Watermelon sangria is for┬áhot summer days when you need to cool down, but also fancy a glass of something boozy. It’s best served chilled, with sunshine and friends.


  • 1kg watermelon
  • 1 bottle of dry white wine
  • 750ml soda water
  • Juice of half a lime (~2 tbsp)
  • 4 sprigs of mint
  • (optional) 100ml Triple Sec/Grand Marnier


Set aside a little bit of the watermelon to cut into chunks/slices for decorating.

Put the remaining watermelon into the blender alongside the lime juice and mint leaves. Blend. Strain through a sieve into a jug, using the back of a spoon to get most of the liquid through.

Add the wine and remaining fruit to the jug and chill in the fridge for two hours.

Stir before serving and add the soda water.

Pour into glasses and serve immediately.
