20 Best Summer Sangria Recipes

These 20 summer Sangria recipes are refreshing, delicious, use of ALL the in-season produce, and will no doubt get you through the hottest July afternoons!

Nothing says summer like a pitcher of something cold and fruity that you can share with friends. So let’s talk about everyone’s favorite hot weather drink: SANGRIA!

Sangria is a perfect summer drink that you can do SO much with. It can be white, pink, carbonated, red, purple… you get it. You can pretty much have a different Sangria for every day of the week.

But what makes a Sangria a SUMMER Sangria? For me, it needs to be:

1. Refreshing
2. Uber fruity
3. Chilled (don’t skimp on the ice when it’s 90 degree out, please!)
4. Filled with lots of fresh summer produce

So get ready to grab some delicious fruit and herbs straight from the garden or from your grocery store shelves. (No judgement here as someone who can’t keep plants alive.)

The following are the 20 best Sangria recipes for summer in my humble — but totally correct — opinion. Have them by the pool, while grilling, with friends, or just because it’s a Wednesday and you wanna treat yoself.

I’ll stop with the preamble, let’s get to the list!

I don’t know about ya’ll, but I won’t consider it a successful summer until I’ve whipped up at least half of the Sangrias on this list. Also, if you have a favorite fruit, herb, wine, etc that you love adding to a summer sangria, please let me know in the comment section! I’m always looking to try (and drink) new things, and it’s going to be a long, HOT HOT HOT summer here in NC. Need to keep as hydrated as possible.
