FOOD: WATERMELON SANGRIA

Happy 4th of July Westchester!

I have an easy and delicious cocktail that will keep you cool and refreshed this weekend and all summer long.

One of the foods that symbolizes summer for me is watermelon, so I’ve experimented with my sangria recipe and created the Watermelon Sangria you see below.

Watermelon Sangria

Ingredients:
1 teaspoon of sugar
2 ounces fresh watermelon cubed
1 part white wine(I enjoy a light white; but use what you have)
1 part vodka (fruit flavored will work as well)
1 part lemonade (watermelon lemonade will work even better)
Ice
Watermelon, blueberries, and mint to garnish

Start by putting your watermelon and sugar in a shaker. Muddle both ingredients until you create a sweet watermelon cider of sorts. Add your ice, white wine, vodka, and lemonade. Shake thoroughly and pour into your glass. Add your garnish and enjoy!

Happy 4th and see you soon Food Finders!
