Fresh cherries, zingy lime, and white wine make a knock-your-socks-off sangria in the form of this Cherry Lime 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 in the form of this cherry lime sangria.

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.

Cherry, Lime, & Watermelon White Sangria recipe - summertime has arrived!

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!

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


  • 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


  • Add watermelon to a large pitcher, then the cherries, then the limes, then the lemons.
  • Pour the wine and rum over the top.
  • Cover and place in the refrigerator for 4 – 5 hours.
  • 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.
  • Keeps for about 24 hours in the refrigerator; just be sure to add the lemon-lime soda right before serving.
