What goes into the orange and strawberry sangria?

To make this super simple and tasty white wine sangria, you will need:

  • A bottle of chilled Sauvignon Blanc. You can use another white wine here, but I’d steer clear of Moscato, as it is VERY sweet.
  • 1/2 cup White rum, such as Bacardi.
  • 1/2 cup Grand Marnier
  • 1 cup Fresh squeezed orange juice. I’ve used both Cara Cara oranges and Naval oranges, and both are delish!
  • Thinly sliced orange.
  • Some sliced fresh strawberries.
  • 1 tbsp Grenadine syrup.

What’s the best white wine for sangria?

For general white wine drinking, as well as sangria, I am partial to Sauvignon Blanc. It’s highly drinkable, agreeable to most, and was called “the world’s most reliably good white wine” by Wine Spectator. If you aren’t a fan, you could always opt for a Pinot Grigio or even a Riesling. I would advise against using a Moscato, though, as it is overly sweet.

It’s all about the booze: Rum & Grand Marnier Sangria

To me- it ain’t sangria without a good glug of booze. For this recipe, you’ll add a generous amount of white rum and Grand Marnier to the mix. This adds flavor (and fun) to the recipe.

Making the mixture up a day or so in advance and keeping it in the refrigerator will help the flavors to meld, as well as infuse all the fruit with delicious booze. A win-win.
