Easy Sangria Recipe

Updated on December 3, 2011

Fruit Chilling in White Wine Sangria


Looking for an easy Sangria recipe where you don’t need a lot of different types of alcohol or special ingredients? This recipe is a no-brainer. Tasty and easy to make. Lots of recipes call for several types of liquors, but you can make this simple recipe and get a pretty tasty Sangria. You can modify this recipe for white wine.

You will need:


Fresh or Frozen Fruit (thawed)

Red Wine

Sugar (optional) or Fruit Juice

Ginger Ale or Lemon Lime Soda

I use mainly citrus fruits.

The exact fruits that I used with this recipe were 2 oranges, 1 grapefruit, 1 lemon, 2 lime, 1 apple (all fresh) and about a cup of thawed frozen berries (strawberries, raspberries). You can really use any kind of fruit. I make sure to fill up half the pitcher with the fruit. I cut the fruit but leave the skins on. It is up to you if you want to peel your fruit. If you don't have time to chill your Sangria, I would peel and crush the fruit.

Cut up the fruit and put it in the pitcher. Place a half a cup of sugar over the fruit. The sugar is really optional and for those that have a sweet tooth. You can add some fruit juice instead.

Pour a bottle of red wine into the pitcher. I used Merlot, but you can really use just about any wine you like.

Chill in the fridge overnight at least. It actually tastes better the longer it is in the fridge.

Right before serving, top off your sangria with some Ginger Ale, Lemon Lime Soda or Club Soda. I prefer this drink served on ice.

You can use white wine with the same recipe. Just keep in mind that the color will change, so you end up with a pink looking Sangria when you mix strawberries with white wine. You will need several batches or a very large bowl for large crowds. You can chill your Sangria right in the punch bowl, if your fridge will accommodate.

So easy to make and fruity and yummy, enjoy.

      If I can make this, anyone can. I am very challenged in the kitchen.
