Any melon can be made into sangria, the wine drink so often served for the long summer days. I chose the Neon Moon yellow melon for it's beautiful bright color. It's quite the refreshing drink!
In a blender, cut up the melon and add to the blender. Blend until smooth and pour through a sieve to remove pulp.
Combine all the ingredients in a large pitcher.
Add slices of fresh fruit, oranges, limes and lemons into the pitcher.
Chill in your refrigerator before serving. Best if made the night before.
Add additional fruit slices to the glasses before serving. Add fresh mint if desired.
To make a sugar syrup, place 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer until sugar is dissolved. The recipe is equal parts sugar to water.
