How to Make Sangria

Updated March 26, 2020
Drinks served from a pitcher can save you the hassle of having to deal with garbage bags full of bottles and cans—plus it’ll also make you look super classy and adult-like. Perhaps the most beloved pitcher cocktail is sangria: a zesty blend of wine, brandy and fruit.

An icy pitcher of sangria is a great excuse to drink wine with brunch! Another great thing about sangria is that it's versatile, because you can make it with either red or white wine. Better yet, these Spanish drinks are best when made the night before you want to serve them, which makes planning the day of an event that much easier.

How to Make Red Wine Sangria

To make red sangria, combine one sliced orange, a cubed green apple, a cup of halved grapes, 1/4 cup of brandy and a bottle of dry red wine in a pitcher. When it's time to serve, just pour it over glasses of ice and even add a splash of lemon-lime soda if that's your bag.

How to Make White Wine Sangria

If you want to try out the lighter version, slice up a peach, a nectarine and a plum, then halve about 15 cherries and combine with a couple of shots of peach schnapps and a bottle of dry white wine.
