White Strawberry-Lemon Sangria

Some might argue that a true sangria is red.

Me, I don’t care either way. It’s sangria. When you’re drinking sangria – regardless of the hue – life is automatically good. Who would want to argue with that?

This sangria in particular has become a fast fave in our house. It’s sweet, but not sickeningly sweet. It’s just-right sweet. The strawberries lend their signature summery taste while the sour lemon keeps everything in check. Lemon-lime soda tops it off and, I think, makes this sangria particularly drinkable – in a bit of a dangerous way, actually.

And then there’s the buzzed fruit. Thanks to the addition of rum, the strawberries and apples are nice and kicky – perfect for picking out of the glass for a quick nibble.

This is such a wonderfully refreshing sangria – great for the hot, muggy days ahead. And warm summer evenings. And sunny afternoons. And maybe even right now.

White Strawberry-Lemon Sangria

Strawberries, lemon, apples, white wine, and rum make a perfect summer sangria that'll knock your socks off.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 5 hours

Total Time: 5 hours 10 minutes


  • 2 lemons, thinly sliced
  • 1 apple, cored and sliced (any kind)
  • 1 cup strawberries, hulled and sliced lengthwise

  • 4 cups lemon-lime soda


  1. Add lemon slices to a large pitcher, then the apples, then the strawberries.
  2. Pour the wine and rum over the top.

  6. Brandi Zimmerman posted on May 26, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    Thanks for sharing. I really wanted to like this, but maybe I did the wrong kind/amount of wine because the rum taste was really strong to me. What brand and what size bottle of wine did you use? Thanks again!

    • Kare replied on May 26th, 2012 on 5:58 pm

      Hi Brandi, I’m so sorry it didn’t turn out for you! I can hardly taste the rum in it when I make it, but maybe I’m just a lush. ;) I like Geyser Peak Sauvignon Blanc best. You may also want to try reducing the rum to 1/4 cup if you try it again.

  7. Brittany posted on May 27, 2012 at 6:54 pm

    What size bottle of wine? Small or big one?

  8. Kare posted on May 27, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    Hi Brittany, just your standard 750 ml bottle of wine. Thanks for asking; I’ll amend the recipe to specify size.

  9. Sharon posted on May 28, 2012 at 4:56 pm

    YUM! Thanks. I agree with you about Sangria – I say it means “fruit with wine”, at least it does in my dictionary.

    • Anjana replied on March 16th, 2014 on 7:58 pm

      I wish I had made this for Thanksgiving. but will have to give it a try for Christmas. I LOVE homemade crernabry sauce. My family is full of great cooks, but for some reason this always gets overlooked and we end up with slices of canned Cranberry goo. Gross. I’m so excited for this! Thank you!

      Hi Melissa, sure – maybe try some pears, or really whatever you want! Sangria is usually nice and forgiving. :)

    I made this with my friend the other day. Stuck with the recipe but we used an extra lemon and a bit more strawberries. WOW. It tasted delicious. TOO DELICIOUS. That stuff is strong. Or maybe it was because I also drank whatever was left from the bottle of white rum – Bicardi Superior. Ended up watching Rocky Horror and dancing around.

    Had a huuuge hangover the next day woah. If you are trying to get drunk of this remember it is sweet as hell, and its gonna hurt in the morning. Drinking water before you go to bed is a muuust.

    But all in all, great recipe! Gonna try it again and not drink as much/ hydrate myself.

    How long does it keep ? Needing to make it tonight to have ready when i get home tomorrow night for a party. Think it will still be ok or should i wait to add the strawberries until tomorrow?

    • Kare replied on June 7th, 2012 on 7:51 pm

      Hi Angie, it keeps pretty well for about 24 hour, but I’d suggest slicing the strawberries tonight and putting them in first thing in the morning, they won’t get as waterlogged that way. And definitely wait to add the soda until right before serving. Have fun!

    Hi Kare, Being Spanish I have to say that yes the Sangria is normally red but we in fact also have White wine sangría, to make it we use sparkling White wine (it can also be with Sweet sparkling White wine) and it is very good also. I would recommend you to try it and you can also add some other fruits like orange or peach, delicious!!. I’ll try yours and let you know ;-)

      Hi Courtney, I think it’s really important to let it soak for at least four hours, or the flavors probably just won’t be the same. :( I’ve never made it at room temp so I’m really not sure if it would speed up the process or not … probably not though. Sorry!
