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.
