Summer Thyme Sangria with Watermelon & Rosemary

Summer Thyme Sangria {with Watermelon & Rosemary}

We recently attended a “Stock the Bar” Wedding Shower for the daughter of our good friends.  One of the libations being served was a beautiful batch of Sangria, loaded with fresh berries and fruits.  I eat (in this case drink) with my eyes first and that Sangria called me, by name.

Flash forward a week and I’ve got my hands on a beautiful watermelon that’s ready to be eaten.  As much as we love watermelon it’s often hard to eat a whole one, even over the course of a few days.  So as half of this baby sat in the fridge the wheels began to spin.  Last year my office celebrated National Watermelon Day.  Click this link to see some of the creative ways we used this glorious fruit.

I decided to first make Rosemary Watermelon Juice.  Half a watermelon pureed in the blender yielded over 2 quarts of watermelon juice.  That was a great start to our refreshing Summer Thyme Sangria.  Just add diced fruit, like strawberries and kiwi, pour in some chilled white wine or sparkling water and you’ve got a wonderful summer cocktail (or mocktail).
