TGIF! Well, in 4 hours. It’s ok to start the weekend a little early.

I am so excited for this weekend because I’m going home to my parents’ house in Philly. Have I told you we’re moving to Philly later this year? Yup, moving 100 miles north one month before wedding – why not throw a little more stress into the mix, right?

I’ll be needing a lot of this fruity sangria to get through it all.

My mom is throwing a cookbook signing party with all our family friends this Sunday. Lots of friends, cookies, cookbooks, and sangria. Mom is so proud of my cookbook; she carries it around in her purse.

In light of the big celebrations ahead, I made a pitcher of this sparkly fruit sangria. Colorful and fizzy, this sangria is full of champagne, sweet white wine, oranges, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, a kiss of lemon, a touch of OJ, and a lot of sparkle.

Go big or go home!

A crowd-pleasing bubbly, fruity white sangria that is perfect for any occasion!

This bubbly white sangria tastes like an upscale, fancy mimosa. You’ve got your orange juice and champagne, but also a little sweet wine and other juicy fruits to soak it all up. It’s the perfect cocktail for bridal showers, brunch, dinner parties, girls’ nights, etc.

When done right, sangria is a true crowd pleaser. It’s not as potent as drinking a plain glass of wine or as dry as a glass of certain champagnes. Rather, it’s light, sweet, and vibrant. Not to mention sangria’s visual appeal. I mean honestly – how can you turn down a cocktail this colorful and charming?!

The beauty of this sparkling cocktail? There are so many ways to customize it! Want it a little sweeter? Add some agave or honey to taste. Too sweet? Add a splash of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Add a handful of blackberries, juicy peach slices, or a thinly sliced Granny Smith apple. Use peach nectar instead of orange juice or add a splash of cranberry juice. Add some kiwi for color or even a few pomegranate seeds. If you have extra fruit in your fridge – toss it in.

As long as you stick to the amount of fruit, the 1:1 ratio of champagne to wine, and the added liquid – you can have fun with this sangria and make it perfect to fit your occasion or taste. This is your cocktail; make it how you like it!

The most important step for your sangria is to let the fruit soak. This means that you’ll have to think ahead and prepare your sangria a few hours before it’s served. It doesn’t take long to prepare; just a few minutes to slice the orange and lemon. You want the fruit to marinate in the wine for at least 3+ hours. We all love our booze-soaked fruit. It’s the best part!

Sparkling Fruit Sangria filled with champagne, berries, oranges, and more. There's always a reason for celebrating with sangria!

A good tip: if adding ice to your sangria, do not add it directly into your pitcher. Rather, add ice to the individual glasses. Trust me, the sparkling sangria won’t last long enough in the glasses to become watered down.

Sparkling Fruit Sangria

A crowd-pleasing bubbly, fruity white sangria that is perfect for any occasion!


  • 1 orange, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 10 large strawberries, sliced
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 750ml bottle sweet white wine (I use Riesling)
  • 1 750ml bottle your favorite champagne


  1. Place all fruit and orange juice in a large pitcher or bowl, add wine and allow to sit in the refrigerator for 3 - 24 hours. Right before serving, add champagne.
  2. Taste; if you'd like it to be sweeter, add 1/4 cup granulated sugar, honey, or agave. Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes:

Traditional sangria usually includes a little brandy. By all means, go ahead and add 1/4 cup to the pitcher. I don't typically keep brandy in the liquor cabinet so I didn't add it.

  5. Congratulations on your cookbook Sally. Going to order one.

    Love sangria, will be using your recipe

  6. My son lives in Mannayunk…5minutes from Philly…so we get there quite often…love Philly! Maybe I will carry your baking book in my purse also…just in case I run into you…so you can sign it! Ha. Love the sangria…my daughter always wants me to make one…I will have this ready for her when she walks in the door for Easter from college….cheers!!

    • Lis! I love going to Manayunk. Haven’t been there in a couple years, but I’m excited to visit. Such a fun town. Your daughter will just love this stuff, I’m sure!

