I love using watermelon when it comes to parties with alcohol. It adds great flavour and it can serve many people! Working with watermelon also means you can get creative. Using the skin as a container adds flair and function to any gathering.

The sweeter your watermelon, the better! That way, you won’t have to add so much syrup. My trick for choosing a good watermelon is by making sure it’s heavy. Dryer watermelons are lighter and won’t have as much flavour. 

In my latest video, I make two watermelon drinks recipes. I use the watermelon as a keg for a fruity punch, and make cool jello shots that look like slices of watermelon. Watch the video to see how I did it!

Recipes:

Watermelon Jello Slices
3 to 4 packs of Strong Gelatin
1 cup of vodka
2 cups of hot watermelon juice
1 cup of cold watermelon
1 pack of flavoured jello (strawberry or watermelon flavoured) 
Watermelon Keg Punch: 
1.5 Liters of Watermelon Juice
150ml of Aperol
550 ml of Rum 
300 ml of simple syrup
Juice of 4 lemons
