Frozen Watermelon Sangria

WIN_20150725_123400Gossiping with my little sister over cocktails isn’t something I get to do everyday – she lives almost 700 miles away, probably because I was bossy as a child.  🙂  In all seriousness, rare afternoons with my little sis are fun! On our most recent visit, we enjoyed this Frozen Watermelon Sangria. I think you’ll enjoy it, too!

WIN_20150725_122643Ingredients (Makes 2 jumbo servings)

2 baby watermelon (about the size of a large grapefruit)

1 cup of fruity, dry red wine

1/4 cup triple sec

WIN_20150725_1225511/2 lemon (peel included), cut in small chunks

crushed ice

citrus slices for garnish

WIN_20150725_123255Directions

Step 1) Set watermelons on a countertop to see how they naturally balance. Cut a thin slice off of the top (parallel to the countertop) of each watermelon. Carefully scoop out the insides, placing the watermelon flesh in a blender. DON’T GET CARRIED AWAY – if you accidentally puncture the watermelon rind, you can’t use the rind as a serving cup!

Step 2) Add wine, triple sec, and lemon to the blender. Add crushed ice to fill the blender, and blend until the mixture resembles a pink slush. If mixture is too thick, add a bit of water, orange juice, or wine. If mixture is too thin, add more ice.

Step 3) Pour mixture carefully into watermelon shells. Garnish with citrus slices (and an adorable little umbrella if you have them on hand) and serve immediately!

…and little sis, about that Play-Doh I made you eat as a child… sorry about that…  😉
