If you love summer cocktails! as much as I do, you’re going to love this recipe. Summer is perfect for pina coladas and even champagne cocktails but you can never go wrong with white wine sangria. It’s fruity and sweet and totally cools me off when the summer sun is beating down. Plus, the fact that it’s filled with fruit makes it good for me, right?
It’s also perfect for a girl’s night but since we can’t have any of those lately, I can make this sangria recipe for my zoom happy hours instead. (Side note: Remind me never to take girl’s night out for granted again). Because it’s red, white and blue, you can even whip up a batch for the Fourth Of July! Never had sangria? You’ve been missing out!
What is sangria?
Sangria is a wine based drink that originated in Spain. So if you’re wondering if sangria is alcoholic, the answer is definitively yes! You’ll also find fruit and sometimes sweeteners, juices and other liqueurs.
The fun part about making sangria is that there are so many different kinds of fruits that’ll taste delish in your sangria recipe. Here are just a few of the more popular ones:
What kind of wine do you use for sangria?
Traditionally sangria has been made with red wine but now everyone has discovered that sangria blanca, or sangria with white wine, tastes pretty darn good too! If you’re using white, dry white wines are best.
You’re getting thirsty now, aren’t you? Ready to mix up a batch of your own?
How To Make White Wine Sangria With Berries
Start by pitting your cherries and cutting them in half (if you have a cherry pitter, it makes this step super easy).
Next, cut about two thirds of the blueberries in half.
Finally, remove the leaves from your strawberries and slice them.
Now mix the fruit with a bottle of white wine and refrigerate for 30 minutes. This helps to bring out the fruity flavor. Finally, add orange liqueur, bourbon and ginger beer.
How delicious does this look?!
It’s finally time to try this white wine sangria for yourself!
These are almost too pretty to drink but I’ve never let that stop me before.
If you just want a glass or two for yourself, you can half the recipe. You can also double it if you’re having a party because we will have parties again eventually!
This recipe is so good you’ll want to make it again and again. It’s such a fun drink for summer (and it doesn’t hurt that all the summer fruits are so cheap right now). Your berry sangria should stay good for about three days so go ahead and mix up a big batch!
