Ingredients

One 750-milliliter bottle sparkling white wine

1 1/2 cups soda water

1 cup melon liqueur, such as Midori

1 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves, large leaves torn into 1/2-inch pieces

2 small green apples, such as Granny Smith, cored and cut into 1/2-inch pieces (about 3 cups)

2 kiwis, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices (about 1/2 cup)

1/4 honeydew melon, seeds removed, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces (about 2 cups)

Directions

  1. Stir together the wine, soda water and liqueur in a 3-quart pitcher. Add the mint, apples, kiwis and melon, and cover the pitcher with plastic wrap. Refrigerate the sangria to chill, at least 4 hours up to overnight.
  2. To serve, fill 8 to 10 glasses halfway with ice, then pour the sangria and fruit into each glass.
