Cucumber Melon Sangria
This cucumber melon white sangria will make you think twice about your typical red wine sangria! Fresh, ripe honeydew melon, crisp and cool cucumbers swirl around and dance in a combination of dry Prosecco and sweet white grape juice.

Can I use watermelon?
Yes, if desired you can swap out the honey melon for watermelon. The flavor will change and there will be more color added to your glasses which is always fun.
How long do you let the fruit sit in sangria?
For the best flavor you want to let the fruit sit for at least 30 minutes in the mixture but not much more than 2 hours. I find that it tastes great around the one hour mark so I usually serve it up around then.
Do you serve sangria over ice?
Sangria is a drink best served chilled but its rarely served “on the rocks” or with ice. This is because the ice will melt and water down the tasty drink. For best tasting results, chill your drink before serving.
