  • 1 750mL bottle dry rosé
  • 1 cup watermelon juice
  • 1/2 cup brandy
  • 1/2 cup grand marnier
  • 2 cups  club soda plain or whatever flavor you’d like
  • 1 1/2 cups of watermelon balls
  • 1 pint of strawberries sliced
  • 1 giant handful fresh mint

for the rim

  • 2 teaspoons ancho chili powder + 1 tablespoon sugar stirred together


  • To make the watermelon juice, take 4 cups fresh watermelon cubes and place them in the blender. Blend until they are pureed totally then strain the mixture over a glass. Now you have watermelon juice!
  • Add all of your fruit to the bottom of a pitcher. Pour your wine, watermelon juice, brandy, grand marnier and club soda over top and stir. This tastes great when it sits in the fridge and “marinates” for a bit. To serve, rim a glass with a lime wedge and dip it in the ancho chili sugar. Add ice and some of the boozy fruit and pour the sangria over top.
