Sangria is usually made with red wine, but white just says summer, doesn't it? Choose an affordable light and dry variety, such as Spanish Albarino, Portuguese Vinho Verde or Sauvignon Blanc.


  • 4 cups cubed seedless watermelon
  • 2 750 - milliliter bottles dry white wine, chilled
  • 1 cup brandy
  • 1/2 cup Triple Sec
  • 1/4-1/2 cup superfine sugar
  • 2 limes, thinly sliced
  • Thin watermelon wedges


  1. Place watermelon cubes in a blender. Cover and puree until smooth. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer set over a large bowl, pressing juices through with the back of a spoon. Discard solids.
  2. Add wine, brandy, triple sec and sugar to bowl; whisk to combine. (You may want to add a little more sugar, depending on the sweetness of the watermelon.) Cover and chill at least 4 hours or overnight.
  3. Just before serving, add ice to 2 large pitchers. Stir contents of bowl, then divide between pitchers (or keep half chilled). Divide lime slices between pitchers, and tuck in a few watermelon wedges. Serve, garnishing each glass with a watermelon wedge.
