Fruit for garnishI used cherries, raspberries, cubed watermelon and sliced plums
Lemon wheels for garnish
Puree watermelon in a blender or food processor and pass through a mesh strainer, discarding solids.
Add watermelon juice to a pitcher along with rosé, vodka, Cointreau and lemon juice. Stir to combine.
Add fruit to pitcher.
To serve, pour sangria over glasses filled with ice and top with soda water.
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.
