Short on time? Need to serve right away?
If you’d like to serve this sangria right away, use chilled wine and add lots of ice to individual serving glasses. Avoid putting the ice directly into the pitcher because it will dilute the sangria once it melts.
What Kind of Wine Should I Use in Sangria
This summer sangria recipe calls for white wine. Choose one of these recommended white wines:
- pinot grigio
- sauvignon blanc
- dry or sweet riesling
Trust me, I am no expert.. I had to look all these up, but I can guarantee that you could just pick the cheapest white wine available at the store and you’ll still end up with a great strawberry sangria!
How Long Will Sangria Keep in the Fridge
Sangria is best consumed within 3 days. After that, the fruit may go bad. However, you can remove the fruit and seal the container for longer storage.Subscribe to The First Year newsletter to get our recipes sent to your inbox!
