This refreshing Watermelon Sangria is one of my favorite sangria recipes for summer! Made with white wine, triple sec, seedless watermelon, and lemon-lime soda.
Summer is here. We’ve been keeping up on the vegetable garden and it’s coming along nicely! After a long, hot day in the garden, a glass of homemade sangria hits the spot!
White wine sangria recipes are the perfect cocktails for picnics, pool parties, and backyard gatherings. I love serving them with Tomato Bruschetta, Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches, and Twice Baked Potatoes.
• Sangria is one of the easiest cocktail recipes to make! Start by pouring your favorite red or white wine into a large pouring pitcher or drink dispenser.
• Add your favorite fruit, such as slices of oranges, different color apples, or seedless watermelon and a fruit juice like guava or mango nectar to the pitcher and stir to combine. I often add a touch of simple syrup, especially if you are using a dry wine.
• Be sure and let the sangria sit for 2 to 4 hours before drinking. This helps make sure that all the flavors can mix together. Just let it sit in the fridge until you’re ready to serve. (If adding lemon-lime soda or seltzer, wait to add that just prior to serving!)
How to keep the Drink Dispenser Nozzle from getting Clogged:
Get some faux ice cubes and fill the bottom of your drink dispenser with them, just up to the nozzle. This will prevent any fruit pieces, etc. from clogging the nozzle and keep your drinks flowing nicely! Find them on Amazon.
