Having guests for the holidays? Whip up this super simple fruity Five Ingredient White Sangria and make it a party. It's fruity, festive and oh so easy.
If you are like me this holiday season, you will have a houseful of family visiting. I think we are having overnight guests for two weeks straight with some swapping out here and there.
House guests are always better with cocktails in hand. I love serving gorgeous house cocktails that I can make in batches to keep the guests happy and relaxed. Serve this up with some Baked Brie with Fig Jam and they will be even happier!
Sangria originated in Spain and Portugal and the traditional recipes consist of red wine and fruit. I am a white wine lover so this recipe seemed appropriate. Sangria always contains fruit and often more alcohol like brandy or a flavored liqueur.
How To Make White Wine Sangria
Sangria is so easy to make. I like to mix it all together several hours before the party and let the fruit soak in all the goodness. Muddle that fruit in the bottom of the pitcher to get out some of the fruit juice. By the end of the night, everyone is fishing out that wine-soaked fruit, and it's delicious!
This Five Ingredient White Wine Sangria is...
Bottom's up to holiday entertaining!

That sounds like a ton of fun to have your family around you, and good for you for bringing your Dad. I am sure he does feel your love. This sangria... um, is it 5 o'clock yet because that looks amazing??!! So festive!
Thanks, Katie! Does it really have to be 5 o'clock? I say no, at least not during the holidays!

So sorry to hear about your Dad Karen. I know how you feel. It's a tough situation. There's nothing like spending the holidays with family though.
I love this sangria. It's always nice to have a pitcher or two around during the holidays for company. And Sauvignon Blanc is my favorite!! I love your photos!!
Will chardonnay work instead of sauvignon blanc?
Yes, I'm sure that would be fine! It might be sweeter but should be good. Thanks for your comment!
