Moscato Sangria

Beautiful evenings on the patio aren’t complete without a great cocktail or lemonade!

If we’re having friends over, I like to serve this Moscato 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.

Why You’ll Love It

  • Perfect for Summer – Chilled and refreshing, and doesn’t the fruit make it healthy, too?
  • So Easy – 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.
  • Make Ahead – This make-ahead sangria recipe is perfect for a stress-free day of entertaining, or to keep ready in the refrigerator for when you just really need an impromptu drink.

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!

  • Moscato – Or your favorite white wine. See the detailed list of suggestions below.
  • Brandy – I also use brandy for sangria! I love adding brandy to my sangria because it adds a richness in both color and flavor.
  • Club Soda – For the bubbles to top off your sangria.
  • Strawberries – Fresh is best for this recipe. Frozen strawberries will get soggy too quickly.
  • Peaches – Use a large can of peaches, sliced, and use the juice too! You can also use fresh peaches, or sub with any of your favorites, as suggested below.

Tips

  • Brandy is very strong, so proceed with caution when you mix it into this Moscato 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.
  • You can make an individual serving of this Moscato sangria if you’d like. 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!
  • Red and white sangria are both delicious all year long. In the summer I just prefer white sangria because it pairs so well with the summer fruits I have in the house.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is red sangria sweeter than white sangria?

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. In this Moscato sangria, the sweetness comes from the wine, fruits, and a hint of sweet juice thanks to the peaches.

What’s the best white wine for sangria?

A slightly sparkling white wine is perfect for 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!

Best White Wines for Sangria

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.

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

Serving Suggestions

  • 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!
  • Garnish with basil, mint, or any fresh herbs for a fragrant and welcoming touch.

  • RefrigerateSangria can usually last in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, though the fruit will become softer with time.
  • Freeze – Make a Moscato sangria slushie! Simply package the leftover sangria into an airtight container and then blend it in your blender to enjoy as frozen sangria.

    I love white sangrias in the summer too. Such a light, refreshing way to unwind in the evenings or sip by the pool on the weekend. Looks lovely!

  2. Hello! I love your posts and search your name when I’m having a get together for ideas. I’m going to make your Sangria for Saturday’s party and wasn’t sure how much Moscato to add. I purchased 3 Barefoot Moscato bottles which are 1.5 liters each and a bottle of seltzer which is 1 liter. Should I add all of this?
