It's warmer up here in Florida and after an outdoor children's birthday party, nothing sounds better then a watermelon sangria. Yum!

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 pounds seedless watermelon, peeled and cubed. 
  • Optional:  1/2 pound watermelon cut into balls with a melon baller and skewered on picks
  • 1 bottle dry white wine
  • 6 ounces vodka
  • 4 ounces Cointreau or other triple sec
  • 4 ounces Citrus Syrup
  • Ice



DIRECTIONS:
In a blender, puree the watermelon cubes. Pour through a fine strainer into a pitcher. Add the white wine, vodka, Cointreau and Citrus Syrup. Stir and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Stir again, then pour the sangria into ice-filled white wine glasses and garnish with the skewered watermelon balls (or a slice of watermelon as pictured).
