Fruity White Wine Peach Sangria is an easy and delicious summer cocktail made by the pitcherful. (No bartender necessary!)
This refreshing sangria is the perfect no-fuss fruity drink to enjoy poolside with friends and family this summer. Today I’m sharing an easy white wine peach sangria recipe perfect for a holiday weekend!
So we’ve been outside working hard to spruce up the yard for our son Jacob’s high school graduation party in just a few weeks. It always amazes me how much faster the weeds grow than the flowers.
Jon spent a good amount of time wrestling an invasive vine out of a rhododendron bush out front. He seriously filled three or four lawn bags with just the vines. He was also trimming bushes and weed whacking.
I was weeding flower beds and preparing our little patch of earth for the vegetable garden out back.
So by the time we finished all our hard work last Saturday we were in serious need of liquid refreshment. This Fruity White Wine Peach Sangria fit the bill.
If you’re familiar with sangria at all, you know it’s usually red wine, some sweetener and lots of fresh, ripe fruit. So I did a little switcheroo here, and used white wine instead for a more summery cocktail.
While it isn’t the mixed drink I’d serve Queen Elizabeth if she showed up to tea, it’s a great cocktail just the same. It’s a fun fru-fru girly drink, for the record.
Not high end or pricey, but the perfect cocktail to make by the pitcher and serve inexpensively to large groups. This recipe serves many and makes nearly a gallon. It goes a long way and everyone raves about it. (You’ll thank me later.)
A couple notes:
- Use fresh, ripe fruit that macerates well, releasing its sweet juice into the wine. Bad or unripe fruit doesn’t improve, even when soaked in wine.
- And use decent wine. I like to use cheaper or middle of the road wine for sangria. Today I used a bottle of 2014 Kendall-Jackson Pinot Gris and it turned out great.
- Melting ice can dilute, so opt for extra frozen fruit instead to keep your sangria well chilled.
- If you like a really sweet sangria, add simple syrup. Mine was plenty sweet without additional simple syrup.
Fruity White Wine Peach Sangria Recipe
- 1 25.4 ounce bottle white wine try pinot grigio, pino gris or prosecco I used Kendall Jackson Pinot Gris
- 1, 2 liter bottle of peach soda
- 1/4 cup brandy
- 3-5 ripe juicy peaches, sliced thinly
- Optional - add simple syrup if you like it super sweet. I did not add simple syrup
- Optional - one pint blueberries
- Optional - Extra frozen fruit to keep your sangria cold without dilution.
- Pour all ingredients into a very large pitcher. (This make nearly a gallon.)
- Add fresh fruit.
- Chill in the refrigerator, letting fruit macerate in the sangria for several hours.
- Serve well chilled with ice or extra frozen fruit.

Coincidence? I picked up three beautiful peaches on my way home (along with bread, milk, etc) before reading this. I think it’s a sign that I should be making this! Haha! I love that white wine twist. Anyhow, I think my little peaches will be put to good use this weekend. 😉
And Allie… Congratulations to your son on his graduation. What a special time. All the best!
Lovely mats, by the way. Have a wonerful weekend! Xo

Frozen fruit for ice cubes…great idea. Love the crispness of that mat also. Congratulations to your son and you and Jon.
Thank you so much Nan, a big weekend ahead and fingers crossed for good weather for the (hopefully!) outside grad party on Sunday afternoon. XO
How about that mat??!! Love it! Now I’m wondering if it is dog-chew-proof? So far, none of our other mats have survived our 8 mo. old Golden Retriever… 🙁 We can’t wait to see Jonathan graduate. He’s quite a guy.
Dan Jones says
Chiming in on the mat and it’s “chewproof” qualities. It is the most chewproof mat we’ve ever had and while our dog Carlton has tried to chew it, as of yet, he has not succeeded. However., there is still time and he is determined. 🙂
This sangria sounds delightfully refreshing, and that mat is gorgeous! I love it!

The sangria looks delish. And that mat is adorable. Cheers!

Allie, I love your tip to use extra frozen fruit in this sangria to keep the ice from melting quickly! And I love that custom Infinity rug! I bet y’all have your yard looking mighty spiffy by the time Jonathan’s party rolls around – it must be such a bittersweet time for y’all! So hope you enjoy this weekend – with delicious Sangria in hand 🙂 XO

Christy Smith says
Ah that mat!! Love the variety of designs and its durability factor. Gonna be ordering one this summer! I just made a lovely red wine sangria for an event so am delighted to have a wonderful sounding white version…and with sweet summer peaches…can’t wait to give this one a whirl!
I thought you might like that mat Christy! 🙂 I was actually thinking of putting a red wine sangria on the blog instead of this one, but then I had some white wine in the house and I went that direction. Red wine sangria will be coming though. So let me know if you have any tips I should know. Can’t wait to see you soon. XO

I love white wine, I love peaches and I love sangria too! This beauty is speaking to me Allie. Love the idea of using frozen fruits, that’s pure genius. Absolutely perfect drink to sip on these warmer days! AWESOME share my dear!
Sounds delicious! I would love it if you would link it up to Tipsy Tuesday!
Hi Allie! I love your custom door! C’est la classe! So chic! My custom door says “HOLA” 😉
Ton sangria est spectaculaire. Je n’aime pas beaucoup la traditionnel sangria parce qu’elle fait avec du vin rouge et le vin rouge pour moi ne doit pas être froid, c’est un sacrilège! Alors que la tienne est fait avec du vin blanc et pour l’été est génial! J’adore le mélange avec les pêches et les myrtilles. So good! xoxo
