Ready Time

15 mins

Yields

5 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups rosé wine
  • 1 cup diced seedless watermelon (about 1 small to medium-sized melon)
  • 1/2 cup mixed summer berries (such as blueberries, raspberries, blackberries)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup Grand Marnier or other orange-flavored liqueur
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Sliced lime wheels and additional berries for garnish

Instructions

Start by preparing your watermelon.

In a blender or food processor, puree the diced watermelon until smooth.

Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a large bowl, pressing on the solids to extract as much juice as possible.

Discard the solids.

Add the rosé wine, mixed summer berries, granulated sugar, Grand Marnier, and freshly squeezed lime juice to the bowl with the watermelon juice.

Stir until the sugar is dissolved.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.

Just before serving, stir the sangria gently and adjust the sweetness and flavor to taste.

To serve, pour the sangria into glasses filled with ice.

Garnish each glass with a sliced lime wheel and additional berries.

Serve immediately and enjoy the perfect summer drink!

Notes

Use a high-quality rosé wine that you’d be happy to drink on its own, as it will shine through in this sangria. You can adjust the amount of sugar to your taste – if your watermelon is very sweet, you may not need as much.

Grand Marnier gives this sangria its unique flavor, but feel free to substitute with another orange-flavored liqueur if needed.

For a more intense flavor, let the sangria refrigerate for a few hours or even overnight – just be sure to give it a good stir before serving. Don’t over-mix the sangria, or you’ll end up with a bunch of smashed berries and a cloudy drink.

To make this drink more festive, use edible flowers or thinly sliced fruit (like oranges or apples) as garnishes along with the lime wheels and berries.
