Beside how easy sangria recipes are to make, the other thing I truly love about them is that they are meant to be shared.

I made this white sangria for my neighbors for our first book club meeting. It is refreshing, and perfect for a summer’s day. White Sangria is a backbone fall back recipe – once you learn it, you can take all sorts of great twists on it.

And you have a guest coming over who loves red wine, make them my Red Sangria!

This white sangria recipe is made with vodka and it could not be more simple.

  • Start out with a white wine that you love. I used a Pinot Grigio, and the gentle sweetness of it paired perfectly the other ingredients.
  • Next, citrus vodka. I really like Eddy’s Lemon Vodka. It is sweet, without being over powering.
  • Add some orange liqueur. I love using Cointreau.
  • Then add simple syrup. Taste the recipe before adding simple syrup. If it is sweet enough without it for you, skip it. You can always put it on the side if your book club friends like their drinks sweeter.
  • Finally, fresh fruit! For this, I used fresh oranges, lemons, raspberries, and sliced strawberries.

As mentioned above, I went with a citrus vodka for this recipe, but that’s not a hard fast rule.

You could also use Brandy or Rum and it would work great in this recipe.


Though this recipe is so easy, there are a few things that help it out a little bit.

  1. Add only half the simple syrup to start. You can leave the rest on the side for guests to sweeten their drink (as suggested above).
  2. Chill for at least an hour. This drink is best cold.
  3. Buy extra fruit for serving. If you let this sit overnight the fruit will deteriorate. Buy extra for glasses that will look fresh and beautiful.

White Sangria Recipe

Serves: 6 people
(tap # to scale)
Prep: 10 minutes
Total: 10 minutes
This White Sangria Recipe comes together fast with just a few ingredients and is so perfect for entertaining. A big pitcher of white wine sangria is refreshing, delicious, and so easy to make!


  • 750 ml Pinot Grigio (or other white wine you like)
  • 1/2 cup citrus vodka (I love the sweetness Eddy’s Lemon Vodka adds)
  • 1/4 cup orange liqueur
  • 1/4 cup simple syrup (optional, see note)
  • 1 orange sliced
  • 1 lemon sliced
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 cup raspberries


  • Mix together all of the liquid ingredients.
  • Add in the fruit.  Let chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour, or up to 10 hours.
  • Serve cold.


The type of wine and vodka you use will greatly change the sweetness of this recipe.  Additionally, sweetness in a cocktail is such a personal taste. I would mix all the liquid ingredients and then taste to decide if you need to use all, part, or none of the simple syrup.

    Is there anyway to make this virgin?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Sure! Maybe some NA sparkling wine, replace the vodka with orange juice, and then taste it at the end to see if you need a little more simple syrup since we are cutting the Cointreau.
