Watermelon Sangria

Posted on

Had your fill of munching on watermelon? How about sipping on it instead! While scooping out the watermelon might get a little messy, trust us, it’s totally worth the effort. This refreshing, big-batch cocktail comes together in a breeze, and serving it right out of the watermelon is guaranteed to wow your guests. Any bottle of white wine will do, but we highly recommend trying it with moscato for an extra delightful twist. (If you’ve tasted our Giggle Juice, you know the deal.)
