White Wine Sangria, a blend packed with fresh summer fruits, is the ultimate summer beverage, inviting you to sit back, relax, and sip your way through the season.
What is White Wine Sangria
Sangria traditionally brings to mind a ruby-red blend, but we’re flipping the script with our White Wine Sangria. It’s a symphony of white wine, brandy, ripe berries, and succulent peaches – a sparkling joy that suits all occasions.
This sangria reinvents our citrus-infused White Sangria with an infusion of vivid summer flavors. This sweet, festive Sangria is a must-try if you’re hosting this summer. In mere minutes, you’ll have a fantastic beverage ready to serve. Want to save even more time? Use frozen fruits for a quick fix and an extra chill factor!
Also! I have to make a note of this. It’s a contradiction to make Sangria with white wine since the word Sangria means “bleeding (red),” but… you know… whatever. Red wine or white wine – it’s all delicious! ?
How To Make White Sangria
This sangria recipe is flexible, allowing you to adapt to your preference. Feel free to experiment with your favorite white wine and the fruits you have at hand.
- Begin by slicing strawberries, peaches, and apples. Aim for thin slices, except for the strawberries; halve these instead. I recommend about 6 cups of fruit to fill a quarter to a third of your pitcher.
- Pour chilled white wine, brandy, Cointreau (or Triple Sec), and sparkling water into the fruit-filled pitcher. Stir well and chill until ready to serve.
- Finally, garnish with limes and mint for a refreshing touch.
Tips For The Best Sangria
- Fruit Selection: The beauty of sangria lies in its versatility. While strawberries, peaches, and apples are suggested, you can swap in other fruits you love or have on hand.
- Chill, Chill, Chill: Ensure all ingredients, especially the wine, are well-chilled before mixing. This helps to keep your sangria refreshing and flavorful.
- Take Your Time: While you can enjoy the sangria immediately, letting it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours will enhance the flavors as the fruit and wine have more time to mingle.
Remember, the best sangria is the one tailored to your taste, so feel free to experiment until you find your perfect blend.
What Is The Best Wine for White Sangria
- Opt for a zesty white wine like Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc to bring the best out of your sangria.
Prepping Sangria Ahead of Time
- Yes, you can prepare your sangria a day in advance! Just remember to skip the seltzer water or club soda until just before serving.
