What fruits go in Sangria?
My sangria recipes tend to be seasonally focused I use fresh fruit that is in season. For Summer sangria these are some of my favorite fruits to add.
- Peaches- ripe juicy peaches sliced.
- Strawberries- ripe, hulled and sliced.
- Blueberries- add them in as is.
- Raspberries- add them in as is. Raspberries tend to break down and can get stuck in straws but they add a great flavor.
- Pineapple– fresh pineapple cut in to chunks works best. Save the juice and add it in as well.
- Oranges- Sliced and juicy adds a great flavor to sangria year round.
- Limes– Sliced and juicy. Adds a tart flavor with a little sweetness and acidity.
- Lemons- lemon slices also add a tart flavor with acid.
- Watermelon– fresh watermelon cut into chunks adds a great flavor.
What is the best type of white wine for sangria?
When you are looking for a white wine for sangria you will want a drier wine that is crisp and fresh but has more acid.
- Sauvignon Blanc
- Pinot Grigio
- Grenache Blanc
The best place to buy wine and stay on budget is Trader Joe’s. I like this Kono Sauvignon Blanc it’s under $10. I also like the Griphone Pinot Grigio which is under $8 a bottle.
What liquor goes in Sangria?
Traditional sangria is made with brandy. But there are lots of variations of sangria recipes. I usually like to add a sweeter fruit liqueur (like peach schnapps or grand mariner) with a harder alcohol like vodka or rum. It’s always best to soak or marinate your fruit in the liquor for an hour or 2 before adding the wine.
- Peach Schnapps
- Grand Marnier
- Triple Sec

How do you make a white wine Summer sangria?
This Summer sangria recipe is so good you are going to want to make it by the pitcher. In a bowl add sliced fruit and top with sugar, peaches, strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. Mix together and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Place fruit mixture in a pitcher and pour in your white wine. Refrigerate until ready to serve. The longer it sits the tastier it will be, within reason.
Feeling fancy? Rim the glasses with pink rimming sugar before pouring.
Want a less sweet sangria? You can skip the sugar and just soak the fruit in peach schnapps and vodka. You may see some recipes use simple syrup or fruit juices. Adding sugar to the fruit is an easy alternative to this.
You can also add club soda or seltzer. I like to put a bottle of cold seltzer on the side of my sangria pitcher incase anyone would like to add some. Adding the seltzer to the sangria as it sits it can go flat.
A sparkling white is also a great choice. If using sparkling add the wine just before serving. Have a larger crowd this Summer sangria recipe can easily be doubled or tripled and added to a drink dispenser.
