this kit come with a coring tool like the regular kit?
    Wellsey on May 24, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: This kit does not include the coring tool. Cheers!
    I was wondering if you can change the top handle?
    A shopper on Dec 4, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, on the deluxe version you can swap the tap handle!
