Looking for an exciting new go-to drink? Try one of these Best Sangria Recipes for a perfectly balanced concoction of wine, fruit, and other tasty add-ins.

The best thing about Sangria is its versatility. It can contain white or red wine, spirits or sparkling water (or both), and a variety of fruits and herbs. So how can you possibly choose which is best?

Here’s my comprehensive list of the 9+ best Sangria recipes I have tried. Each is uniquely delicious, with simple and fresh ingredients that everyone will enjoy.

So whatever the season, whether you’re craving a wintery red or a summery white, this list has got what you need.

Green tip: Eating seasonally is one of the best (and most delicious) ways to support local and decrease your carbon footprint. Local foods have less associated transportation costs and fuel emissions. Simply put, eating seasonally = less environmental impact.

Choose a sangria that aligns with what’s in season! To check the seasonality of the ingredients in your area, use this Seasonal Food Guide.

9+ Best Sangria Recipes to try, plus this Sangria Moscato with Rum, which is a refreshing take on white wine sangria, balancing the sweetness of Moscato with tart citrus and apple.
Prep Time 5 minutes
Mixing Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 4 servings


  • 1 large grapefruit
  • 1 large green apple
  • 1 large lime
  • cup dark rum
  • 750 mL Moscato (750 mL = about 3 cups)
  • 1 cup sparkling water
  • 2 cups ice
  • ¼ cup simple syrup (optional)


  • Wash and cut your grapefruit, apple, and lime into 4 pieces. Add your fruit to a large pitcher.
  • Add the rum (and if you would like added sweetness, the simple syrup) and use a large wooden spoon to stir, pressing down on the citrus to muddle it and extract the juices.
  • Add your Moscato, sparkling water, and ice. Stir with your spoon and serve cold.

Pro Tips

  • Moscato is naturally really sweet, so this recipe does not call for any extra sugar. If you love your sangria super sweet, you can always add 1/4 cup of simple syrup.
  • I love how the dark rum mellows out the sweetness of the Moscato, but you can absolutely use light rum if you prefer.
