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! 🙂

What do you think about adding basil?
I think that’s a brilliant idea! I’ve added mint but never basil. It will definitely change the flavor, but I think for the better. If you try it please come back and let us know how it turns out!

I’m going to try this with lemon flavored sparkling water to cut down on the calories and sweetness – any thoughts or suggestions?
Hi – Do you use red or green apples?
I’ve used both, and I pretty much love them all! One that’s really pretty in this is pink lady (and tastes especially good, too).
OMG! Look so Delicious, Love to make this, thanks for the recipe as well 🙂
This was excellent, with both Pink Moscato and White Zinfandel. Thanks for the recipe!
This looks so tasty and refreshing. I love the color!
there is a Cuban restaurant here in NYC that serves bottomless sangria with more than a dozen varieties of all different hues during weekend brunch…my main reason for going.
This sounds so yummy! Great time to try it with this hot weather too! I’m going to have to try and find some sangrias.
i am having an open house for 50+ people. seems like i would likely have to buy a case of wine. we’ll have beer and i’m sure some people will bring their own beverages. how much does anyone recommend i make? thanks!
I made this recipe and filmed a review with friends! Thanks and gorgeous blog. 🙂 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUOiLJdsXZ0
Hi Valerie, just watched your video and it was hilarious! Thanks! Loved the end where you were cradling the pitcher – and yay, it was my recipe you were cradling! Victory! 😉 How can I score an invite to the next one?! 😉
Did you delete my comment? I actually did make a video review of your recipe! If you click the link to my URL, you can find it – it’s called Sangria Tasting Party! Yours was hands down the winner of the two sangrias we tried. I hope it’s OK that I reviewed it!
Yum yum yum!!! This looks so fresh and yummy!!! I think my readers will love this featured in my Summer Drinks post 🙂 Thanks so much for the tasty recipes!
Thanks so much Melissa!
This recipes looks delicious, however real sangria uses brandy not rum which is from the Caribbean not Spain.
YES! This is the best sangria recipe! Your recipe is very similar to mine and I love it. Definitely i will try it.
Has anyone tried it with a little extra rum….? 🙂
I have, and it really doesn’t hurt! 😉
I just want the damn recipie
It’s there. I even have a “skip to recipe” link at the top of the post if you don’t want to scroll down.
Looks ? yummy
Omg! This was so easy to make and better to drink! Thanks!
So glad you liked it! 🙂
I’m going to try it.
How much soda and sangria mix for each jar? Half and Half?
Thanks for sharing
Can I substitue dark rum instead of light rum? I bought light rum and unfortunately it dropped and broke while getting out the car, but I do have a dark rum in the house. Also, if I make it at 8am will that be sufficient time for the fruits to be infused by 3pm?
Dark rum should work, you might just detect the taste a bit more. Sorry about the rum bottle dropping; I’ve had that happen and it’s no fun!
And yes that should be plenty of time. It might not be as pink but plenty tasty.
I have my baby shower tomorrow and would like to provide this tasty drink for the non-preggos! I have a 2 gallon dispenser, how many times should I multiply this recipe?
Congrats! 🙂 Let’s see … a 750 ml bottle of wine is just under 1/4 gallon, so with all the added stuff I’m thinking maybe tripling it should do nicely for a 2 gallon dispenser.

going to make this for girls night, can i use vodka instead of rum?
How far in advance can I make this and how long will it last?
Thinking of making this tomorrow for the 4th of July. Would lemon flavored sparkling water work instead of sprite or 7-up? I am not a big soda drinker, however because soda is sweeter I didn’t know how it would affect the the sangria. Thanks!
The sweetened soda does help with flavor, but ultimately it depends on how sweet the wine is that you start with. Give it a try, it might be great! Or you could add a bit of simple syrup + the sparkling water if you find you still need a bit of sweetness.
Made this yesterday, to bring to a 4th of July party. I didn’t have rum, so I used pineapple juice. I used frozen strawberries so the drink would be cold to drink. It was great!! Easy to drink, very refreshing on a hot summer day, and pretty to see all the colors. Thank you, thank you!!! This will be my go to drink!!
I substituted fresh lemon and lime juice, club soda and simple syrup for the lemon and lime soda. I also cut up the fruit in small pieces that would flow more easily into the mouth (I resent it when Sangria fruit is too big to eat (gracefully) out of the glass. People loved it!

Very delicious. The only thing I did different was make a simple syrup and add it. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
Made this for my happy hour I hosted! Huge hit, not a drop left. Thank you for sharing
I am making this for tomorrow! I accidentally poured the lemon-lime soda in without waiting the 4-5 hours! Ugh! I am so mad at myself for not reading ahead! Will this ruin it?
It should still taste good! There just won’t be much carbonation.
That looks so tempting on a warm summer’s evening. A perfect party drink! Thank you for sharing this.
Hi I would love to make this for 100people how many bottles of wine should I buy and how many of Rum
Whoa 100 people! That sounds like a fun party. 🙂 If one batch serves six then about 16 batches should serve 100. So that’s 16 bottles of wine and 8 cups of rum, or about 3 gallons of wine and a little less than 2 liters of rum. I’ll watch for my invitation! 😉
Ohh! strawberry is one of my favorite items. So Delicious strawberries & lemon combination.I’m vegetarian & prefer to the planet based item.
