    Fruity Sangria Recipe

    It’s official – we’re spending every night on our patio. It’s such a peaceful area to relax and an enjoyable place to entertain.

    Summer Sangria – The Perfect Party Drink

    Beautiful evenings on the patio aren’t complete without a great cocktail or lemonade! If we’re having friends over, I like to serve peach sangria from a pitcher so that guests can refill at will and I don’t have to run in and out of the kitchen frequently.

    The party can flow easily without the constant filter of people disappearing to get a new drink. Just set the dispenser or pitcher on the table outside, and let everyone enjoy. And believe me, they will! I love summer sangria and the fruit flavors are always so popular with guests!

    How To Serve Summer Sangria

    Sangria is always best served in a clear glass pitcher or drink dispenser. It showcases the beauty of the fruits and allows guests to serve themselves! 

    Personally, I prefer a pitcher because it’s easier to get some of that delicious soaked fruit in my glass. That’s half the fun of drinking sangria! 

    What’s The Best White Wine For Sangria? 

    For this recipe, I prefer to use a slightly sparkling white wine for my white sangria. This recipe uses Moscato, which I love using for sangria because it has a lighter alcohol content and a sweeter, fruitier flavor. It makes it perfect for sipping with friends! 

    Of course, you can use a variety of white wines with this recipe. It’s totally personal preference, so I suggest you experiment and see what you like best! You may find that you prefer a more traditional, dry white wine to balance the sweetness of your fruit choices.

    The best white wines for sangria: 

    • Moscato
    • Prosecco
    • Pinot Grigio
    • Riesling
    • Sauvignon Blanc

    Brandy for Sangria

    I also use brandy for sangria! I love adding brandy to my sangria because it adds a richness in both color and flavor. It’s also very strong, so proceed with caution when you mix it into this summer sangria! While some recipes call for peach schnapps and a triple sec such as Grand Marnier and the like, you know my motto: simple is simply the best.

    Red Sangria vs. White Sangria – Which One Is Sweeter?

    These two drinks, while similar in name, have a lot of differences. The sweetness in red sangria comes mostly from the juice and fruits because dry red wine is typically used for the alcohol. For this fruity sangria recipe, the sweetness comes from the wine, fruits, and a hint of  sweet juice thanks to the peaches.

    Due to this, I would say that neither of them is particularly sweeter than the other. They both have a refreshing enjoyable flavor, just in different ways. The sweetness level also depends on the amount of each ingredient included.

    In the summer I just prefer white sangria because it pairs so well with the summer fruits I have in the house.

    How To Make Peach Sangria

    This fruity sangria recipe couldn’t be easier! Making peach sangria is as easy as combining all the ingredients in a pitcher or drink dispenser. Simply stir everything together and allow to marinate for 4+ hours or overnight.

    You can certainly mix the liquid ingredients of your sangria the night before you serve it. However, I often prefer to wait until 4 hours before serving to add my fruit so that it doesn’t get too soggy.

    What Kind Of Fruit Goes In White Sangria? 

    I always include fresh or even frozen peaches in my white wine sangria, but I’ll often add in whatever additional fresh fruit I currently have on hand. I honestly think anything goes in this fruity sangria recipe, there are so many fun options! I especially love the texture of white peaches in the summer- so good!
