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! 🙂
