White Sangria Recipe – An easy white wine sangria that is crisp, refreshing, and delicious. Great for entertaining or just because!
A classic cocktail is a must for entertaining. I love having the ingredients to make a vodka cranberry on hand for a party. Or something else that is simple. A vodka soda that you make with La Croix for a little extra flavor, is always a hit.
But sometimes you want to go all out. You want more than just a simple drink. Enter sangria! This easy sangria recipe is a great red wine version. And today I am here with a white wine sangria. Sangria is always cool, delicious and refreshing!
White sangria is fresh and fruity. You can use whatever citrus you want, but I went with oranges, lemons and lime. I also added in a few strawberries for color and because I love them. A great refreshing combination!
The nice thing about sangria is you can mix up the fruit with whatever you have on hand or whatever is in season. Raspberries, pineapple, blueberries, even watermelon would all be delicious. They soak up the flavor of the drink and are a great to eat once you finish the drink.
What is Sangria?
Sangria has a Spanish origin. It is served like a punch. It is usually made with red wine and chopped fruits. Often it has an added alcohol like brandy or maybe orange juice. But there is nothing wrong making a white sangria with a great bottle of white wine.
I think it all depends on what you are serving it with, and what kind of mood you are in! I am traditionally a red wine drinker all the way. But this white wine sangria is so refreshing and great on a hot summer day, or when serving something light like Chicken Skewers for dinner.
How to Make Sangria
Making sangria is very easy. You just have to chop the fruits and mix in the wine and other alcohol. You do want to make it early in the day so the fruits and all the flavors can blend together. You don’t it to just be wine with fruit floating in it. You want it to be something special! Make sure to add the fizzy part at the end, or it defeats the purpose.
For this white sangria recipe I used a bottle of pinot grigio. In the morning I sliced up an orange, a lemon, and a lime. To compliment the citrus flavor I mixed in some triple sec. Then I let it sit for the day. Right before serving I mixed in sprite for more citrus flavor and plenty of fizz.
Sangria is great served anytime of year. You can always find citrus in season, so I love this white sangria all year round. So the next time you are having a get together – break out of your bottle of wine and case of beer. Make this white wine sangria instead!
This Tropical Bay Breeze Cocktail looks so easy to make and great for a get together. I am all about breaking out of the glass of wine as my go to drink!
