How To Make a Pumpkin Keg Just In Time For Halloween


If you were looking for the perfect thing to top off your Halloween party or fall bash, look no further! This pumpkin keg tutorial is really easy to follow, and you know it’ll be a huge hit with your guests! All you need are your basic pumpkin carving tools, a tap, and your favorite Halloween-inspired cocktail.

How To Make a Pumpkin Keg:


  • 1 large pumpkin
  • Sharpie/permanent marker
  • Carving tools/paring knife
  • Pumpkin scoop (to clean out inside)
  • Apple corer
  • Tap


Using a sharpie, draw a circle around the top of your pumpkin where you’d like the “lid” to be. Cut the top of the pumpkin off with a carving or paring knife, and scoop out the insides just like you would if you were carving it. Determine where you want the tap to be, and use an apple corer to put a hole in the pumpkin. Install your tap and screw it in the back so it’s secure. Mix up your favorite Halloween cocktail and pour it into the pumpkin and secure the lid back on top.
