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.
