Of course, you guys wanted to know how to make a watermelon fountain. I know you did. Don’t deny it.
Well, I must admit…my sister is one smart celebratory cookie…and she is the one that gets all the credit on this fruity fun fount of pleasure. All I did was suckle the heavenly goodness that flowed from the watermelon’s spout.
And of course, I documented the ins and outs of this creation for future reference 🙂 So, here are my notes:
First you get a watermelon and set it on it’s cutey-patootie. It should sit upright on its own. Lori put a plate under it just in case. Decide on a rather large hole on the upper backside. The hole needs to be large enough to get your hand with a spoon down in there. Scrape and remove the innerds.
Determine the location of the spout. You want it low enough that the drink comes out but high enough to get the cup under there. Lori used a regular faucet that you can get at your local home improvement store. And while you are there, you might want to pick up a locknut that fits the end of the spigot too. Next, you jam a screwdriver through your location. Create a little hole. Move the screwdriver around until the hole is a tiny bit smaller than the spigot. Then you screw your fauct in…use that grease from your elbows here peeps!
On the inside, fasten the locknut to the other end to make for a snug fit. Now take the watermelon scrapings and puree them in the blender.
This puree is going to help make the pink lemonade drink for the inside. Instead of water, use the watermelon juicy liquid as the substitute. Lori made one gallon.
The rest of the watermelon puree she froze into icecubes to make sure the drink was icy cold and refreshing.
And boy was it refreshing!
Lori, you are a genius. And pretty. And talented. I say that out of sisterly love and devotion. And out of a desire to have thought of this fun craft first…or googled it first. And also out of a lifelong attempt and subsequent failure at being your equal. Which I could never be. You are superior to me.
The question is – how did you get so smart and your head size is only a fraction of mine? I should have a much bigger brain…right? I mean, I have the space to store it. I practically have a…well…a watermelon sitting on my neck. Lori – answer me the truthfully…was I the inspiration for this fountain? Were you subliminally saying that I am full of sweet tasty goodness? (please say maybe, please say maybe!)
