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 Albariño, Portuguese Vinho Verde or Sauvignon Blanc.

  • 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.

  • 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.
