Wow! This one's a keeper! I primarily followed the recipe, but made the following modifications: 1. skipped the cognac and used only peach schnapps and 1 Black Box sauvignon blanc wine (equals 4 bottles). 2. Added 6 sliced fresh peaches, 2 sliced ripe mangoes, 2 pints of strawberries, 2 sliced oranges, and 2 sliced lemons. Put mixture evenly in 2 covered pitchers and let it sit in fridge for 2 days, stirring occasionally. Turned a beautiful light peachy/pink color. Served over ice in individual glasses, topped off with gingerale (3/4 sangria, 1/4 gingerale) according to individual taste in each glass. (No punch bowl) Enough for several days of drinking, so don't dilute with gingerale until serving time. I even drank a glass on day 3 without any gingerale and it was amazingly good. Unbelievably delicious! Tasted even better on the third day...and the boozy soaked fruit was YUMMY to eat.-03 Jun 2010

This is a fantastic recipe! Served it at a bridal shower and it was a real hit. I did add red raspberries just because they looked so pretty. Next time I will make double!-25 Aug 2003

This was a HUGH hit at my Bunco gathering! I ran out of the punch. I used only three bottles at first then added the four bottle as the punch dwindled down. I used only two oranges, it was plenty. This is a KEEPER!!!!!!-27 Feb 2002

The best wine for white Sangria

White wine does an excellent job of highlighting the fruit flavors in Sangria, as well as bringing their own unique taste and freshness into the mix. The outcome of a Sangria is highly dependent on your location, as the very best Sangria is homemade using local ingredients. There are many white wines that are ideal for use in Sangria, but overall you want a dry and acidic wine.

This will help balance out the sweetness of the fruit and create a very aromatic result. Wine used for Sangria is rarely oak aged as this can create a flavor that overpowers the delicate combination you’re trying to achieve. Always look out for wines as little oaked as possible, so you keep your Sangria cocktail light.

Pinot Grigio is an ideal choice for making Sangria, this popular wine of Italy is dry, light, and incredibly refreshing. Many people love to enjoy a cool glass of Pinot Grigio on a hot summer day, so imagine how much more refreshing it is with the addition of ripe fresh fruit. This Italian wine often features flavors of lemon, lime and green apple, and is perfect for combining with your chosen sliced fruits.

Pinot Grigio commonly features a punchy acidity which is perfect if you don’t like your cocktails too sweet. This zesty wine doesn’t have too strong of a flavor alone, so it won’t overpower the other ingredients in your white Sangria recipe.

One popular German wine makes another excellent selection for Sangria, as it’s perfectly dry and has a wonderful tangy flavor. Riesling is ideal for mixing into a fruit punch, as it often carries notes of peach and apple. Peach is a fantastic choice as a fruit in your Sangria, especially if you can get it locally and fresh, so pair it with Reisling for a deliciously aromatic combination. E

njoy the flowery perfumed aromas in Riesling in your white wine Sangria, this wine from Germany is rarely oaked so it carries a freshness that’s perfect for your favorite summer cocktail.


The Best White Sangria

Yield: 6-8 servings

Prep Time: 10 mins

This new twist on the classic Spanish sangria will make your party sizzle. This simple and quick recipe is infused with fresh oranges and lemons which makes for a very refreshing, irresistible drink.

Ingredients:

4 cups white wine (I use inexpensive Pinot Grigio)
¼ cup Triple Sec (any orange liqueur will work)
¼ cup Agave
1 lemon, thinly sliced
1 orange, thinly sliced
½ bottle of champagne/sparkling wine (chilled and inexpensive)


What Wine is Best for White Sangria?

There’s no need to splurge on expensive or high quality wine. I usually opt for a Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, but any fruity, dry white wine will do. You’re just gonna let it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours anyway, to soak up all that fruit goodness.

In fact, because the white sangria soaks in the refrigerator for a few hours, I also don’t add any additional sugar. I like my cocktails on the skinny side, but if you’d like it a bit sweeter, feel free to add a pinch of sugar or stevia.
