Sangria options are endless! If you’ve got some wine and fruit, really you’re good to go, right?!
But as it’s getting warmer out, you may find that you’re looking for a berry based sangria recipe and this one is all about STRAWBERRIES!
Before I made this Strawberry Sangria recipe I reached out to several friends and asked them for their recommendations. Let’s just say my friends are passionate about their sangria!
Plus I would have never thought to add mint leaves until my friend Hannah suggested it, and it really made a difference in the taste! Plus it adds a nice pop of color :)
When you see strawberries on sale in the grocery store for 2/$4 or 3/$5 then you know it’s a good time to make strawberry sangria! You’ll for sure need 2 containers of strawberries, possibly 3 because it’s hard to know how many cups you’ll get out of each container.
Our strawberry sangria recipe calls for 7 ingredients:
-strawberry simple syrup (strawberries, water and sugar – we’ll tell you how to make it!)
We used a pinot grigio, but you can use whatever your favorite white wine is, or even a rosé wine.
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!
Strawberry Simple Syrup
- 3 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/3 cup sugar
- Strawberry Simple Syrup, recipe above
- 1 bottle white wine
- 1/2 cup club soda, or more to taste
- 2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
- 1/2 orange, sliced
- Fresh mint leaves
- Prepare strawberry simple syrup: In a medium-sized pot over high heat, combine sliced strawberries, water and sugar. Allow mixture to come to a boil and let it boil for 5 minutes. Then turn heat to low and allow mixture to simmer for 10 minutes.
- Place a sieve on top of a glass bowl. Carefully pour strawberry mixture into the sieve, allowing liquid to flow into glass bowl. Use the back of a spoon to lightly press strawberries, extracting all liquid.
- Allow strawberry simple syrup to chill in refrigerator until cold. Can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
- When ready to make sangria, combine strawberry simple syrup, white wine, club soda, sliced strawberries, sliced oranges, and mint leaves in a large pitcher. Stir to combine. If serving right away, add ice. Otherwise, refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.
