Absolutely Amazing Cucumber-Melon White Sangria Recipe


About every few months, (when my husband travels for work) I host a girls’ night at our home. Each time, I try to craft a fun new cocktail for guests to sip on while we chat in our yoga pants. Recently, I stumbled across this recipe at a Bridal Shower and it’s absolutely delicious.

I’m not a fan of red sangria (in my opinion, it’s always too sweet), so I was a bit leery when I made my first batch of this. But after one sip I was hooked – and so were my friends – 15 ladies went through three batches that night.

Ready to delight your guests’ tastebuds at the next party? Be sure to give this light, crisp and refreshing cocktail a try:


  • 1 bottle Sauvignon Blanc (or other dry white wine)
  • 1/2 cup white tequila
  • 1/2 cup St. Germaine
  • 1 liter of Sprite (healthier substitution: carbonated water)
  • 1/2 small Honeydew melon, cubed (I used a melon ball scoop, it makes for a visually appealing presentation)
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint
  • 1/2 cucumber, sliced thin
  • 1 lime, quartered
  • 1 lime, sliced thin


  • Chill wine, tequila, St. Germaine and Sprite beforehand.
  • Squeeze the quartered lime into your beverage container, then toss remnants.
  • Add all other ingredients into your container
  • Add lots of ice, gently stir and enjoy!
  • When refilling, simply add more alcohol and Sprite, no need to add more fruit (unless you’re eating it.)

Pro tips:

  • Mix ingredients about 30 minutes before your guests arrive to allow for the juices to mix and mingle.
  • Want some color? Halve a handful of strawberries and drop in for some flare.
