What a relaxing 4th of July weekend we had!
We carried this delicious Sangria with us to the bay
as we watched the fireworks…
A delicious way to begin the holiday weekend!
This particular wine makes a delicious Sangria
and can be found at Walmart…
My watermelon imported all the way from Milton, FL 🙂
Cut it in pretty chunks like this…
I filled my pretty jar…
Add the oranges, cherries and their juice and the simple syrup…
I am oh so excited about the cherries!!!
I added the wine…
I put it in the refrigerator overnight to let the flavors combine…
Right before serving, add the club soda…
So delicious and refreshing!
Lisa’s Watermelon Sangria Recipe
- 1 bottle of Rosato red wine–or your favorite
- 1 jar of maraschino cherries–because they’re my favorite!
- 3 oranges
- 1 recipe of simple syrup=1 cup sugar dissolved in 1 cup water 32 oz club soda
- You can certainly add any other fruit of your choice–I think any other melon and limes would be delish!
Cut the watermelon in chunks and place them in your pitcher or jar.
Add the oranges, cherries and their juice and the simple syrup.
Add the wine.
Place it in the refrigerator overnight to let the flavors combine.
Right before serving, add the club soda.
