Description

This Watermelon Berry Rosé Sangria is summer in a glass! Filled with juicy summer watermelon and berries, refreshing rosé wine, brandy, and a pop of fresh citrus, it’s all you’ll want to drink all summer long. It’s quick and easy to prepare and can be made ahead.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups watermelon juice (see NOTE)
  • 1 (750-mL) bottle rosé wine
  • ½ cup brandy
  • ½ cup simple syrup (see NOTE)
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 2 cups watermelon cubes or balls
  • 1 cup fresh mixed berries
  • 2 cups sparkling water or club soda

For Optional Garnish:

  • Fresh mint
  • Watermelon wedges
  • Mixed berries
  • Lime slices or wedges

Instructions

  1. About one hour before you want to serve, make the sangria base by combining the watermelon juice, wine, brandy, simple syrup, lime juice, and fruit in a large pitcher or punch bowl. Chill in the fridge.
  2. Right before serving, add in the sparkling water and stir to combine.
  3. Pour into glasses filled with ice. I like to make sure that each glass gets some of the fruit that has soaked in the sangria. Garnish with mint sprigs, watermelon wedges, fresh berries, and lime slices.

Notes

  • I use store-bought watermelon juice for drinks like this, but it is super easy to make your own. Place fresh watermelon cubes in a blender with a splash of water (3 cups cubes to ¼ cup water) and blend on high until smooth. Pour through a fine-mesh strainer. Store juice in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. It may separate while it sits – this is fine. Just give it a good shake or stir before using.
  • To make simple syrup, combine equal parts sugar and water in a saucepan and place over medium heat. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 5 minutes or so, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is completely dissolved. Cool to room temperature and then chill in an airtight container in the fridge.
