Beat the heat this summer and quench your thirst with this super refreshing Cucumber Melon Sangria.
The best summer cocktails are light, refreshing and easy to sip on all night long. This Cucumber Melon Sangria ticks all of those boxes plus it is made in advance which pretty much makes this the perfect summer party cocktail.
What I love about sangria is you don’t have to break the bank to enjoy it. A $10 or less bottle of wine will do the job nicely. Pick a moderately dry white wine for this recipe. Pile in chunks of sweet honeydew melon, fresh cucumber slices and a handful of cooling mint along with a generous pour of dry gin. Let this mixture chill out in the fridge for at least a few hours so all the flavors blend together. To keep the taste light and refreshing, add a bit of sparkling water or club soda to the pitcher just before serving.
The recipe for this Cucumber Melon Sangria is easily multiplied for a large group of people, and I highly recommended that you at least double it. You’ll be amazed at how quickly you sip your way through it.
