The fresh fruit absorbs all the rich flavor from alcohol, making this party punch irresistible.

This cocktail is so easy to whip together, and it’s sure to impress.

So, enough talk. Let’s look at how to prepare this fresh and fruity white sangria.

What Is Sangria? 

Sangria is an old cocktail. While it calls Spain home, the act of mixing fruit, spices, and wine dates back to Roman times.

Today, there are so many variations that use both red and white wine for different occasions.

Spiced red wine and fruit make a wonderful Christmas cocktail. And this white sangria recipe is perfect for warmer weather.

Sangria stands the test of time because it’s super simple, flavorful, and ripe for variations.

You can swap out fruit for a more complex flavor profile or get creative with different types of wine and alcohol.

The flavors of sangria boil down to your current mood, and every punch bowl is different!

Ingredients for White Sangria

Here’s everything you need for this amazingly fruity white sangria:

  • Fruit – Fresh fruit infuses this punch with so much flavor! Use fresh peaches, apples, grapes, lime, and oranges. But you don’t have to stop there! You can use whatever fruits you love in this recipe.
  • White wine – Reach for your favorite brand of dry white wine. You don’t need something super expensive, but opt for something you enjoy drinking. Good suggestions include Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, or Sauvignon Blanc.
  • Apricot brandy – Adding apricot brandy adds a punch of fruity flavor. Some good brands include Rothman & Winter Orchard Apricot Liqueur or Marie Brizard Apry. You can substitute it with triple sec in a pinch.
  • Peach schnapps – For more summery peachy flavors, peach schnapps is a must. It adds a kiss of sweetness with an intense burst of peach flavors. Mr. Stacks or Aspen’s Peach Schnapps are wonderful options.
  • Ice – White sangria, like any good white wine, is best nice and chilled. Never add the ice right into the punch bowl, as it will water it down. Add ice to a glass and ladle in the sangria.
  • Prosecco or sparkling wine – Processo takes this white sangria to new heights. After ladling sangria into individual glasses, top it off with a pour of Processo (or sparkling wine) for a fresh, bubbly finish.

3. Chill. Cover, and place it in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight. As it chills, the fruits infuse their flavors with the alcohol. The longer it chills, the better.

4. Serve. Add ice to a glass (optional) and fill it 3/4 full with white sangria. Be sure each glass gets a little fresh fruit, and then top it with Prosecco or sparkling wine. Enjoy!

Tips and Tricks

Want to make your white sangria the talk of the town? Check out these easy tips and tricks:

  • The colder, the better. White sangria tastes best when everything is nice and chilled. Keep the sangria cold by adding frozen fruit to the mix, and place your serving glasses in the freezer for up to 2 hours. Add ice to individual glasses (but never the serving bowl!)
  • Dial down the sweetness. Add more brandy if your white sangria needs a little more sweetness. For more sweetness without the added booze, powdered sugar is a great option, too.
  • Cut down on the booze. This sangria packs a powerful, boozy punch! To lower the overall alcohol content, swap out Prosecco with sparkling water or ginger ale.

Can You Make Sangria in Advance?

Absolutely! Sangria only gets better with time. For the best flavors, whip it up the night before and allow it to chill in the refrigerator overnight.

Just add the bubbles at the very end. If you allow your sangria to chill with Processo or sparkling wine, it’ll go flat.

White sangria is the perfect drink for any party! This easy recipe is made with white wine, fruit, apricot brandy, peach schnapps, and Prosecco for a real treat.

Ingredients

  • 1 peach, sliced

  • 1 apple, cored and sliced

  • 1/2 cup grapes, whole or halved

  • 1 lime, sliced

  • 1 orange, sliced

  • 1 (750-ml) bottle of white wine

  • 1/4 cup apricot brandy

  • 1/4 cup peach schnapps

  • Ice

  • Prosecco or sparkling wine, to top up

Instructions

  • Wash and slice the peach, apple, grapes, lime, and orange. Add them to a pitcher.
  • Pour in the white wine, apricot brandy, and peach schnapps. Stir it to mix.
  • Refrigerate it for at least 4 hours, ideally overnight. This allows the fruits to infuse their flavors into the liquid.
  • Pour about 3/4 of the sangria mixture into glasses, ensuring each glass gets some fruit. Top it with Prosecco or sparkling wine to give it a bubbly finish.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Notes

  • White Wine. Go for a quality white wine like Sauvignon Blanc, chardonnay, or riesling. Albariño, gewürztraminer, viognier, and pinot gris also work wonders.
  • Fruity Mix-Ins. While the citrus fruits provided are the backbone of this sangria, feel free to jazz it up. Incorporate up to two cups of your favorite fruits.
  • Keep it Bubbly. To maintain that effervescence, stir in your Prosecco just before you serve.
  • Ice or No Ice. You can enjoy white sangria on the rocks or in a chilled glass.
  • Make it Ahead. For a richer taste, make the sangria a day in advance, but hold off on adding anything carbonated.
