White Sangria with Mango and Berries

White sangria is the perfect fruity, summer cocktail. A combination of white wine, mango, strawberries, raspberries and orange, its sweet, easy to make, and presents beautifully. It’s also a bit softer and lighter than my red sangria recipe – though both are delicious!

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.

Why do I love this white sangria recipe? Because it’s crisp, fresh, delicious and can be made in advance of a party, barbecue or outdoor gathering. In fact, the flavors all meld together beautifully as it sits.

How Do You Make Sangria with White Wine?

If you watch the video below, you’ll see how easy it is to make white wine sangria. But here’s the quick version in three steps:

  1. Slice up a bunch of fruit (I love mango and berries) and toss it in a pitcher
  2. Add some Cointreau, Grand Marnier or other orange-flavored liquor along with a bottle of white wine.
  3. Chill and let the flavors meld together.

Sangria (and specifically this white sangria) is a casual cocktail and not fussy at all. Which is why I love it!

What Wine is Best for White Sangria?

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 Last Sangria Tip

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. Enjoy!

  2. I’ve made this many times. It’s boozy and delicious! 5 stars

  3. First time making this and boy I am glad I did. It’s smooth and delicious on a hot day. My husband fried some fish and shrimp and salad with watermelon with this cool drink complete it all. Will make it again and again. This will be my summer sangria.5 stars

  4. What white wine do you use? Chardonnay?

    • 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.

  5. This is delicious!!
    If I’m letting it sit overnight can I use frozen mangoes and strawberry in it or is it best to stick with fresh fruit?5 stars

  6. Can I not use mango?
    What is a substitute for good taste?
    Can I add raspberries?
    I’ve never made this before

    • You can substitute mangos for other fruits such as more berries, apples, or citrus fruits. You can reference my other sangria recipe for some fruit combo ideas!

  7. If I want to make this in a 2.4 gallon container for a party, how many times should I scale up/multiple this recipe?

  8. Hi Lisa! This looks absolutely delicious, I can’t wait to try it! I just wanted to ask whether you think it’s possible to use a different type of liquor, or omit it completely? And can you use canned mango instead of fresh? Thanks a lot!5 stars

    • Hi Chiara- This is best made with wine, since that’s what sangria is typically made of. But, you can always omit the wine to add sparkling water and a juice instead!

  9. Love it! Great recipe. I only had a glass of white wine left. So I mixed everything in a 16oz tumbler with ice cubes. Perfect!5 stars

  10. Hi Lisa,
    This is a wonderfully refreshing recipe! Thanks for sharing. Also, where are your glasses and pitcher from? Love them and need to buy new of both.

    Chicago, IL5 stars

    • Thanks so much Sheri! I’m happy you loved the recipe. :) The pitcher is linked in the recipe notes at the bottom and unfortunately those glasses are super old, so I don’t have a link for them.

  11. Hi, thanks for sharing this recipe. Do you add club soda when you serve? Thanks!

  12. Can you please provide this recipe to serve 12 people? Thank you.

  13. This cocktail looks soooo fresh and full of delicious flavours – such a perfect idea for a hot summer day with friends :) 5 stars

  15. So fresh & fruity – perfect for summer!5 stars

  16. This is so pretty and the perfect drink for summer! I love the photos and styling too, the fruit looks delicious.5 stars

  17. Love the addition of the fruit, not only tastes great but looks great too!5 stars

  18. Love this recipes lyhough fruit soaks up the qune so i would add 1/2 of a bottle more to the full recipes so for two batches i would add another bottle of wine5 stars

  19. Hi Lisa.  I will be making this in larger volume for a party tomorrow.  Any thoughts for putting it in one of those beverage dispensers?  Possibly some fruit in & then some outside for folks to add so they don’t miss out on the fruit?  And possibly the reusable ice cubes to keep it cold but not dilute???  Sounds delish, can’t wait to try!   

    • Hi Laurie – I think it would be fine in a beverage dispenser, especially if you have fruit on the side. I’d also keep fresh ice cubes available as you probably do want to dilute it a bit in each glass…otherwise your guests may end up a bit tipsy. Haha. Enjoy! :) x

  20. Hi Lisa, I’m from Poland :) Sangira tastes delicious ! I love your all recipes !5 stars

  21. To keep the full flavor in your glass, use half ice half frozen fruit.

  22. So I love this recipe. I just want to know if it can be stored in a cooler for about two days. I’m making a large batch for my wedding and need to make this 2days prior. And suggestions?

  27. What type of white wine should be used?
    I am making this today, the recipe sounds delicious!

    • I usually use a sauvignon blanc or pinot grigio. You don’t need anything fancy or expensive, just a dry, fruity white wine will do. Hope you like it! :)

      • Thanks! I made it and it is as delicious as it sounds! I made one alteration: I used Patron Citronage Mango flavor instead of the Cointreau. It really bumps up the mango in it. Thanks for an awesome white sangria recipe!

      • Oooh, I’ve never tried that Patron but it sounds amazing – and perfect for this recipe. Will have to go buy it! :) x

      • If you’re not familiar, the Citronage is a line of liqueurs made by Patron. The original that I knew of is Orange Citronage – it’s just their version of triple sec. When I went to my liquor store, I happened to see it in the Mango flavor and thought, that should be perfect! It added the triple sec feel that your recipe called for, but with added mango taste. Thanks again for a definite keeper in my book!

      • I just Googled it and I’m so excited to grab a bottle. I love anything mango (Cruzan Mango Rum is also a fave), so this is right up my alley. Thanks for the tip! :) x

  28. How many servings does this make

  29. Looks incredible Lisa!
    (I still drool over that kitchen everyone I visit your site)

  30. I love all of the fresh fruit in this sangria. This will be perfect for spring.

  31. Wonderful beverage to have and that too right time when Mangoes are in season!

  32. Such a gorgeous summer beverage! Wishing you a fabulous Easter and celebration – sounds like a fun end to the weekend. We’re supposed to get lots of rain here, so my annual Easter brunch will definitely be indoors; but no worries, it’ll still be fabulous :)

  33. I’m so obsessed with mangoes right now and I really like the addition of mint in your recipe.

  34. This looks so refreshing and delicious! I think I need to mix up a pitcher this weekend. Yummy! Thanks for sharing! Luci’s Morsels | fashion. food. frivolity.

  35. Lovely video and pictures. And great tip about adding the ice to the glass and not the pitcher!
