The Pool Bar: Cucumber & Watermelon Sangria

Watermelon Sangria
Written by Kaylynne Hatch

Watermelon SangriaIt’s definitely summer. It’s sunny, it’s hot, and the pool is calling your name. What better way to cool off than with a nice refreshing drink?

Sangria is a drink common in Spain and Portugal and traditionally consists of red wine, chopped fruit, sweetener, and a splash of brandy.

But sangria has proven to be a wildly customizable cocktail. You can make it with red wine, white wine, a wide variety of fruits, and even add a splash of something to give it a little more oomph if you like! And thanks to that fantastic mix of flavors, there’s no need to use pricey wine for it to be impressive.


  • 1 bottle of Sauvignon Blanc (or Rosé)
  • 1 cup Watermelon Juice
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 1 liter Carbonated Water
  • 1 seedless cucumber (thinly sliced)
  • 1 Lime (thinly sliced)
  • 1-2 cups Watermelon Balls
  • 12 Fresh Mint Leaves


Place fruit and cucumber slices into a large pitcher.

In a small bowl, stir together honey and lime juice and add to pitcher.

Add wine, stirring gently.

Chill for at least 2 hours prior to serving.

To serve, stir in carbonated water and pour into chilled glasses.
