Moscato sangria is a deliciously sweet and refreshing cocktail. It’s an infused mixture of Moscato wine, fresh berries, oranges, a hint of raspberry liquor, and topped with sparkling soda. This will sure hit the spot for your next special occasion.
Spring is just around the corner, which means more brunch and dinner parties on the calendar. And what’s a party without the perfect refreshment? Enter this moscato sangria!
This is a light and fruity play on your typical sangria, made with sweet Moscato wine, Chambord liqueur, berries and citrus. It’s easy to make and perfect for large crowds. Just mix all the ingredients in a large pitcher and serve it over ice with sparkling soda for a fizzy, festive drink.
What Is Moscato?
If you love a sweet white wine, this recipe is for you. Moscato is derived from the Muscat grape and produced in a few different variations in terms of color, fizziness and dryness. It’s a light wine with delicious fruity and floral notes. And it has a slightly lower alcohol content, making it the perfect dessert wine or brunch time spritzer.
Moscato Sangria Ingredients
All you need for this cocktail are fruits, wine, liquor, and sparkling water. Here’s the rundown.
- Orange: Feel free to use any type of orange, but I chose a blood orange for its rich color and raspberry-like flavor.
- Berries: A combination of strawberries, blueberries and raspberries.
- Moscato Wine: All Moscato wine works, whether it be white or rosé .
- Fruity Liquor: I love Chambord as it has a black raspberry flavor that pairs well with the rest of the berries. But you can use any type of fruity liquor.
- Sparkling Water: I’m using S.Pellegrino, but any fruity sparkling water works great, even La Croix.

What size pitcher did you make this in? More specifically, I have a 64 oz (8 cup) mason jar that I’d like to fill with this moscato sangria for a get-together next weekend. Any idea what I should do regarding ingredients? Should I just double the recipe? Thank you for your time!
By the way, step 3 says to top it off with sparkling water — I’m assuming that’s not the entire 12oz of sparkling water you listed in the ingredients. Is that right?
Hi! Yes, I would double the recipe for a larger pitcher. And no, you don’t have to use all the sparkling water. I just usually add a splash per glass. Enjoy!
Step 1 mentioned all ingredients. Step 3 top off with sparkling water. Does the sparkling water go into step 1 for all ingredients?
Hi Sharen – Thanks for clarifying! The sparkling water isn’t meant to be included in the first step. Just topped off at the end.
This looks great. Just one question- what flavor San Pell. works the best in this drink?
Hi Tammy – you can really use any flavor, or plain. Choose your favorite!
Two of my favorite drinks combined. This is fabulous!
Hi Andrea – I hope you enjoy this recipe :)

Hi Mahy – It’s definitely one of the best festive drinks to make!
Love sangria but hayevwhen the wine is too dry. Moscato is the perfect solution. Plus who doesn’t love Chambord?
Hi Jen – I have to completely agree! This gives it a nice refreshing twist to it :)
