Flavors of Summer: Fresh Watermelon Sangria

Good morning, skirt! readers. My name is Meg and I’m so thrilled to be part of the new Charleston Blog Society guest posting team for the skirt! blog. I have lived here in beautiful Charleston for two years, and I write the personal lifestyle blog, Borrowed Heaven. I’m originally from New England, and while I miss the seasons of the Northeast, I have a serious love affair with summer. It has the best weather, clothes, food, and drinks. Whether it’s by the pool, at the beach, or on the golf course, I could spend every summer day outside.

Today, I’m excited to share with y’all the perfect complement to any summer afternoon: fresh watermelon sangria. This is definitely my go-to party drink; with just a few ingredients, you can have a whole pitcher filled with delicious summer flavors. Please note that the following recipe is only intended for readers who are 21 years of age and older.

All you need to make your own fresh watermelon sangria are: 2 cups cubed watermelon, 8-10 fresh mint leaves, 2 limes (one sliced, one juiced), 1 bottle of white wine (I used chardonnay), and 1/2 cup of watermelon vodka.

Simply combine all the ingredients in a pitcher, stir it up, pour it into some plastic glasses, and add a cute straw to enjoy by (or in!) the pool. I love how refreshing this cocktail is on a hot day, and it has just the right buzz!
