🍴Instructions

Strawberries, sugar, and water can be placed in a saucepan over medium heat. The strawberries will break down and the mixture will thicken into a syrup in about 10 minutes.

Step Two: Strain and add the remaining ingredients

Strain the syrup using a small strainer set over a large pitcher. Let the syrup cool to room temperature before adding the remaining ingredients. (You can also pour it into a separate bowl and chill first.) Add the wine, fresh fruit, and brandy. Stir well and put it in the fridge for at least 3 hours.

Step three: Garnish and serve

Add club soda just before serving. Garnish glasses with fresh mint.

🥫 Storage instructions

Sangria is best if consumed within a few days of making it. After that, the fruit will start to break down and the flavor will change.

🔍 FAQs

Can I use frozen fruit?

Yes! If you can’t find fresh peaches or nice-looking berries, you can use canned or frozen fruit instead.

Can you use any type of fruit in sangria?

Yes! Feel free to experiment with different fruits. Except banana. That would be gross.

How do I make a non-alcoholic version?

Um… it would be pretty hard. Wine is the base of the drink. Make a nice fruity lemonade instead. 😊

Can you add liquor to sangria?

Yes! You should! If you can find the peach liqueur options in the recipe, try peach schnapps or regular brandy.

👩🏻‍🍳 Expert tips

  • Don’t waste your money on an expensive wine! Any relatively dry white wine will work fine, and you’ll barely be able to taste it.
  • If you can’t find fresh peaches, no problem! Canned or frozen fruit will work just as well.
  • This recipe is easily adaptable to your liking. Don’t like one of the fruits? Substitute it for something else! Raspberries, blueberries, or even mango would be great in this sangria.
  • This sangria is best made ahead of time so that the flavors have a chance to meld together. However, if you’re in a pinch, you can make it right before your guests arrive.

Notes

The syrup can be made up to 1 week in advance and stored in the refrigerator.
You can use any type of white wine that you like for this recipe. I’ve used Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay with great success.
If you don’t have access to fresh peaches, you can use 1 (15-ounce) can of peach slices, drained. For the strawberries, frozen fruit works fine.
