Watermelon Elderflower Sangria is summer in a pitcher!  Pinot Grigio, St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur, Watermelon, and Strawberries mingle and create a rose-colored pitcher of fun.  Perfect for your next pool party!



1 750 ml bottle Pinot Grigio

1/2 cup St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur

1 and 1/2 cup sliced strawberries

2 cups seedless watermelon balls or cubes

2 sprigs mint (about 16 leaves total)

Club soda, for topping each glass

extra sliced strawberries and watermelon balls or cubes, for freezing, if desired.


Place watermelon, strawberries and mint sprigs in a pitcher.  Add the Elderflower Liqueur and the Pinot Grigio.  Stir well with a bar spoon or a chopstick.  Chill for at least 4 hours.

If you are freezing extra fruit to use as ice cubes for the drink glasses, line a large cookie sheet with parchment and place fruit in an even layer.  Place sheet tray in the freezer until fruit is frozen solid.  This usually takes a couple of hours.

If using frozen fruit as ice cubes for the drink glasses, place frozen fruit in the glasses.

Divide Sangria among four glasses.  Top each glass with a splash of club soda. Serve & enjoy!



  • You can cube the watermelon if you don’t have a melon baller.  I promise it will still be delish!
  • You can make the sangria the day before you plan to serve it.  Make it at least 4 hours in advance, so all the flavors have a chance to blend.
