I love a glass of wine in the evening or when out with friends. Like most people who drink wine, I have a preference. While dry red wines are my favorite, I love a sweet and fruity wine sangria, especially at a party or get together! I’m going to show you how to make this party favorite White Sangria, which is perfect for any day of the year!
May 9th marks National Moscato Day, started by Gallo Family Vineyards. The Gallo Family has been making delicious wine since 1933 when brothers Ernest & Julio Gallo started the business. They were kind enough to send me three beautiful bottles of Moscato, a sweet Italian dessert wine, to try. I loved them all, though the Pink Moscato was my favorite! I chose to use white Moscato for my Sangria.
This white sangria has truly been a go-to recipe for family events or social gatherings for me. Even my daughter has asked for the recipes on multiple occasions because her friends love it so much! I promise you, this white sangria will be a hit. It’s perfect for just about any holiday gathering, BBQ or birthday!
Not to mention how beautiful the White Sangria really is. That’s an added bonus :)
If you connect with me on Instagram, you probably saw these…
Sangria usually combines a sweet wine, some sort of liqueur, and sometimes soda water. Then you add a bunch of gorgeous fresh fruit and let it sit. Yum! As I said, I chose white Moscato, plus I added in Triple-Sec Liqueur, orange flavored, and club soda.

- 1 bottle (750 ml) Gallo Moscato

Helpful Kitchen Tools
I sliced up one orange, an apple, a peach, and a small lemon.
I also added some strawberries and threw in blueberries and blackberries as well.
Stir it all up.
Gaze into its beautiful eyes…
You really should let the flavors meld in the fridge, but I won’t judge if you have a glass now! This sangria was absolutely delicious, and perfect for the warm days of summer! I can’t wait to make more and try other wines and liqueurs.
We love this white sangria so much that we make it several times each summer. Another summer sangria I want to try is this pineapple sangria I found while poking around Pinterest. Looks delicious!
