Four Sangria Cocktails For Your Next Party

Food & Cooking Blog

Sangria is a classic Spanish beverage consisting of wine mixed with fruit and juices. Traditionally, it is made with red wine, but you don't always have to stick with tradition! Here are four sangria cocktails to consider making for your next dinner party or gathering. From traditional to totally offbeat, each one offers its own unique flavors.

Classic Sangria


  • 1 bottle dry red wine
  • 1/2 cup Brandy
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 apple, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons simple syrup

Combine all of the ingredients in a pitcher, and stir gently to combine. Let sit in the refrigerator to chill for at least 2 hours before serving. This allows the flavors to come out of the fruit. Serve in glasses, fruit included, and sip through a straw.

Berry Sangria


  • 1 bottle dry red wine
  • 1/2 cup cranberry juice
  • 1/2 cup sweet vermouth
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 cup strawberries, sliced

Combine the ingredients in a pitcher. Stir to combine, muddling the fruit to extract more of its flavor. Serve immediately over ice, or allow to rest for 30 minutes if you want the flavors to intensify. This is a great sangria recipe to make when you're in a hurry since it does not necessarily need to sit.

White Peach Sangria


  • 1 bottle sweet white wine, such as riesling
  • 2 peaches, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon peach liqueur

Combine the ingredients in a pitcher, and stir to combine, focusing on smashing some of the peach pieces to extract their flavor. Let rest for about an hour in the fridge, and then serve in wine glasses, garnished with additional peach slices.

Fruity Tequila Sangria


  • 1 bottle sweet white wine
  • 1/4 cup silver tequila
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 lime, sliced
  • 1 orange, sliced

This is the "wild" tequila of the bunch and is a great choice for a lively party. Combine the wine and the fruit, and let the mixture rest in the fridge for about an hour. Add the tequila just before serving. For an extra touch, you can serve this drink in salt-rimmed glasses, just as you would a margarita.

Let the recipes above inspire you, and then try concocting some of your own sangria cocktails. As long as you're combining fruit with wine, the results will be delicious, and it's always fun to discover a new and enticing combination.
