The last holiday weekend of the Summer is just around the corner and if you plan on hosting a party, you might be in need of a pitcher drink. My all-time favorite cocktail that can be made in a large quantity is sangria. It's super easy to put together and tastes better when it's made a day in advance, which is perfect for entertaining. I've been experimenting with different kinds of sangria since falling in love with Spain nine years ago; here's a roundup of the best sangria recipes out there.
One of my favorite online pastimes is browsing recipes. Not just any recipes, but appetizers and pitcher drinks (yes, I am obsessed with cocktail parties). Since I'm partial to certain recipe databases, when I come across a preparation I've never seen before, like this watermelon sangria, I'm super excited. As I read it, getting more and more giddy by the minute, I wondered, how had I never seen it before? I went through the recipe rolodex in my brain.
There was nothing labeled watermelon sangria. I sent a link with the recipe to YumSugar asking her if it looked familiar. She had not seen it either. Thus, I made it the following day and received rave reviews. It was so refreshing and easy to drink that I made it again. And again. No joke, this watermelon sangria is my new favorite recipe! It's fruity, cooling, and addictive. Want to learn how it's done? Get the method now.
