It's officially summer and we couldn't be happier about it! If you're like us, you're excited about the long sunny days, the warm, warm weather and being outside! Oh, and the sangria. How could we forget the sangria?! This is the recipe we'll be sipping on this summer...
1 small watermelon, rind removed, juiced (about 4 cups)
1 cup fresh strawberries, chopped, reserve a few for garnish
2 cups fresh orange juice
1 bottle rose wine, cold
1 cup vodka
1/2 cup orange liqueur
1 orange, sliced
Juice the watermelon in a juicer or place it in a blender and blend on high until smooth. Blending it will create a throthy, thicker drink. Pour into a glass pitcher and add chopped strawberries, orange juice, alcohol and orange slices. If you need extra refreshment, add some ice cubes. Serve in your favourite pretty glasses and garnish with a strawberry!