  7. Congrats on moving to philly! I moved here (Philly) a few months ago and it’s nice but not better than NYC 😀

  8. I am always in the mood for good sangria 🙂 love this

  9. Ooooh Sally, you are making me thirsty! This looks so refreshing and delicious! What a fun drink to make for a party! Exciting news about the move – what a big year for you! My husband is from Philly and went to law school there!

  10. Oh this gorgeous, fruity sangria reminds me that Spring is (supposedly) on its way! And then summer! I’ll have to bookmark this gorgeous sangria to welcome the season for sure! 😀

  11. Sangria is a must when it comes to moving and wedding stress. Oh and sangria is also necessary with a spanking new puppy terrorizing the house!

  12. Hi I am in New Mexico, It’s starting to get really warm out here. I want to make this sangria but I’m not much of a champagne drinker so I don’t know which one to use. What kind of champagne do you recommend?

  13. Hi I was looking to make this for a party this weekend. I have a bottle of barefoot perfectly pink champagne. Would that work? I’m looking to use it up. I was going to use mascato wine and that champagne. I wasn’t sure if it would be too sweet. Thank you.

  14. Sally,I must say….Your website is FANTASTIC!!!! I am going to try everything from your blog in this summer InshaAllah (if God wills) I had a question in mind I wanted to ask you, in this Sangria recipie there are a few ingredients which include alcohol and we are Muslims,so we are not allowed to drink alcohol. Is there any good substitute for it? Thankyou so much

  15. I like to add Daily’s Mango puree to my mix!!

  16. Is the 1 cup of orange juice supposed to be added when the fruit/wine mixture have settled?

  17. Hello,

    Any substitutions for the champagne you have explored with? Not a huge fan of champagne, but everything else sounds delicicous. Thanks!

    • Hey Lauren. I would simply use another 750ml bottle of the white wine. Then, add a splash of sparkling water to each glass. Do not at the sparkling water to the pitcher before the sangria sits; the sparkling water will lose its fizz.

  18. found this recipe on Pinterest. I made it for a brunch with some friends. DELISH!  It was so fresh and light!  It’s was gone in no time!  Thanks!  

  19. Would frozen mixed berries work in this recipe?

  20. Hi Sally! I’m not a sweet white wine fan. Can I substitute a pinot grigio?

  21. This looks great! Can I make this the night before or should I make it only a few hours ahead of time?

  22. Can you use frozen berries?

  23. if I double the recipe will it still come out good? Any tips? 

  24. So, I made this 24 hours ahead of party time. TO get it ready and let soak. The bad part is, I didn’t pay attention to the fact the champagne goes in just before serving. So now my wine, OJ, and all my fruits and stuff are in the mix marinading with the champagne in the fridge. Is this going to taste horrible now? Assuming the champagne will be flat and all? Or is there a way to still fix this? Maybe add a little more champagne before serving? Or some Sprite to add fizz? I used 2 bottles of wine and only 1 bottle of champagne- if that helps to paint that picture any better
    Should I throw this out or do you think it is salvageable?

  25. Hi Sally,
    Bit of a silly question, but I wanted to make this for my birthday in a few weeks (as well as the strawberry and kiwi margaritas!) but I’m not actually a big fan of oranges and orange juice…
    Is there any acceptable substitute? Perhaps a breakfast juice and just leave out the orange slices?
    If you think this will detract from the flavour too much, I’m happy to follow as written because I am sure everyone else will still love the oranges! And I’ll still have the margaritas for me 🙂

    • So perfect for a bday celebration! I feel like any juice would be great- like pineapple or maybe even cranberry, cran raspberry, etc.

  26. when do you add the brandy. at the same time it goes into the fridge or when you put the champagne 

  27. This was so delicious! It was very easy and everyone loved it. It’s the perfect summer drink. Thank you for your wonderful recipes.
