This is absolutely the perfect easy sangria recipe for Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Presidents Day, and Tuesday! This sangria is amazing for an afternoon by the pool or a dinner party with friends and family.
- A sweet white wine – I prefer Moscato
- Silver tequila
- Strawberry Nectar – basically like fruit juice you can find in the Latin food section of your grocery store
- Lemon-lime soda – optional but worth it!
If you don’t want to use Moscato, try a Riesling or Pinot Grigio! They’ll be a little drier and less sweet than a Moscato. These optional are sweeter than a Chardonnay, which will typically be very dry.
If you like your sangria extra sweet, you could even add in some simple syrup. However, I find the wine and fruit nectar does the job just fine for my taste.
I love using all over my favorite fruits for summer, but you can swap out for the ones you like best. Not a fan of raspberries? Blackberries or marionberries are a great swap out.
Sangria is all about the waiting game. So be sure to make this a day before you need it! The longer the fruit sits in the wine, the more the flavors begin to meld together. Don’t be afraid to make this a full 24 hours before your party starts!
How to Make Sangria
- Start by pouring your bottle of wine, the tequila, and the can of strawberry nectar into a large pitcher. Give that all a stir to combine it together.
- Then, add in your fresh fruit. That’s the easy part. The hard part is putting your sangria in the fridge to chill for at least 8 hours. Ideally, you want to let it sit overnight for the best flavor profile.
- Place fresh raspberries on a baking sheet or in a dish and freeze them overnight too. (I’ll explain why below.)
- The next day, pour the sangria into wine glasses and add some of the fruit from the pitcher. If you used the raspberry trick, add some frozen raspberries to each glass too!
- If you’re looking for some bubbles, add a splash of lemon-lime soda or sparkling water to the top of each glass when serving!
I like freezing the raspberries overnight while the sangria is marinating in the refrigerator to act as festive ice cubes. If you forget this step, don’t worry! Your sangria will be nice and cool as long as you keep it in the fridge between glasses.
