Slice a very thin sliver - approximately 1/4 inch - off the bottom of the watermelon to stabilize it. Careful! If you cut too much off, the watermelon will leak.
Next, cut the top off the watermelon, approximately 1 inch down from the steam - just large enough to fit your hand inside. Set the tip aside.
Using a spoon or ice cream scoop, scoop out the watermelon and place in a medium-sized bowl to enjoy later.
Press the spigot slightly into the bottom portion of watermelon to create an indent, then cut a hole with a small paring knife. Twist the rings back onto the spigot from inside the watermelon until secure.
Puree the watermelon you have removed.
Pour about one cup of the watermelon puree and 2 cups of lemonade. Mix and add the top.
