This summer sangria recipe is the perfect drink to sip on and relax after a long day! When I think sangria my mind instantly jumps to red wine infused with citrus, but it’s time to give this beverage a summer make-over, and peach sangria it is!
And, this summer white sangria is so refreshing. It’s packed full of summer fruit like mango, melon, peaches, and citrus, mint…and a splash of tequila for good measure! Whenever we have a summer cookout, this white wine sangria recipe is one that my friends often ask for. Everyone loves watermelon sangria. 🙂
OH! And PLEASE, please, please don’t add ice. It will water down the sangria, and no one likes a watery cocktail. Instead, you can freeze a few cups of the fruit that you used and use those as makeshift ice cubes. They’ll keep your drink cold but won’t water it down. WIN.
What Is Sangria?
Sangria is a punch made from wine and fruit. Often times there are juices, sugars, and liqueurs like brandy added as well.
It’s very sweet, but definitely not always paleo! If you’re ordering it out, you’ll want to double check the ingredients.
OR, just make your own simple sangria recipe, like my peach sangria.

Summer Sangria Recipe Variations
Guess what?! You can actually add other fruits in this white wine sangria recipe to change or enhance the flavors!
I love sangria recipes like that because you have options, and that can keep everyone happy. Here are some of my favorite ingredients to add in every once in a while:
- Blueberries – They add a lovely berry flavor to the summer white sangria. However, the color of the sangria will change to more purple color other than clear.
- Cantaloupe – Watermelon and cantaloupe just go together, so why not put them both in this peach sangria.

- Strawberries – Yum! Strawberries go perfectly in this or any other white wine sangria recipe because they have so much flavor.

Should You Eat The Fruit In Sangria?
Yes! You should eat the fruit in sangria! Warning, it may be a little boozy as it’s soaked in tequila and wine but it certainly tastes good! But really, it’s totally up to you. There are no right or wrong answers here.
How Do You Store Summer Sangria?
Store this summer sangria recipe in the refrigerator. The wine itself will last 5-7 days in the fridge.
The problem is that the fruit will start to go bad before the wine does. For this reason, you should only keep it around for 3 or 4 days tops in the refrigerator.
Can You Freeze This White Wine Sangria Recipe?
Yes, you can freeze this white wine sangria recipe. It will have more of a slushy texture when it’s time to serve it, and it’s amazing.
You can store it in a freezer-safe storage bag, airtight container, or pour it into ice cube trays. If you pour it into the ice cube trays once it’s frozen solid, you can take the cubes out and put them in an airtight container. You can even use them to cool down other alcoholic drinks.
