Expert Tips

  • The nice thing about this fruity, refreshing drink is that inexpensive liqueur, vodka and wine can be used because the flavor doesn't rely solely upon alcohol. Try Triple Sec for the orange liqueur and a Chablis Blanc or Chardonnay for the dry white wine.
  • For a decorative effect, cut notches out of the citrus peel on some of the fruit slices.

More About This Recipe
  • I always feel a slightly apologetic saying “White Wine Sangria” – Sangria means a red wine punch.

    However, the phrase employs more verbal economy than “Sangria made with white wine instead of red” – that’s a mouth-full!  Either way, White Wine Sangria is a delicious, easy to make, crowd pleasing cocktail.

    A word on liquor - this is not the time to whip out a nice bottle of Sancerre – a bottle of inexpensive white wine is the best base for this recipe.  The recipe also calls for vodka and an orange liqueur.  This is a great opportunity to use up the fruit flavored vodka lurking in the back of the cupboard or that passionfruit liqueur purchased last fall in a fit of tropical whimsy.

    I have a couple of tricks for serving Sangria – one is to fill the glasses ahead of time with cut fruit, so every glass looks uniform and beautiful.

    Sangria is typically served over ice, but I have a nice little trick.  I always make my pitcher of Sangria early in the day, and let it hang out in the fridge, tightly covered, so all the flavors marry and it is well chilled.  However, at least half of the fruit in my recipe is frozen, so often no ice is needed at all!

    Hope you enjoy the White Wine Sangria!

    Cheers, Michelle
