Thirsty Thursday: Kiwi Melon Sangria

Talk about a yummy drink!  We bought a ton of kiwi last week, and I’ve been searching for recipes that contain kiwi, and thought, why not look for a fun cocktail involving kiwi, as well.  I found this recipe at Cocktail Times.  It does involve some “wait time,” but it sure sounds like it’s worth the wait!

Kiwi Melon Sangria

– 1 bottle (750 ml) dry white wine such as dry Riesling
– 4 peeled and sliced Zespri green kiwifruit
– 1 cup (237 ml) fresh watermelon, peeled, seeded and cubed
– 1 lime, thinly sliced
– 1 1/2 oz Midori melon liqueur
– 1/4 cup granulated sugar

Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher, stirring to crush some of the fruit. Cover and refrigerate overnight for at least 12 hours to let the flavors marry before serving. Serve over ice, including some fruit. Use within 4 days.

Happy Sipping!

P.S. Yesterday’s Wednesday Whereabouts was the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC.  Congrats to all who guessed it correctly!  The best time to go is at Christmas.  They have the best gingerbread house displays, and the Christmas decorations there are beautiful!
If interested, Vineyard Vines is offering an extra 50% off all sale items.  Just use the code: FIFTY.  I found some great items, but think I’m going to check out the store today, so I can save on shipping.
Couldn’t resist showing you E’s latest “CHEESE!” face.

 Such concentration.
Hope y’all have a lovely Thursday!

  1. A kiwi is one of my favorite fruits. I think this would be a perfect drink to sip on while at the pool on a hot summer's day. I'm pinning it for sure.
