Every 4th of July picnic needs a festive beverage. So why not mix up a nice pitcher of Sangria for the adults?
This colorful and fruity beverage has your RED watermelon, WHITE wine, and BLUEberries. Happy Independence Day.
Patriotic Minty Watermelon Sangria
An Amy Original
1 bottle dry white wine
1 ½-2 lbs watermelon, cut in cubes
1 handful of mint leaves
1 tbsp lime juice
½ cup fresh blueberries
1 (12 oz) can sprite (or other lemon-lime soda)
Place the watermelon in a large pitcher. Pour the wine over the watermelon.
Combine the mint leaves and lime juice in a small bowl and use a spoon to lightly bruise the mint. Stir the leaves into the wine and watermelon mixture. Refrigerate for 2-4 hours.
Fill wine goblets about a quarter full of ice cubes. Spoon watermelon from the wine mixture into each glass and pour wine over the top. Drop a handful of blueberries into each glass and top with a splash of sprite.
Serves 4-6 (or 2, if that’s how you roll)
