Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 750 ml bottle sauvignon blanc or other dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup Calvados or other apple brandy
  • 2 green apples
  • 1 1/2 cups blueberries
  • 6-7 slices watermelon cut into 1/2" slices
  • 2 cups club soda or sparkling water

Instructions

  • If you have the star ice cube molds, fill them with water and freeze until you have about 3 cups of star shaped ice cubes.
  • In a small saucepan combine the honey and water over medium heat and cook, stirring constantly until mixture becomes a honey simple syrup. Remove from heat to cool.
  • Add the calvados, honey simple syrup and bottle of wine to a large pitcher.

Prepare the fruit:

  • Slice the apple into 1/4" thin slices. Use the star cutter to press out stars in the apple flesh until you have about 1 cup of apple stars. Add the stars to the sangria.
  • Use the star cutter to press out stars in the watermelon slices and add them to the sangria.  Add the blueberries to the sangria, stir and refrigerate for 3 hours or until very cold.

To Serve:

  • Add the sparkling water to the pitcher along with the star shaped ice cubes and serve.
