I have always wanted to make sangria but never really knew how to do it. So after some research I came up with this delicious little combination. Hope you enjoy it because I sure did!

White Wine Sangria:


  • 1.75 liter White Wine (I used Chardonnay)
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Rum (I didn’t have regular rum)
  • 1/2 cup Triple Sec
  • 3/4 cup simple syrup
  • 1 can frozen lemonade
  • Can of pineapple chunks in pineapple juice
  • 1 apple, chopped
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 5-6 strawberries, sliced


In a large pitcher combine wine, rum, triple sec, syrup and lemonade. Stir to combine. Then add pineapple, apple, orange, lemon and strawberries. Stir to combine.

Place in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight to allow for a more fruity flavour.
