Sangria is one of my favorite cocktails. Traditionally it is made with wine, liquor and fruit juices. There are tons of different ways to make it making the combinations endless.
What’s fun about that is you can create a base recipe and switch it up every season. One of my original cocktail recipes was this red, white and blush sangria. I have become known for it in my friend group during the Summer. If you are looking for a sangria for the holidays check out this Christmas Sangria.
My friend Amy from Atta Girl Says and l love Fall cocktails. Besides the foliage it might just be out favorite thing about Fall. Have some extra cider from your sangria? Make these apple cider mimosas. I also cannot wait to try these apple cider mules.

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.

Do you have a non alcoholic version?
No sorry. I’m sure you could maybe add some caramel and spices to apple cider. The wine makes it a Sangria maybe substitute in a seltzer.
What if I can’t find frozen cranberries at the store? Can I just use fresh ones? Thank you.
You definitely can.
What size should the bottle of wine be? Standard 750ml?
yes the standard size!
Can you use fresh cranberries if you can’t find frozen ones?
Fresh work just fine.
Does plain vodka taste fine?
It’s not as good because of the caramel flavor but it’s still good.
Have you made this with Fireball instead of Vodka yet? I was thinking about using it or half Fireball & half Caramel Vodka for a party I am attending this weekend.
