It’s summertime, and you’ve decided to throw a pool party! Whether you’re hosting a themed event or are simply inviting friends over to lounge in the water, you’ll want to keep your guests entertained with a few drinks. What better way to keep everyone refreshed on a blazing summer day than with a watermelon sangria?
This cocktail recipe screams to be used on a hot, humid day. Fresh watermelon will make your guests nostalgic for their childhood summers as they mingle around the pool. This simple yet delightful cocktail recipe will remind you of one of the most basic truths:
Watermelon + Pool = Summertime!
Watermelon Sangria Cocktail
- 4 cups of seedless watermelon
- 2 ounces of Amoretti Premium Watermelon Drink Syrup
- 1 ounce of añejo rum
- 1 ½ cups of white wine
- 2 limes
Step 1: Prepare the Watermelon
Slice your seedless watermelon into small cubes until you have 4 cups to put into the blender. While it’s fine to sample a watermelon cube, be sure to leave enough for your guests!
Once you have 4 cups of watermelon, purée it in your blender. Strain the watermelon into your pitcher and feel free to add back some pulp to add texture, depending on your personal taste.
Step 2: Welcome the “Good Stuff!”
Now it’s time for your fresh watermelon juice to meet the wine, rum, and Amoretti Premium Watermelon Drink Syrup! Part of what makes this cocktail recipe uniquely effective is the use of fresh juice, accompanied by a premium drink syrup from Amoretti. You’ll find that the flavor is authentic, enhanced, and refreshing enough for a sweltering summer day.
Because the drink syrup is crafted from natural ingredients and contains no artificial flavors or colors, it will perfectly compliment the puréed watermelon. It’s a small detail that your pool party guests might not know, but will definitely taste!
Step 3: The Charming Touch
Squeeze one lime into the pitcher to heighten the tartness of the white wine. Next, slice the other lime into thin pieces and add it to the pitcher. Feel free to cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, or until the desired coolness is achieved.
For a charming touch, garnish the glasses with additional watermelon slices and mint sprigs.
And voilà – you’ve successfully made a refreshing watermelon sangria. This cocktail recipe is sure to make a splash at your pool party!
