Cucumber Sangria

This Cucumber Sangria recipe from BHG’s new cookbook Fresh is such a fun summer drink, and so easy to make ahead. Just soak the ingredients in a pitcher for a couple hours in the fridge, then top each glass with cold soda water before serving. It’s so refreshing for a hot day- I am so making this for our next BBQ!

When cutting the melon, I use this simple technique: Simply cut the melon in half, remove the seeds, then lay each half face down on the cutting board. Next, use your knife to shave off the rind in big chunks.

Then slice the melon both in half horizontally, and in each direction to form small cubes.
