    FloridaNative's Note:

    Even though it seems a contradiction for a sangria to be made with white wine (since sangria is named for its blood-red color), once you've tasted this festive thirst quencher it won't matter a bit! Pieces of mixed summer melons are the perfect match for a crisp Sauvignon Blanc. From 'EatingWell.com' and posted for ZWT5.

      Made with honeydew and "Three buck Chuck" Pinot Grigio. Skipped the lime and starfruit garcnish since I didn't have any, but the lime is good to cut the sweetness of the melon. Fizzy and refreshing as ANY summer drink should be! Made for ZWT8 Herbaceous Honeys.

      I used Cava so I skipped the soda as the wine has it`s own bubbles! Garnished with a strawberry, mint and lime. I cut back on the sugar to 2 tablespoons. Sweet and good. Made for ZWT 5. Thanks for the delish drinks!
