White sangria recipe peach by blogger Stephanie Ziajka on Diary of a Debutante

Having been born and raised in the south, hospitality is one of the cornerstones of both my personality and lifestyle. Ever since grade school, I’ve been planning quarterly sleepovers and surprise parties for friends. As of lately, though, it’s been all about family gatherings and celebrations, which are by far the most difficult engagements to plan. So many personalities and so few filters. Anyway, my point is that having to throw together a signature cocktail on a whim is something I’ve gotten pretty good at. My go-to drink for these types of occasions is almost always sangria. It’s super easy to make it batches, and it’s always a crowd pleaser. Keep reading for my all-time favorite white wine sangria recipe for spring and summer! There’s also a printable and downloadable spring sangria recipe card with step-by-step instructions below.

White Peach Sangria

White wine sangria recipe by blogger Stephanie Ziajka on Diary of a Debutante

Whip out this white wine sangria recipe whenever you need a delicious summer or spring cocktail for a crowd! Made with dry white wine and sweet elderflower liqueur, this refreshing spring sangria combines all the best things about relaxing on the porch in a single pitcher. It can be made up to 48 hours in advance and can also be easily scaled up or down depending on the size of your gathering. 

For parties for more than eight people, I recommend using a beverage drink dispenser with a built-in spigot (like this one). Not only are they great for self-serving, but you won’t need to make multiple pitchers at once.

White Sangria Ingredients

One of my favorite things about sangria in general is that you can take a lot of liberties with the ingredients. This white wine sangria recipe is no different! Still, here’s a list of everything I recommend using in this white wine sangria recipe–

  • 1.5L bottle of Chardonnay– If you can’t find a 1.5L bottle of Chardonnay, grab two 750mL bottles instead. Honestly, any bottle of dry white wine will work, but Chardonnay is my personal pick for the best white wine for sangria. It’s richer and fuller-bodied than other white wines, like Sauvignon Blanc and Rieslings.
  • 1 cup of elderflower liqueur– St. Germaine is my personal favorite, but Joseph Cartron Sureau Elderflower Liqueur is a little bit cheaper. 
  • 2–3 ripe peaches, sliced– You can use either regular peaches or white peaches. I recommend buying whichever is riper!
  • 1 pint strawberries, hulled and sliced– The riper, the better!
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves– Fresh mint leaves just this white wine sangria recipe the refreshing kick that it needs! The mint flavor infuses nicely on its own, but if you want it to be stronger, muddle the leaves in the pitcher before letting the fruit soak.

One quick note– I don’t recommend spending more than $10 on your white wine. Yes, even for a 1.5L bottle. Trust me, with all the added flavors, it serves as more of a neutral base than anything else. In other words, “good” wine will be wasted on this recipe. We’ve started using Oak Leaf, which is $6 (not a typo) for a big bottle, and it’s just as delicious! 

White Sangria Substitutions

Here are some common substitutions for this white peach sangria recipe–

  • Dry white wine– Chardonnay is my personal pick for the best white wine for sangria, but there are a few other options. Really any dry white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc or Riesling, will work just fine.
  • Peach juice– Sometimes fresh peaches are impossible to find. If your grocery store doesn’t have them and you’re craving this peach sangria recipe, real peach juice is a great alternative. For reference, on average 2 1/2 peaches yields 1 cup of peach juice, so about 3/4 cup of peach juice is a good amount. Also, as much as I love peach nectar, I wouldn’t use it in this recipe. It’s already sweet enough with the elderflower and fruit, so you don’t need the added sweeteners or flavors. 
  • Creme de Menthe– If you want to make your white wine sangria a little boozier, you can substitute creme de menthe for fresh mint leaves. It gives the already-sweet sangria even more sweetness, though, so use it sparingly. A light splash is all you need.

Also, this is more of an addition than a substitution, but if you want to add a little something extra, throw in 2 cups of mixed berries, too! Ripe raspberries, blueberries, and/or blackberries can really help turn up the berry flavor. Make sure you wash them thoroughly, though. Otherwise (and I’m speaking from experience), your white sangria may have some dark bits floating in it.

And now for the super simple spring sangria recipe! Here’s how you make it– 

First, combine the sliced peached, sliced strawberries, and fresh mint leaves in a large pitcher or beverage container. Muddle the mint leaves in the pitcher for extra minty flavor. Then, add in the dry white wine and elderflower liqueur and stir to combine.

Let the fruit and mint leaves soak in the fridge for at least six hours but preferably overnight to allow all the flavors to infuse in the wine.

Once it’s had time to sit, fill eight wine goblets with a little bit of ice and pour in the white spring sangria. Use a spoon to scoop some fruit into each glass and garnish with fresh sprigs of mint.

Also, another note– keep in mind that while this recipe officially serves eight, they’re generous pours. What can I say? We don’t conform to traditional drink sizes (ha)! Anyway, my point is that you can easily get ten (or more) glasses from of a single batch, especially when you add in a decent amount of ice.

Serve chilled– and enjoy!
