Citrus Sangria

If you could bottle happiness, it would taste like Sangria. Sangria is a traditional Spanish cocktail that typically consists of fresh fruit, orange juice, sugar, liquor, and red wine. Modern recipes vary and can be made with white wine as well. The very best Sangria sits overnight to fully absorb the fruit flavors; however, we don't always have time to mix up a full batch of this sumptuous treat. This recipe is a quick and easy alternative that gives you the flavors of a white citrus Sangria without the waiting period.


  • 1/2 oz Pineapple or Passion Fruit Juice

  • 1/2 oz Orange Juice

  • 1/2 oz Brandy 

  • Splash of Simple Syrup

  • White wine with fruity or citrus notes (I like Sauvignon Blanc)

  • Fresh fruit (orange, apple, pear, peach or strawberry slices)


  1. Combine fruit juices, brandy, simple syrup, and wine.

  2. Stir to combine.

  3. Drop in a few fruit slices.

  4. Garnish with orange wheel.

  5. Top with ice.


Serve in:

Wine glass or tall tumbler
