Let’s be real. We might all die this summer if we don’t find our way to the pool. Before you jump in, be sure to have one of these pitcher cocktail recipes at the ready. Made with our seasonal Watermelon Rose Tonic, these three batched recipes are exactly what you need to chill poolside.
A Pitcher of Watermelon Sangria and a Big Bowl of Fruit
When making a summer sangria, keep the fruit on the side. Delicate fruits like watermelon or berries can disintegrate into the punch leaving you with a soggy, unappealing piece of fruit. Our vibe is to make the sangria and keep the fruit close by for snacking or for garnish.
This sangria calls for our summer seasonal, Iconic Watermelon Rose Tonic. This mixer is made with fresh melons and fragrant roses, all balanced out with the right amount of quinine. To complement the rose flavor, we are using a Rosé instead of white wine. Garnished with slices of cucumber and melon balls from watermelon and Korean melon, this will be your new favorite summer sipper.
