  3. Add fruit to pitcher.

Recipe Notes

  • Feel free to add just about any type of fruit you have on hand to this watermelon rosé sangria. Strawberries, grapes, apples, pears and lime wheels would all be great!
  • Although any variety of rosé will work for this recipe, white wine will absolutely work too! I recommend a more crisp variety such as Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio for sangria.
  • Instead of plain soda water, try topping off your watermelon rosé sangria with your favorite flavored soda water for an extra burst of fruity flavor! I'm a La Croix addict, and when I made this batch I used their passion fruit soda water to top off my glass, which added an extra subtle flavor.
