What is white sangria?

Sangria is a Spanish drink made by macerating fresh fruit in red wine, brandy, and spices.

White sangria is pretty much the same idea, only it’s made with white wine!

Why this is the best white sangria recipe

  1. Tastes amazing: It’s just sweet enough, with plenty of seasonal fruit.
  2. Few ingredients: You’ll only need a handful of basic ingredients to make it.
  3. Easy to make: It’s just a matter of dumping everything into a pitcher and stirring!
  4. Fun: The red, white, and blue color palette make this so festive and celebratory!

What does white wine sangria taste like?

Mostly this drink will taste like whatever kind of wine you start with.

But there’s also a little bit of fruit juice, brandy, and sugar to make it just sweet enough.

The fruits also lend some of their summery flavor to the mix, so you get a hint of strawberry, blueberry, and pear.


Ingredients for making white sangria, with text labels.

Wine: Any kind of white wine will do, but I especially like Sauvignon Blanc because it’s so light and refreshing.

Juice: Choose something very light in color, such as white grape juice.

Brandy: I like pear brandy because it picks up on the sliced pears that are in the white sangria. But Triple Sec is a great option as well!

Sugar: This ingredient is optional, but if you like your sangria a little sweeter it’s nice to add some.

Fruit: A combination of strawberries, blueberries, and sliced pears (cut into the cutest star shapes!) give this drink a festive feel.

Sparkling water: Another optional ingredient, but I like a little bit of fizz!

How to make this white wine sangria recipe

You won’t believe how easy it is to make this special drink!

Step 1: Combine the liquids

Step 3: Add fruit

Lastly, throw in the fruit.

Adding berries to a pitcher of white sangria.

I like a combination of sliced strawberries, blueberries, and pears. Cut the pears horizontally so you can see the star-shaped seeds in the center, then just trim them into shape with a star-shaped cookie cutter.

How to serve white sangria

This drink is ready to serve immediately, but it’s sometimes nice to let it chill for a few hours so all the flavors can mingle.

I like to pour it over ice, and top it off with a little bit of sparkling water for fizz.

Expert tips

Use a wine you like: The wine is the biggest factor in what the final drink will taste like, so make sure you choose one you know you like. I used a Sauvignon Blanc, but a Pino Grigio, Riesling, or Vouvray would also be nice.

Sweeten it to taste: If you’re using a sweeter-tasting wine, you might want to leave the sugar out. Or if your wine is very dry, you may want to add more. Honey or Agave nectar could also be used.

Sub in other fruits: Try using stone fruits such as peaches, plums, and cherries instead. Or add citrus, such as lemons, limes, and pink grapefruits. And if you can get your hands on some star fruit (aka: carambola) you don’t even need the cookie cutter!

Let guests serve themselves: Mix up a big pitcher (this recipe scales perfectly) and leave it out on the buffet so guests can refill their own glasses. Put an ice bucket, tongs, and a few cans of sparkling water nearby so they can keep things cold and fizzy!

Frequently asked questions

Can you make white sangria ahead?

You definitely can, and it’s nice to give all the flavors a chance to meld, marry, and intensify as they chill.

How long does it keep?

It’s fine to leave this out for a few hours on your buffet line, but if you have leftovers they should go into the fridge. They’ll keep there for close to a week.

What is the serving size?

With all the ice, fruit, and other add-ins, you can easily get 6 generous glasses from a batch.

If you want a bigger batch, just x2, 3, or 4 the recipe.
