White sangria It is the perfect and fruity summer cocktail. A combination of white wine, mango, strawberries, raspberries and orange, it is light, sweet, easy to make and presents very well.
This white sangria recipe is the perfect cocktail for spring and summer because it has all the fruit vibes. It's also very easy to do and it seems like you put in a lot more effort than you actually did. Always a bonus.
Why do I love this white sangria recipe? Because it is crisp, fresh, delicious, and can be prepared before a party, barbecue, or outdoor gathering. In fact, all the flavors combine wonderfully while sitting.
How is sangria made with white wine?
If you watch the video below, you will see how easy is to make white wine sangria. But here is the quick version in three steps:
- Slice lots of fruit (I love mango and berries) and throw it in a jar
- Add a little Cointreau, Grand Marnier or other orange-flavored liquor along with a bottle of white wine.
- Cold and let the flavors mix.
The sangria (and specifically this white sangria) is a casual and not fussy cocktail. That's why I love it!

Which wine is better for white sangria?
No need to splurge on expensive or high quality wines. I usually opt for a Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, but any dry and fruity white wine will do. Anyway, you will let it rest in the refrigerator for a few hours to absorb all the goodness of the fruit.
In fact, because the white sangria is soaked in the fridge for a few hours, I also don't add any additional sugar. I like my cocktails on the skinny side, but if you like it a little sweeter, feel free to add a pinch of sugar or stevia.
One last indentation tip
However, one thing I forgot to mention in the video is that it's probably best to pour it into glasses with ice. Don't add ice to the jar because that will dilute it, but definitely pour it over ice before serving. Not only does it keep white sangria cold on a warm day, it also keeps you from drinking too fast.
I made the mistake of drinking the large glass you see below without ice and it was probably the equivalent of two glasses of white wine (which is a lot for me). About 15 minutes later, I proceeded to take a beautiful nap on my patio. Enjoy!
