Looking for fun, unique party ideas for summer? Planning to serve up some punch on your patio? Then why not turn a watermelon into a punch keg and surprise all of your friends?We never would have come up with this idea all on our own. That’s why we just love the folks over at the Country Living website – they’re always wowing us with original cooking ideas. We just love watermelon, too, and what a perfect idea – filling a huge green melon shell up with some bright pink watermelon punch! What better treat for a hot summer’s day?

Before we really get into the construction of this ingenious keg, let’s first look at all of the wonderful health benefits of watermelon. Medical research studies are showing it can be great for lowering blood pressure, can help people from getting asthma, and it can even help with cancer prevention because it’s such an excellent source of Vitamin C. Because watermelon has such a high water content, it can really help with keeping us hydrated, especially on those long hot summer afternoons. It also contains choline, which is extremely beneficial for any kind of inflammation. What’s more, watermelon is excellent for your skin! Not only is it a great source of Vitamin A, which is necessary for the body’s growth of tissues, one cup of watermelon can provide us with up to 20% of our body’s daily Vitamin C requirements. So you see, we can be fun and creative, and we can be healthy too!

Because of its wonderful health benefits – especially for the warm summer months, we highly recommend making the watermelon punch (with or without the alcohol) that goes with this awesome watermelon keg.
