What to do with all that watermelon?

Who doesn’t love watermelon on a hot summer day? But unless you have a large family, it’s hard to eat it an entire melon! We always have watermelon leftover from our July 4th cookout, but recently discovered that it makes a refreshing lemonade beverage, and it keeps for several days in the refrigerator. And for grownups, you can sneak some spirits in there for an extra punch!
