Red, White, and Blue Easy White Wine Sangria Recipe


White Wine Sangria with berries

Celebrate summer with this easy white wine sangria recipe in red, white and blue! Just two ingredients and fruit combine for a quick summer cocktail.  Serve this fun summer cocktail in glassware from our sponsor, Luigi Bormioli.

An easy white wine sangria recipe is the perfect summer cocktail! Just two ingredients and your favorite red, white and blue fruit are all you need to make this festive drink for a 4th of July party!

I discovered sangria a decade ago in a Spanish restaurant in Athens, Greece. I was in Athens studying law and one of my fellow students had found this restaurant by chance.  It was one of the most memorable meals of my life and began a love with sangria.

Sangria is a wine based drink mixed with other alcohols and fruit.  It is traditionally made with a red wine and the entire mix is left for hours so the flavors can meld like my Easy Sangria Recipe.

When made properly, it tastes like an adult Kool-Aid. It’s delicious and refreshing and the perfect summer cocktail recipe.

Ingredients for Sangria

A few years ago I made a peach sangria and it was the first time I’d tried an easy white wine sangria.

Then I added a pineapple sangria to my repertoire. The pineapple sangria has soda pop in it and I’m not a huge fan of adding soda to sangria. But it’s  still one of my favorite sangria recipes.

This year, I wanted an easy sangria recipe festive for Memorial Day and the 4th of July.  So over Memorial Day weekend I made this easy red, white and blue white wine sangria recipe.

I used only two alcohols  – a white Moscato wine and Triple Sec licqueur – to make this quick and easy.  Both of these are extremely sweet so I didn’t feel the need to add any extra sweetener like simple syrup or soda pop.

Luigi Bormioli glassware

Sangria would traditionally be served in a wine glass, but this was for an outdoor get together so I opted instead to serve it in my new Luigi Bormioli glasses that I love. These are from the Michelangelo collection.

You may recall this fun dirt cake centerpiece I made for Mother’s Day in a Luigi Bormioli footed serving bowl, which is from the same collection. I love that they match!

I’m totally in love with this glassware company. Their glasses look like crystal, but are in fact lead-free, affordable and widely available. You can even order online and get free shipping – yay!

I now realize I need to order a set of stemless wineglasses for my summer sangria making!

White Wine Sangria with berries

Make the sangria in a pitcher up to a day ahead of time, or just before your guests arrive. This recipe is more for fun and doesn’t really need to meld much.

I used strawberries and blueberries, but you could also use apples, cherries or blackberries to keep with the red, white, and blue theme.
