Fre Melon Sangria

As you may have noticed, I’ve been on a cocktail kick lately.

I’m excited to share with you all these refreshing cocktail ideas, that are great for any summer party!

It is summer and fruit drinks are trending! This Melon Ball Sangria is so refreshing. And cool looking with the melon balls inside the glass.

The possibilities to create delicious and impressive cocktails are endless!

This sparkling melon ball sangria is very easy to make, sweet and full of summer flavor. It is also perfect for entertaining!

Brut Sangria


All you need for this Melon Ball Sangria (the hardest part in making this pitcher cocktail) is – get your melon baller into use.

Then transfer balls to a pitcher, top them with sweet sparkling Brut, fruit juice and soda water. It really is that simple!

Ant the best part -this melon sangria is made with alcohol removed wine. How exciting ! Sip smarter my friends!


I was recently given the opportunity to try Fre Alcohol Removed Wines. They are perfect to enjoy during summer. They have the following varieties: Brut, Red Blend, Chardonnay or Merlot.

Fre Wines

Fre wines provide an alternative beverage for people who cannot or choose not to consume alcohol. They are also a great base for mocktail recipes.

Through the de-alcoholization process of producing Fre, less than one half of one percent of alcohol remains in the wine.

The finished product is a fresh, delicious beverage with all of the characteristic aromas and flavors of premium wine, but with less than 0.5% alcohol and half the calories of traditional wine.

I think an alcohol removed cocktail is a great and convenient idea for any summer party! This will be the perfect addition to the menu for my husband’s birthday party. The mellon balls make it even more fun and festive.

If you don’t own a melon baller or have no time to scoop out the balls, you can just chop the fruit. If you choose to use a melon baller and would like to try and create the perfect balls, make sure you press hard into the flesh of the melon, so it touches the back of the baller, then scoop. This way you’ll avoid getting a flat surface.

Hope you like this easy summer drink! I shared how I sip smarter. What would you pair with Fre wine?
