The last watermelon we bought was average. The flavor was bland and the texture was grainy. My daughter suggested that we try her cousin's idea: marinate the watermelon in lemonade. We bought strawberry lemonade. It changed the flavor of the watermelon to a delightful, sweet flavor. Yum! Our son used this idea on a date, and in addition...they carved the watermelon like a jack-o-lantern. They placed a candle inside and lit it up when they were done. Fun!
