A flashy Sangria that is sure to light up any back deck party, this white wine Sangria is easy to make and quick to refill. It offers a powerful "cocktail-like" punch with its dash of vodka. Perfect for happy hour or a spontaneous gathering at any hour, this particular white wine sangria recipe gets rave reviews from both wine lovers and mixologists alike.

Prep Time: 8 minutes

Total Time: 8 minutes



Pour wine and vodka in a full sized pitcher and add sliced grapes, tangerine and pineapple. Next add sugar and stir gently, until blended. Chill mixture for at least one hour. Add club soda just before serving, to preserve the bubbles.

If you'd like to serve your Sangria right away, use chilled white wine and club soda and serve over lots of ice.

Addition ideas: sliced strawberries, a handful of fresh blackberries, banana slices, a half cup of citrus soda pop.

Add more vodka and less sugar!, Member evawclark

Love this refreshing drink with beautiful fruity presentation. But I suggest adding 1 cup of vodka (instead of 1/2 cup) and reducing the sugar to 1/4 cup if you prefer a stronger less sweet beverage as I do. Also added a few lemon slices. Enjoy!
