Elderflower Sangria with Strawberries (White Sangria)

This Elderflower Sangria with Strawberries is the perfect fizzy & refreshing wine cocktail for the summer. This white sangria with St. Germain is perfect for hosting summer parties on the patio!

Looking for an easy to prepare cocktail that’s perfect for the upcoming summer season?

This White Sangria with Elderflower is just what you need.

It’s the perfect refreshing drink to bring along to picnics or BBQs because it’s light, fizzy, refreshing and served ice cold.

Ingredients needed

  • White Wine – Any dry white wine that you love will work. I like using Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc. You can also use a dry rosé wine.  
  • Elderflower Liqueur – aka St. Germain. This gives the sangria a lovely floral note.
  • Sparkling Water – You can also use lemon lime soda or ginger ale if you prefer a sweet sangria.
  • Strawberries – Or, swap in another favorite berry like raspberries, muddled blueberries or blackberries. Apples and pears are also delicious.
  • Lime – I muddle some lime to give my white sangria a citrusy note. You can also use lemon.

How to make it

  • Muddle the limes in the bottom of a pitcher.
  • Add strawberries, white wine and elderflower liqueur and stir.
  • Add ice to the pitcher.
  • Top off with club soda or lemon lime soda (if you prefer sweeter sangria).
  • Garnish with fresh mint leaves and/or edible flowers.

Which white wine is best for sangria?

  • For this white wine sangria with berries I’m using Pinot Grigio. Its bright, crisp notes pair perfectly with the strawberries and elderflower liqueur in this berry sangria.
  • You can also use Sauvignon Blanc or an unoaked Chardonnay.
  • Rosé wine is another delightful option.

How to garnish

I garnished my sangria with some gorgeous edible flowers. I used roses and primroses. Other edible flowers include pansies, lavender, borage and chrysanthemums.  Of course, you can always leave out the edible flowers and garnish it with a bit of fresh mint instead.

How long does it last?

  • Sangria will last in the refrigerator for up to two days. The longer it sits, the more pronounced the strawberry & lime flavors will become.

    Erin, these cocktails are GORGEOUS!! When I was in Ireland, elderflower liqueur was the most popular in cocktails (aside from whiskey, of course), which I loved because it’s such a nice flavor to add. Can’t wait to make this for summer parties!

    • Welcome back Marlynn! It feels like you were gone forever! I just learned to make margaritas with it too – equal parts elderflower, lime juice and tequila. It’s delicious!

    This sangria is soooo beautiful! I love all things elderflower, and I prefer white wine sangria over red, but don’t see it as often on bar menus. Look forward to trying your recipe!

    Um… yes please. I’m sitting here watching the bachelorette and wishing I was drinking this. Adding this to my list of drink recipes to try! This sounds so refreshing!

    So simple but how impressive looking… also sounds a little too refreshingly tasty that it’s all too easy to drink several glasses!

    Could this cocktail be any prettier?! How gorgeous. I’d want to grow some of these flowers myself just to make a fancy drink when friends come over. (Also it’s so important to go organic when using edible flowers!)
