This is probably more like a cross between sangria and a wine spritzer, which are my two favourite drinks in the summer. I feel like spritzers are perfect for hot weather since they’re not as dehydrating as a straight glass of wine. And adding some fruit to it just adds to the summeriness.
And the other thing I love is rosé (also: Brooklyn Nine Nine). Maybe I’m just falling for the LCBO’s clever marketing, but every one I’ve tried this summer has been delicious! We have a bottle that we picked up on our Niagara-on-the-Lake engagement weekend from Between The Lines winery and I am so excited to crack it open. Maybe for a little post wedding celebrating?
Bubbly Watermelon Rosé Sangria
- 1/2 bottle rose (I just used a bottle of Jackson-Triggs – I didn’t want to go too fancy since I was adding to it!)
- 3/4 cup watermelon juice
- 1/2 small watermelon, diced
- 1.5 cups sparkling water
Place the diced watermelon in a pitcher and pour the wine over it. Let chill in the fridge for at least an hour. When ready to serve, add the juice and the soda and stir briefly. Serve with plenty of the watermelon in each glass. Yum!
