🍓 Why We Love This Recipe
- Super summery: This sangria is light, refreshing, and delicious. It's great for any summer occasion - whether that's a rehearsal dinner or a BBQ at your friend's house.

Here's everything you'll need to make this white wine strawberry peach sangria:
📋 Ingredient Notes
- Choice of wine: Opt for something dry and acidic, like Pinot Grigio or Riesling. We chose a Sauvignon Blanc for this recipe.
- If you'd prefer, you can also opt for something less traditional like Rosé, Prosecco or Cava (Spanish sparkling wine).
- Picking a pitcher: We use this tall, thin pitcher from Crate & Barrel all the time - it's sleek, classic and always looks great! For this particular sangria, we used this all-purpose pitcher.
- Basil: We opted to chiffonade basil for this recipe. If you need a primer on how to chiffonade, here's a great video. You basically just stack a few leaves, roll them up tightly, and slice them up.
- Elderflower liqueur: If you can't find any at the store, or if you don't have any in your liquor cabinet, you can substitute with a fruit liqueur or Gran Marnier or Triple Sec.
🔪 Step-by-step Instructions
PREP: Slice 1 cup of strawberries and 1 cup of peaches. Chiffonade the basil: stack leaves on top of one another, roll tightly, then cut perpendicular to the stack.
(1) Add sliced fruit and basil to a large pitcher.
(2) Pour in white wine, club soda, and ginger beer.
(3 & 4) Stir well and refrigerate for 2-4 hours before serving.

💭 Expert Tips and FAQs
- If you can't find any elderflower liqueur, you can substitute with a fruit liqueur or Gran Marnier or Triple Sec.
- Sangria can stay in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours. Any longer than that, and the fruit might start to become mushy.
- Let the sangria refrigerate for at least an hour to let the flavors of the strawberry and peach soak in to the sangria. (It also tastes much better chilled – nobody wants warm wine!).
- Use a sharp knife while chiffonading basil to prevent bruising.
Grab a few basil leaves and stack them on top of one another. Roll them lengthwise into a tight roll, then rock your knife back and forth to slice through. You'll end up with a bunch of long, thin strips of basil.
