Watermelon Sangria

For some who are not familiar with Sangria, it basically is a fruit punch with alcohol. It uses wine, fresh fruit, juices and originally hails from Spain. Sangria has always been one of my go to adult beverages and I now enjoy making a bunch of different varieties. I make a really great apple cider sangria in the fall. It’s amazing!

When it comes to sangria you can pretty much always follow the same formula. One bottle of wine, one cup of hard liquor, a juice or a soda base, some sort of sweetener and fresh fruit! When you’ve made enough, then you can play with the formula. Sangria is also like pico de gallo, the longer it has to rest before consuming, the better the taste! So make sure to let it sit for a minimum of 4 hours before serving. I like having it sit overnight which makes it a great ahead-of-time drink to make if you are throwing a party.

Tip: When starting your sangria, add the fruit first! Otherwise, it will plop and the juices may get on you.

For this Sangria I used an entire half of one watermelon, cut it into pieces, blended and strained it (makes one full quart of liquid). It made the most delicious juice and I just couldn’t get enough of it. I knew I wanted to pair it with pineapple because well, I had leftover pineapple juice and frozen pineapple on hand. To make it seem a little fancy, I decided to also add some rosé wine and then vodka as my spirit. Yummm! For my sweetener I added agave syrup, and my fresh fruit was blueberries and peaches. Finally, to finish it off I added Mint! I chose mint because I knew it would pair well with the watermelon and it’s growing like crazy in the garden right now. That’s it. Mix everything together and leave it in the fridge overnight. When you are ready to pour, make sure you add ice first and then pour your drink!
