It’s been a rainy and cold few days here, but I am so not ready for summer to end, so I decided to test a summer pin, because I am #upforwhatever, even if the weather is not cooperating. Check out this watermelon smoothie that you make with a watermelon, a wire hanger, and a drill. (Not even kidding.)
While attempting to make a watermelon smoothie of my own, I decided to also try a Bud Light Lime. I’m not much of a beer drinker in general, but Bud Light Lime is kind of nice for a summer project– it’s a beer with a refreshing twist of lime flavor. (It also comes in these sleek new cans, but hey, I’m into the bottles.)
So, besides the beer, you need a drill, some coat hangers, and a watermelon, preferably seedless. (You’ll see why.) If you’re wondering, you can indeed buy wire hangers at the grocery store. I don’t know why, except maybe for this exact purpose.
The first step is to drill a hole in the watermelon.
Next, you should pause to admire your work and drink some more Lime. After all, you have completed step 1 successfully and now there’s the added bonus of other members of your household discovering watermelon all over the drill bit and wondering what the hell happened.
The next step requires wire cutters, so maybe slow your roll on the Bud Light Lime for a second. Once you have the hanger cut, you put it in the drill like a drill bit.
It looks scary, but I guess it’s kind of meant to. I mean, we’re going to willingly destroy the innards of a watermelon with it. Maybe.
Guys, I really gave this one my all. Seriously. I put down my beer and made Serious Face. But about 15 seconds into the process of muddling the insides of my poor, innocent watermelon, it decided to fight back. The drill kicked like a bronco and I almost dropped the thing, and here’s what it looked like when I took it out of the watermelon.
Watermelon: 1. Pintester: 0. I decided that even though the video said 30 seconds was the appropriate amount of time, 15 seconds had to be good for something, and I didn’t really feel like fixing my hanger drill contraption.
So I cut a hole/spout in the watermelon and turned it over into a glass. Sigh. I can’t spin this any other way than fail, guys. My consolation prize? At least I still had a beer to drink, because the watermelon smoothie was not to be.
This summer, Bud Light Lime is bringing you the flavorful, refreshing twist of lime that will keep you ready for spontaneous fun all summer long. And now, the perfect beer for whatever happens invites you to click here to prove that you’re #upforwhatever.
