Minty Melon Sparkler

Light, fresh and sparkling make this watermelon mint sangria perfect for summer.  It even goes well with a hot dog.  I totally stole this from Chick-fil-A, they have a watermelon mint lemonade.  What a good combo for a summer sangria.  Enjoy!!!

Shopping list

  • 1 bottle of sparking rose per 34oz pitcher
  • Watermelon schnapps 
  • 30 small cubes of watermelon 
  • Mint
  • Club soda

How to

  • In a small pitcher (I used a 34oz pitcher) pour 4 ounces of watermelon schnapps 
  • Add about 20 cubes of watermelon 
  • Add a handful of mint leaves
  • Now you want to muddle the watermelon and mint together using a muddler; to muddle means to press the ingredients against the side of a pitcher with a muddler.  This releases the flavors so they bind with the alcohol
  • Add bottle of sparkling rose
  • Now you can pour/ makes about 4 serving
  • Divide into 4 glasses and top each with club soda
  • Garnish with 3 watermelon cubes and 2 leaves of mint

sip responsibly!!
