Springtime Sangria Recipes
Red or white? That's a question for sangria, too! Originating from Spain and now enjoyed around the world, sangria is a fun, easy-to-make drink to share with a group of friends — and you can concoct it with either red or white wine.
Just grab a pitcher and try out one of the delicious recipes below. We recommend letting the sangria sit for at least a few hours in your refrigerator before drinking, to give the fruit some time to soak up the wine.
Refreshing White Wine Sangria
This refreshing and punchy white sangria can be brought anywhere, from picnics to potlucks — or drink it as a treat with dinner. For this recipe we used the Winston & Sons Sauvingon Blanc, but would also recommend the 2016 Uenuku New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
- 1 bottle dry Sauvignon Blanc
- 1.5 cups chopped apple, strawberry, pineapple
- 1 cup St. Germain elderflower liqueur or gin
- 1/2 cup of pineapple juice
- 1/4 cup apricot nectar
- 1/2 cup seltzer
Traditional Spanish Sangria
- 1 bottle Rioja red wine
- 1.5 cups chopped oranges, apples
- 1/3 cup of orange juice
- 1/4 brandy
- 2 tablespoons white sugar
