Watermelon & Honeydew Sangria Recipe

Comments

Spring is finally here and we have warm weather cocktails on our minds! So we whipped up a delicious Watermelon and Honeydew Sangria recipe to get you all excited for outdoor entertaining! First, we made a fresh watermelon and honeydew puree and then added in cucumbers, kiwis, limes, lemons and strawberries to create an extra fruity flavor. Sangria is a great “large batch” cocktail to make for parties. It gets an extra bonus in my book because the flavors blend together more after it sits for a bit and the fruits soak up the juices. It takes a little pressure off, knowing it will still taste delicious throughout a soirée! For this watermelon and honeydew sangria recipe, we used gin, white wine and orange liquor. It would also be great with vodka too! It’s really your preference. So dust off those ole’ patio cushions, whip up some Watermelon and Honeydew Sangria and enjoy!
