Have no fear, we still have a lot of summer ahead of us. It may be August, but we still have a whole month left. To me, summer time means summery drinks shared with friends on the patio. Sangria is the perfect choice for sharing, and what better way to celebrate the flavors of summer than with strawberries and watermelon. Add a splash of sparkle and you're ready to fiesta.
Sparkling Watermelon Strawberry Sangria
3 cups cubed watermelon
2 cups sliced strawberries
1 cup white rum
1/2cup fresh lime juice
2 sprigs of mint
1 bottle dry white wine
1 bottle strawberry champagne (I used Passion Pop)
1 lime thinly sliced
Muddle 1 cup watermelon, 1/2 cup strawberries, mint, rum, and lime juice.
Add the remaining fruit, lime slices, mint, white wine, and champagne. Stir and refrigerate for several hours before serving.
