wine glass of Red, White and Blue Sangria

As the weather starts warming up, I love a glass of chilled sangria. Red or white, doesn’t matter. The thought of sitting on my front porch, glass of sangria in one hand and iPad in the other sounds like the perfect way to unwind. However this sangria is also a great adult beverage for serving a crowd.

In this festive white wine sangria, fresh berries are added to white wine, cointreau and sparkling water sangria for a festive touch and as a bonus, a snack after you’ve finished your glass.

Red, White and Blue Sangria ingredients.

Here’s what you need for the red, white and blue sangria:

  • white wine – I like sauvignon blanc, especially Nobilo
  • Cointreau
  • lime sparkling water or lime soda if you want a sweeter sangria
  • fresh strawberries, raspberries, blueberries
  • ice
  • mint for serving

What is Cointreau?

Once called Curaçao Blanco Triple Sec, Cointreau is a orange flavored liquor. Typically consumed as an aperitif (before dinner) or digestif (after dinner) or mixed with other ingredients to make several different types of cocktails like margaritas, cosmopolitans and sidecars – and white wine sangrias 😉.

When I was shooting this, I did things a little backwards. It’s not a huge deal if you add your berries first or last. But I prefer to add them after I stir, as to not break up those delicate raspberries.

With that being said, in a large pitcher pour in the bottle of chilled white wine, 6 ounces cointreau and 2 cans (also chilled) lime sparkling water. Stir to combine.

Now is when I would add in half of all the berries, if I was paying attention. 😂
