How To Make The Perfect Watermelon Punch Bowl!

SHARE

One of the best things about Spritzer Season is summertime fruit, especially watermelon! But did you know watermelon can even be used to impress guests at your next summer soiree by transforming into the perfect punch bowl?

Doesn't it just scream "Summer"? Plus, they add just the right amount of fruity flavor to your punch and they're super easy to make (it's as easy as carving a pumpkin for Halloween).

Here's what you'll need:
-Watermelon
-Pairing Knife
-Large Knife
-Spigot (can be found at a party or homeware store)
-Large Spoon or Ice Cream Scoop

1. Your Watermelon Punch Bowl needs to be able to sit on a flat surface so it doesn't roll off the table. To do so, cut about 1/2 inch off the bottom of the watermelon. Be careful not to cut too deep. You just want enough to make it sit evenly. 2. Next, cut about 2 inches into the top of the watermelon, through the rind and into the edge of the fruit. 3. Use large spoon to scoop out all of the watermelon fruit and put it into a bowl (you can still eat it or blend it into your cocktail/punch).

4. Hold spigot near the bottom of the watermelon and press it firmly into the rind to make an indentation. 5. Use pairing knife to create a small opening and then gently press the spigot into the hole. Make sure you can see the end of the spigot inside the watermelon.

6. Fill Watermelon Punch Bowl with your favorite punch and enjoy!
