White Cherry, Lime, & Watermelon Sangria

I’ve been so pleasantly blown away by the popularity of my White Strawberry-Lemon Sangria – both online and at home – that I thought I’d try another fruity-citrusy white sangria combo.

I like this combo as much – possibly even more – than the first. Fresh bing cherries give this light, uber-drinkable sangria a lovely pink hue. And you can really taste that sweet cherry goodness. Loads of lime slices enhance the cherry flavor … and then there’s the super-spiked rounds of watermelon. Yeah, this is pretty much July in a glass.

Like its strawberry-lemon cousin, this too boasts a nice, not-too-sweet flavor that makes it deliciously drinkable – possibly even dangerously so. You’ve been warned!

White Cherry, Lime, & Watermelon Sangria

Bing cherries, limes, watermelon, white wine, and rum join together to make a refreshing, uber-drinkable summer sangria.


Ingredients:


  • 3 cups watermelon balls (or approx. 3/4-inch chunks)

  • 2 cups bing cherries, halved and pitted

  • 3 limes, thinly sliced

  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced

  • 1 750 ml bottle white wine (a dry-ish white wine is best - I like Sauvignon Blanc)

  • 1/2 cup white rum

  • 4 cups lemon-lime soda


Directions:


  1. Add watermelon to a large pitcher, then the cherries, then the limes, then the lemons.

  2. Pour the wine and rum over the top.

  3. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 4 - 5 hours.

  4. Remove from refrigerator and add the lemon lime soda. Add a few pieces of the fruit to your glass along with ice (if desired), and pour sangria over to serve.

  5. Keeps for about 24 hours in the refrigerator; just be sure to add the lemon-lime soda right before serving.
