Cocktail Hour: Watermelon & Meyer Lemon Sangria

It's not a party without a signature cocktail, right? Even for the smallest gatherings, I always like to have a special creation. Last weekend, for the English Garden Style Luncheon, I concocted a  Watermelon & Meyer Lemon Sangria. This is not just any ordinary sangria, it has an unexpected array of spectacular flavors  - watermelon, meyer lemon, vanilla, lime and mint, which all come together making it a refreshingly light cocktail that tastes delish!  Keep reading for the recipe!

And what's a signature cocktail without a pretty bar set-up?  I continued the garden theme over to the bar and highlighted the pink drink with peonies.
