Melon Mint Pink Sangria


Melon Mint is a refreshing flavor, I like blending watermelon, cantaloupe and honeydew, but even if you just choose one type of melon this recipe tastes great. Sometimes I leave out the lemonade and just let the melon and mint speak for its self.

Melon Mint Pink Sangria

2 Bottles Moscato (or other sweet white wine)

5 cups melon, cubed
1 container frozen pink lemonade concentrate

Directions
Combine melon, wine and mariner in a large pitcher. Refrigerate for 4-6 hours, or over night if desired.
Muddle 2-4 mint leaves with either the sugar or 1 tsp lemonade concentrate while slushy. Add in muddled mint, (all of the) lemonade to pitcher.  Just before serving add club soda and garnish with fresh mint.
