Everyone loves a good Sangria. Sangria is a Spanish punch that typically consists of wine, fruit and other juices. But, what could be better than rum in a punch with wine, fruit juice and fruit? The combination possibilities with those ingredients are endless! Some of the Sangria with rum recipes on the internet are sheer genius, and you’ll feel like you’ve created a culinary masterpiece after you’ve crafted them yourself. It’s also pretty likely that if you serve these recipes at your next party, they’ll be talked about more than anything else you serve, even the food! Here are the best Sangria with rum recipes:

Classic Spanish Sangria

This is a good example of what a traditional Sangria recipe looks like. It calls for red wine, and it doesn’t specify which type of rum to use, but white or spiced rum work well in it. And, you can use whatever type of fruits you like, but apples and pears do a good job of soaking up the rum, and they taste great after you’ve already drank all the Sangria.


  • 1 lemon
  • 1 lime
  • 1 orange
  • 1 1/2 c. rum
  • 1/2 c. white sugar
  • 1 (750 ml) bottle dry red wine
  • 1 c. orange juice


  • Make sure the fruit, wine, rum and juice are well chilled
  • Slice the orange, lemon and lime into thin rounds
  • Place fruit slices in the bottom of a large glass pitcher
  • Add rum and sugar
  • Refrigerate for at least 2 hours
  • Before serving, crush the fruit with a wooden spoon
  • Stir in wine and orange juice
  • Add more sugar if needed
  • Serve

White Peach Sangria

This drink is very fruity and it has a light flavor compared to other Sangrias. It doesn’t require overnight chilling, either, so you can make it last-minute before your party. It’s a lot better when you use fresh fruit juice in it, as opposed to store bought. But, either way, this punch is a real crowd-pleaser!


  • 1 (750 ml) bottle white wine
  • 1 1/4 c. mango rum
  • 1 1/4 c. peach schnapps
  • 1 1/2 oz. Lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 oz. Lime juice
  • 1 1/2 oz. Orange juice
  • 2 1/2 oz. Lemon-lime soda
  • White peach slices (garnish)


  • Add large pieces of ice to a punch bowl until it’s just over half full
  • Add the wine, mango rum, peach schnapps, the fruit juices, and the lemon-lime soda
  • Garnish with slices of white peach
  • Serve
