Kick-off your next backyard party with this no-fail refreshing cocktail. The perfect blend of melon, citrus and spirits makes the Summertime Sangria so delicious one drink will leave your guests begging for more. Since this cocktail is best served chilled I recommend freezing some of the melon balls before adding them to the recipe. The melon balls freeze nicely and won’t water down your beverage as they thaw.
I recently received a bottle of Balls Vodka which I used to make this cocktail. Balls vodka is American-made vodka, distilled four times and bottled in New York. Not only is this bottle a fierce 80-proof, but fun for everyone as it’s corn-fed. Balls Vodka is great for capturing the spirit of summer. It’s healthy, (under 100 calories per serving) it’s smooth, (tastes a bit like vanilla) and it’s perfect to mix into a cocktail without dominating the taste.
