Whether you're stocking the bar for an upcoming bash or looking for signature wedding sips, we've got you covered. On Fridays, Loverly will bring you a new drink recipe, perfect for your next soiree. So raise a glass to this week's Loverly Libation.
We love a refreshing glass of sangria on a lazy spring afternoon, but we're ready to detour from the regular old red wine and fruit combo to try something different this season. This cucumber sangria recipe is a modern twist on the classic drink. Crisp white wine, mild cucumber, and sweet honeydew melon give the sangria a clean and earthy taste that's perfect for warm weather events.
We love serving up special drinks in an equally special way, so we sipped our sangria from must-have monogrammed wine glasses from Things Remembered. Things Remembered is our go-to for engraved and customized gifts, and their personalized products are the perfect way to add a little flair when entertaining!
Ingredients1 small honeydew melon, cubed
1 small seedless cucumber, thinly sliced
