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! 🙂

How much does this recipe make? A gallon?
Hi Carolyn, it makes about 8 cups (not including any of the fruit), so that’s about a half gallon.
I really want to try this recipe but my party is tonight. Would it still work if I made it anyway without letting it refrigerate? Or is it vital you leave it in the fridge for a few hours?
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!

Made it with strawberries, peaches, blueberries and lemons. White Zin was all I had so I used it. It was very good. Adding the sprite really gave it the zing it needed.
Anazing! The best sangria I’ve had (and I live in Spain!) My friends all loved it too – huge hit! 😉

Hi!! This looks SO delicious I really want to try it, but…..I have recently developed an allergy to strawberries!! It’s so depressing because I love strawberry. Do you have any suggestions for a substitue? Thanks!!
So sorry about your strawberry allergy, Kathryn! Raspberries might be a wonderful substitute. They won’t hold up quite as well, but the color and flavor would be out of this world!
I’m making this for a bachelorette party tomorrow night, if i make it too soon will the fruit go bad or will i be ok to make it ahead of time and leave it in the fridge?

I’m making a very big batch of this for a camping trip. Wondering if I can use frozen strawberries for this instead of fresh (working on a bit of a budget!)
Hi Amy, I think frozen strawberries would work okay. They would color and flavor the sangria. Personally I’m not a huge fan of the mushy texture frozen strawberries would have so I’m not sure I would want to pick out the boozy berries to eat, but that could be just me! If you try it, please report back. 🙂
Sounds like a fun camping trip. Hope you have a blast!

Hi! This looks amazing. I am normally a red sangria girl but with these super hot temps in so cal white seems more refreshing! I’m going to try it tomorrow but it’s for about 40 people so I guess I’m going to wing it. Any suggestions?
Hi Krista! Just make a little more than you think everyone will want … it goes fast! 😉

I made this last night! 😡 It was delicious! I actually had it sit overnight before adding the soda, but only because I decided that I wanted to make this at 9 o’clock at night. Haaah. Anyway, it was super refreshing! While the rum flavor was very minimal, I might try adding either a flavored rum or vodka next time. I’ll let you know how it turns out! 😀
Also, I blogged about this on my personal blog and linked back to you! (: Thanks for sharing this recipe with us!

I wanted a signature cocktail for my grad party so I tried this recipe. I was a little nervous because it was my first time making it, but they were the talk of the party! Everyone loved them! Not only were they delicious, but I served them in decorated mason jars. They came out adorable and colorful.

Oh man, this was awesome. It’s like adult lemonade. As with the pineapple mojito sangria, I subbed the lemon lime soda for zero cal (and less sweet) key lime sparkling water and it was FABULOUS!!! Next week, I’m trying the cherry lime watermelon recipe. Then I’m taking your ‘base’ recipe and trying to to pineapple mango cilantro jalapeño. I’ll let you know how that goes! 😉 Thank you for these delicious recipes!
Nice! I hope the cherry lime watermelon recipe turns out as good at the others for you! It’s a favorite, here. I cannot wait to hear how the cilantro and jalapeno spice things up (literally 😉 – sounds awesome!
Just made this sangria for a bridal shower/bachelorette party. Followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious! Will make it again for sure! I have made white sangria before but was looking for a new recipe when I found this one. Won’t need to look anymore! I’m anxious to check out the rest of your website too. Thanks for the great recipe!
