I prefer cocktails over wine, but sangria is an exception. Back at home, this famous Spanish beverage is a staple item for parties. Strawberry sangria aka bola, peach, and watermelon with white wine – SANGRIA BLANCA – are my favorite because I can tolerate it better than the red. Use sparkling wine for even fancier sangria.

 

Nothing says summer like biting into a thick slice of watermelon, but I was the only kid in the neighborhood that opted out of the sticky juice running down my elbows. I still don’t eat melons but like everything WATERMELON-flavored. Weird, I know.

If you’re now thinking Jas, what’s better than a watermelon, I’d tell you that eating watermelon while simultaneously having a drink is much, much better. Getting watermelon drunk infused is easy enough to do. Just cut a deep hole, stick an open bottle of vodka in it and let it do its magic (see the video below). Slice it up like a pizza, top with your favorite fruit and enjoy! Just make sure to keep it away from kids. We don’t want kids running around drunk, now do we?

 

 

I used a small star-shaped cookie cutter to cut my apples because the red, white, and blue colors just looked so patriotic and I couldn’t resist. With the Fourth of July nearing, I found it perfect for Independence Day celebration or any other patriotic holiday.

WHAT ARE WATERMELON PIZZA TOPPINGS?

You can use any fruit you like and get creative with this GLUTEN FREE pizza: pineapple, kiwi, mango, bananas, cantaloupe, blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, apples, pears, cherries, pomegranate seeds, coconut flakes, mint, edible flowers…

 

For the kid-friendly version, omit the vodka and spread the slices with vanilla yogurt or cream cheese or ricotta mixed with honey. You’ll have a perfect healthy summer dessert that your whole family will love.

ESSENTIALS

for Watermelon Sangria and Infused Pizza


 

DIRECTIONS:

For the sangria

  1. Scoop 2 cups of melon using a melon baller and set aside. Dice the remaining watermelon into large chunks. Place the watermelon in a blender and pulse until smooth.
  2. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a large jug. Add the wine, triple sec, vodka, and lime juice and stir until combined. Add the reserved watermelon, apple, blueberries, and strawberries and allow to stand in the fridge for 2 hours before serving.

For the infused watermelon pizza

  1. Cut a hole into the watermelon the same size as the vodka bottle cap. Place the spout of the bottle into that hole and allow it to empty into the melon; this can take up to a half hour. Let it refrigerate for at least an hour up to overnight.
  2. With a sharp knife, cut off a large ring of watermelon right down the middle, about 2-3 inches thick. Lay the slice on a cutting board and cut into 6 or 8 slices, depending on size. Layer your fresh fruit on top as you please. You can add as little or as many toppings as you like!
