Summer sipping on the patio has never tasted this good; Summer Sangria is the perfect White Wine Sangria Recipe. Blackberry Peach Sangria with Elderflower for a light floral touch to a fruit forward cocktail. Plus, it’s served in a jug on ice.
Sangria. Sweet, refreshing sangria. There is a lot to love about it, but perhaps my favourite is its adaptability. It’s one of the greatest non-recipes ever in all honesty.
Grab a jug, wine, sweet liquor, and some fruit for a roaring good time. Not that you shouldn’t try this recipe, because you should. It’s crazy good with perfect summer fruit paired with floral elderflower liquor.
Anyone else interested in diving in head first into this Blackberry Peach Sangria with Elderflower?
A new recipe to you, and a new recipe to me. I trolled through various websites and recipes on sangria and was mostly grossed out on how much sugar was involved with them.
So, I thought of a way to avoid adding simple syrup to sangria to save myself the sugar crash and completely unnecessary sweetening by using a sweeter white wine and elderflower liquor which is already on the sweet side.
I also opted for the elderflower liquor since I have an artificial orange allergy cannot consume brandy, Cointreau or any other orange “flavoured” liquors.
If you don’t end up using a sweet liquor or a sweet wine you’ll probably need to add a simple syrup to get the sangria vibe you’re looking for.
Which white wine is best for sangria?
It really depends on how you go about mixing your Sangria recipe. If you want to avoid sugar-packed fillers like soda pop or concentrated juices, an off dry wine like Riesling works perfectly.
If you want to add grape juice or other more sweet ingredients then a dry Pinot Gris or Sauvingon Blanc would be best.
What ingredients are in white sangria?
Here we used wine, liquor, and fruit … so basic you might be thinking. Till you take a sip and realize how perfectly the peaches and blackberries meld with the elderflower liquor and off-dry wine.
As a general rule of thumb, wine, a liquor like brandy or such, and fruit make a Sangria recipe.
