Happy Hour: Watermelon Sangria
May 17, 2013
I love three things about this cocktail: 1) How refreshing it looks, 2) Sangria is my favorite and 3) I get to use a melon-baller to make the garnish. (When I was 10, my Nana ran a commercial kitchen and she used to let me make the watermelon baskets for the fruit salad. Early-90s haute cuisine at its finest.)
The recipe for Watermelon Sangria (and the photo) comes from the fine people at Food & Wine. I think it would be perfect for a baby or bridal shower, or an al fresco brunch. Now, where did I put that melon-baller?
I love the vintage simplicity of this bright pink frock. I would probably take a seam-ripper to the tiny bows on the neckline, but that’s a small matter.
If you prefer a dress that’s more flirty and fun, I actually like the lacy cutouts on this Max & Cleo frock. But if cutouts aren’t your thing, I like this dress with a pleated skirt and embroidery on the bodice.
