Since my first sangria attempt went so well, I decided to make a batch of watermelon sangria for Broke Girls Book Club yesterday! Like last time, I was looking for a recipe with only a few different kinds of fruit in it, to keep costs reasonable, and this watermelon sangria recipe was perfect with only 1 fruit.
Watermelon Sangria (recipe adapted from The Pioneer woman Cooks)
2 bottles Rosé wine
1 bottle champagne or prosecco1 medium-sized seedless watermelon *I couldn’t find a good watermelon, so improvised and bought two large seedless watermelon quarters
1. Cut watermelon rind into chunks, making sure there is a good amount of pink attached to each piece of rind.
2. Put chunks of watermelon into a large pitcher.
3. Pour both bottles of wine into the pitcher and stir. Refrigerate for 6 hours (more, if possible).
4. Just before serving, pour the champagne into the pitcher and stir to combine.
5. Serve with watermelon chunks (no rind), if desired, or use tongs to get some alcohol-soaked watermelon pieces out of the pitcher and into drink cups. Pro Tip: Eat the delicious alcohol-soaked watermelon pieces!
I really liked the way this sangria turned out. It was crisp and refreshing, perfect for a Summer night, and I LOVE how simple it is to make! I highly recommend it for your next BBQ!
