This White Strawberry-Lemon Sangria recipe has been pinned well over 1 million times! The Kitchn calls it the most popular sangria recipe on Pinterest. I just call this white sangria recipe delicious! 🙂
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 White Strawberry-Lemon Sangria recipe 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 to this white sangria recipe, while the sour lemon keeps everything in check. Lemon-lime soda tops it off and, I think, makes this strawberry lemon 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.
(And here’s a new video that shows you just how easy it is to make this sangria (and features a few more easy strawberry sangria recipes too!)
White Strawberry-Lemon Sangria
- 2 lemons (thinly sliced)
- 1 apple (cored and sliced [any kind])
- 1 cup strawberries (hulled and sliced lengthwise)
- 750 ml white wine (1 standard-size bottle) (a dry-ish white wine is best - I like Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay)
- 1/2 cup light rum
- 4 cups lemon-lime soda
- Add lemon slices to a large pitcher, then the apples and strawberries. (I love this pitcher which seals airtight and fits easily into narrow refrigerator spaces.)
- Pour the wine and rum over the top.
- Cover and place in the refrigerator for 4 - 5 hours.
- Remove from refrigerator and add the lemon lime soda. Add a few pieces of the fruit to your glass and pour sangria over to serve.
- Leftovers keep for a day or so, but you likely won't have any! 🙂

I am making this for tomorrow. Can I leave the fruit, wine, and rum to infuse for 24 hours in the refrigerator before adding the soda?

I have a “lightly sparklingly” Chardonnay I received as a house warming gift. Would that work for this recipe or would you suggest a different wine?

Good information you have posted!
My husband and I don’t drink, but ALL of our friends do. When we throw a party, it’s really hard for us to find a mixed drink that will be a crowd-pleaser because we don’t have the knowledge or personal taste to see a recipe and know if it’s going to taste good. I saw this one and thought “strawberries and lemons, what could go wrong?” and I certainly didn’t regret it! I doubled this recipe for 10 guests and it was GONE by the end of the party. Even die-hard red wine fans were going back for seconds and thirds. Thanks for this recipe, I’m keeping it forever!
I am super late replying to comments but I wanted to thank you for your review! I’m so glad this one was a hit!
What’s up to every one, it’s genuinely a nice for me to visit this site, it includes precious Information.
Where is the recipe?
whats a good light rum to use. ? also , do you let it set for 5 hours?
What is lemon lime soda? Can I use sparkling lemon water instead
Sprite or 7-up. 🙂 Sparkling lemon water would work if you used a sweeter wine or added maybe some simple syrup to taste.
I have made this recipe several times and it is always a hit. I especially love it this time of year when strawberries are fresh.
Making this for a wedding!
Love it just fruity and lite!!!!!
Hi! Can you tell me how much I would need of everything to fill a 2 gallon beverage pitcher?

Would do you mean by light rum?
Did you use brown or white?
