Best White Sangria Recipes

Sangria, a Spanish tipple typically made with red wine, can actually be enjoyed with white wine. While this goes slightly against the traditional grain, it is a truly delicious drink and absolutely perfect for those blissful summer days. Luckily for you, we have a wealth of easy white sangria recipes so you can be the go-to house for holiday fun.

Easy Traditional White Sangria

To make one pitcher, you will need:

  • 1 medium lime (slice them thinly into circles)
  • 1 medium lemon (slice them thinly into circles)
  • 25g organic cane sugar
  • 60ml apple brandy
  • ½ green apple (chop them into little pieces)
  • 1 medium nectarine (thinly slice them)

  • Ice
  • Fresh mint


1. Put the lime, lemon and sugar into a pitcher.
