Summer Sangria…

Summer Sangria is a must for Summer.  I recently made this Watermelon Strawberry Citrus Sangria by Joy the Baker, and it was a hit!  Loved by all!  I even made popsicles! I’m having this sangria at my daughter’s 1st birthday this Saturday.  The adults will definitely be doing the “happy dance”.  This stuff is perfection in a pitcher!  I will forever use this at all my future Summer parties.

Here’s the recipe…

Watermelon Strawberry Citrus Sangria 

makes a big bunch

Print this Recipe!

4 cups watermelon juice, from one small watermelon

1 pound fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced

1 bottle Rose wine, not too sweet is best

1 cup vodka (didn’t use)

1 cup Contreau

juice of 2 oranges

juice of 1 lime

1 orange sliced

1 lime sliced

Slice a watermelon into large chunks.  Reserve a few smaller chunks for the sangria jar and for garnish.  Blend watermelon chunks with a handful of sliced strawberries until smooth.  Depending on the size of your blender, you may need to blend the fruit in two batches.  Strain fruit juice through a fine mesh strainer and into a large measuring cup.  You’ll need about 4 cups of watermelon/strawberry juice.

In a large container stir together, watermelon/strawberry juice, wine, vodka, limoncello, orange juice, and lime juice.  Stir in the remaining sliced strawberries, a few watermelon chunks, sliced oranges, and sliced lime.  Chill thoroughly before serving.  Serve over ice.

 

Cheers!
