When I hosted a clam bake a few years ago, I was on the hunt for a fun sangria recipe to compliment the evening. After testing a few recipes, I tweaked them and came up with my own. This beverage is so light, refreshing and super easy to make! It is the perfect compliment to any summer gathering.
There are SO many sangria recipes to choose from. I enjoy both red and white sangrias. But, for me, nothing beats a good white sangria in summer and I’m always looking for new ways to make it.
One of my favorites is this peach sangria.
But I don’t know, this watermelon sangria is really good so it may be my new favorite now.

This watermelon sangria recipe is great for entertaining because it is light, refreshing and not too sweet. It is super easy to make, a real crowd pleaser and I would definitely make two batches if you are entertaining more than 4 people! Enjoy!
1 Lime, sliced
1/2 Pint Blueberries
4 Cups of Watermelon, cubed
2 Tbsp Lime Juice
1/4 Cup Simple Syrup (See Below)
1/2 Cup Tripe Sec
1 Bottle White Wine
(Optional: 1/2 Liter Lemon/Lime soda, Seltzer or Pellegrino)
- Prepare the simple syrup. To make simply syrup, mix one cup of water and one cup of sugar on the stovetop. Heat until dissolved which takes roughly 3 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool before using.
- Mix all ingredients (except carbonated beverage) together and refrigerate for 2 hours until flavors combine.
- If you prefer sangria with carbonation, add the carbonated ingredient prior to serving. I like to give options with carbonation because some like the sweetness of a lemon/lime soda, while others prefer the carbonation without the extra sugar – it’s a personal preference – so play around with what you like!)
- Garnish with mint and lime slices. Cheers!
