From park picnics to backyard barbecues, watermelon is everywhere during the summer months -- and we're thankful for it. One bite into a slice of perfectly ripe watermelon and you're immediately refreshed on a hot day. It's like magic.

Even when you're sticky from juice running down your arm, you know watermelon's worth it. But if you want to skip the mess, try mixing it up with some watermelon recipes. When you make salads, cakes and cocktails out of watermelon, you get all the greatness of watermelon with none of the mess. And if you make a drunken watermelon, you've got everything you need for a great summer party.
