Vanilla Vodka & Melon Sangria

By: The Food Hunter

The crisp, refreshing taste of Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio makes it, in my opinion, one of the best bottles for day drinking with friends. Pair it with some chopped melon and vanilla vodka to make an intense Sangria that is ideal for sipping on hot summer afternoons by the pool.

Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio starts with fully ripe Pinot Grigio grapes, harvested by hand from Alto Adige vineyard in the Italian Alps. They are aged for several weeks, until the signature dry golden apple taste develops. It's a pleasing to the palate versatile wine.

Vanilla Vodka & Melon Sangria
(makes 1 pitcher)

8 oz Vanilla Vodka
1 bottle Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio
1 honeydew, chopped
1 watermelon chopped
Seltzer water
fresh mint springs

In a pitcher, combine Vanilla Vodka, Pinot Grigio and fruit.

If serving immediately top off mixture with seltzer and stir. If not refrigerate until ready to use, adding the seltzer at that time.

Pour into glasses and serve with fresh mint.
