Watermelon Sangria is the summer cocktail you’ve been needing in your life. This refreshing drink is full of watermelon flavor and yummy white wine.
After you make this, you should try the Beach Water Cocktail. It’s by far my most popular cocktail and the easiest, too.
To make this drink, you’ll need a few fresh fruits, some vodka and your favorite white wine. That’s it!
When I sat out to make this, I wasn’t super familiar with sangrias so I was a bit nervous to mess it up. Turns out, they are actually easier than I thought it would be. I’ll definitely be making more now.
If you love watermelon drinks, we also have a tasty Watermelon Margarita recipe.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Watermelon. I like to grab the container already diced for me from the produce section of the grocery store. I’m not a big fan of cutting watermelon!
- Cantaloupe. If there is another melon you like better, feel free to substitute it.
- Sugar. To sweeten up the fruit a bit.
- Vodka. Any brand.
- White wine. This part is totally your choice and can really change the flavor of your sangria. You could use Riesling, Moscato, White Zinfandel, etc.
Watermelon Sangria Recipe
- Puree watermelon. Use your blender to puree the fruit with sugar. Use a strainer to pour it into your drink pitcher.
- Add fruits and alcohol. Add the other fruit chunks, vodka and your white wine selection.
- Chill. Let the sangria chill in the fridge for at least an hour.
This is my favorite pitcher because it has a lid and is shatterproof.
Enjoy making this yummy cocktail this summer. I foresee it being a staple that we make every year.
