Summertime brings with it warm weather and  new fresh fruits in season.   I look forward to the plentiful supply of watermelon during the summer and was eager to try out this recipe that calls for two favorites:  watermelon + wine!

I ended up not making the recipe as stated and changed it up a little.   Here’s my version for you to try!

Watermelon Sangria

2 cups watermelon, cubed and cold
2 cups pineapple, cubed and cold
1 bottle dry white sherry
1 lime, sliced thin
1 bottle (750ml) sparkling Moscato (I used Emeri’s pink moscato)
1/2 can frozen limeade

In a pitcher, add the pineapple and  cold watermelon cubes and the sherry. Add 8 to 10 slices of lime. Add the Moscato and limeade. Stir with wooden spoon to mix. Pour into ice-filled glasses and top each glass with a couple pieces of watermelon and a lime slice. Enjoy!
