White Wine Sangria with Strawberries & Elderflower

White Wine Sangria with Strawberries & Elderflower Liqueur is the perfect fizzy & refreshing wine cocktail for the summer.

Looking for an easy to prepare cocktail that’s perfect for the upcoming summer season? This White Wine Sangria 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.

I’m making my version with strawberries, limes and elderflower liqueur to give it a floral note. I’m also garnishing it 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 off the edible flowers and garnish it with a bit of fresh mint.

How do You Make White Wine Sangria

  • Muddle limes in pitcher.
  • Add strawberries, white wine and elderflower liqueur and stir.
  • Fill pitcher with ice.
  • Top off with soda water or lemon lime soda (if you prefer sweeter sangria).
  • Garnish with mint sprigs and/or edible flowers.

Which White Wine for Sangria

  • For this white wine sangria with berries I’m using Mezzacorona Pinot Grigio. This delightful Pinot Grigio has aromatic crisp green apple, mineral and honeysuckle notes.

Mezzacorona Pinot Grigio is cultivated in immaculate vineyards along the Adige valley surrounded by the magnificent Italian Alps and is non-GMO certified. It’s bright, crisp notes pair perfectly with the strawberries and elderflower liqueur in this berry sangria.

How Long Does Sangria 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!

    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!)
