Patio, grilling and pool weather is right around the corner, and I’m getting a head start with this Watermelon Sangria, which is refreshing and the perfect drink to cool you down.

Serve this sangria and serve along with a delicious guacamole, tortilla chips and an amazing salsa and that’s all you need for a wonderful time!

Even though sangrias are traditionally made using red wine, I personally love the cool and refreshing flavor of a good Rose wine on a warm day. Especially when watermelons are in season, there is honestly nothing better in my opinion that a big pitcher of refreshing sangria.

How to make Watermelon Sangria

Making Watermelon Sangria is one of the most simple cocktails you can make and perfect for gatherings as you make them in a big jar. Just allow plenty time for the flavors to develop and you’re set.

  • Place the watermelon & 1/4 cup vodka in a blender. Blend on high until very smooth.
  • Strain the juice through a mesh strainer into a large pitcher.
  • Pour the wine, remaining of vodka, and orange juice into the pitcher. Add the orange and lime slices and mix well to combine.
  • Chill for at least 4 hours before serving.
  • Serve over ice.

Did you know that you can freeze watermelon? Yup, you can freeze it in chunks or just juice it and have it ready to serve later when watermelons are out of season.

I used my blender to make the juice but you can use your preferred method for juicing. There are sooo many options available these days which I think it’s a good problem to have.

Just juice & enjoy!

    -Hi. I just wanted to comment that your photos are beautiful. I like your recipes too and have pinned a couple already. Love the one for arroz con leche. I will be making the dulce de leche paletas pretty soon. Thank you.

  2. Everything, as always, looks fabulous! Funny you mention buying a juicer! I just returned ours to Macy’s and got my $200 refunded! Why? We told our internist, who is also a nutritionist about our juicing efforts! She really cautioned us against the practice because juicing removes all the nutrients founding the pulp that is removed in the process! So, caution! I thought you would want to know. Your work is so beautiful!
