A few weeks ago when I visited one of my favorite spots in NYC, Vero Wine Bar, I tried the Watermelon Sangria. It's a perfect, refreshing summer treat!
2 pounds of seedless watermelon, peeled and cubed plus 1/2 pound of watermelon cut into balls with a melon baller and skewered onto picks
1 bottle of white wine (preferably a sweeter wine - rose, Riesling, etc.)
5 ounces of vodka
4 ounces of Triple Sec
4 ounces of Simple Syrup
In a blender, puree watermelon cubes. Combine watermelon, white wine, vodka, Triple Sec, and Simple Syrup. Refrigerate until cold. Serve over ice and garnsih with watermelon skewers.
