This white sangria with mango and berries is the perfect fruity, summer cocktail. It’s light, sweet, easy to make and presents beautifully.

I think we’re gonna luck out with gorgeous weather for Easter tomorrow. Mid 70’s…which is perfect for my niece and nephew to run around outside, find all the eggs and not work up a sweat. It’s also perfect for us adults to lounge around outside, talk up a storm, eat delicious food and drink white wine sangria. And maybe fall asleep on a lounge chair in the early afternoon (just speaking from prior experience).

This white sangria recipe is the perfect cocktail for spring and summer because it has all the fruity vibes. It’s also super easy to make and looks like you put much more effort into it than you really did. Always a bonus.

To watch me make the white sangria, just click the image below:

If you watch the video above, you’ll see how easy it is to make. You literally just slice up a bunch of fruit, toss it in a pitcher, then add some Cointreau, Grand Marnier or other orange-flavored liquor along with a bottle of white wine.

Sangria (and specifically this white sangria) is a casual cocktail and not fussy at all. Which is probably why I like it. So there’s no need to splurge on expensive or high quality wine. I usually opt for a Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, but any fruity, dry white wine will do. You’re just gonna let it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours anyway, to soak up all that fruit goodness.

In fact, because the white sangria soaks in the refrigerator for a few hours, I also don’t add any additional sugar. I like my cocktails on the skinny side, but if you’d like it a bit sweeter, feel free to add a pinch of sugar or stevia.

One thing I forgot to mention in the video though, is that it’s probably best to pour it in glasses with ice. Don’t add ice to the pitcher because that will dilute it, but definitely pour it over ice before serving. Not only does it keep the white sangria cold on a warm day, it’ll prevent you from drinking too much too fast.

I made the mistake of drinking the large glass you see below without ice and it was probably the equivalent of two glasses of white wine (which is a lot for me). About 15 minutes later, I proceeded to take a lovely nap on my patio. I guess you could say I was just practicing for Easter.

Enjoy!
