What Alcohol Does Sangria Have In It?

Sangria is always made with wine. Whether it’s red or white wine depends on the type of sangria you’re making. Red sangria uses red wine, whereas white sangria uses white wine. You can add a bit of rum, vodka, fruity liquor, or even tequila to make it boozier. Ultimately, though, sangria is primarily made with wine.

What You’ll Need

To make white wine sangria, you need lots of fruit, white wine, and peach Schnapps. Check the recipe card at the bottom of the post for full ingredient amounts.

  • White wine
  • Peach Schnapps – Any peach-flavored liquor works too.
  • Fresh peaches – Canned peaches work too, but you’ll need to rinse them first. You can also use frozen peaches.
  • Fresh blueberries – If you use frozen blueberries, you can skip some (or all) of the ice.
  • Mint – Fresh basil is a good swap.
  • Ice
  • Sparkling water – It adds a bit of fizziness, but it’s optional.
  • Agave: if you like it a little sweeter

What’s The Best White Wine for Sangria?

Crisp, dry wines like Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, and Grenache Blanc are best for white wine sangrias. They let the wine’s flavor shine through but also leave room for the fruit to infuse into the drink. However, sweeter wines like Riesling and Moscato are great too if you’re not into the acidity of stronger whites. It’s a matter of taste!

How to Make Peach Sangria

If you mix and stir, you’re practically done!

  • Add the fruit. Place the peaches and blueberries in a large pitcher.
  • Add the alcohol. Pour in the wine and peach Schnapps. Stir lightly to combine. Refrigerate it for 1-4 hours before serving.
  • Serve. Fill your serving glasses with ice. Add sangria to taste and top it with sparkling water. Add some peach slices, blueberries, and mint to each glass. Enjoy.

Recipe Tips & Variations

From adding more booze to swapping some fruits, these tips and variations will help you make the perfect white wine sangria.

  • Make it alcohol-free. Swap the Schnapps for peach soda, juice, or purée for an alcohol-free version of this drink.
  • Add more fruit. For a fruitier version, add apple wedges, sliced strawberries, diced mango, and/or pineapple.
  • Make it a frozen sangria. Blitz the sangria ingredients with ice until you get a slushy-like mixture for an icy treat.
  • Add more booze. You can increase the amount of wine or Schnapps in the recipe to make it boozier to taste.
  • Use berries. If you don’t have blueberries, your favorite berries like blackberries and raspberries work too. You can also use a combination of them!

Can I Make White Wine Sangria In Advance?

Yes! Except for the ice, add all of the ingredients to the pitcher and stir to combine. Refrigerate it up to 2 days in advance. Add the ice until right before serving to keep it from watering down.

Serving Suggestions

This peach sangria is great on its own for an at-home cocktail night with friends or family. However, a couple of easy dips and appetizers will really make the night.

Try my Roasted Garlic Hummus or Spinach Artichoke Dip with tortilla chips, crackers, or pita chips. For appetizer ideas, pair this recipe with Goat Cheese Balls, Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus, or Avocado Bruschetta. They look as fancy as the sangria, but they’re just as simple to make.
