Strawberry Peach Sangria is a refreshing white wine sangria made with fresh strawberries, peaches, Peach Schnapps, and white wine.
Sangria is the perfect cocktail for warm weather. It’s a delicious blend of wine and fresh fruit served over ice.
What is Sangria?
Sangria originated in Spain and dates all the way back to the 1800s. It is a cocktail that combines wine, liquor, fruit, and spices. Sangria is made with either white or red wine. The type of wine used in the sangria dictates the flavor profile.
Red wine pairs well with dark berries and liquors. It also compliments holiday spices, like cinnamon or cloves. White wine has a lighter flavor and pairs well with citrus.
This Strawberry Peach Sangria combines white wine with peaches and strawberries to create a refreshing summer sangria. This sangria recipe also uses Peach Schnapps and simple syrup for additional flavor and sweetness.

Making Strawberry Peach Sangria
Start by chilling a bottle of white wine. The colder, the better. White blends, Sauvignon Blancs, and Pino Grigio work best with this sangria recipe. Moscato or Reisling would also work, but they wouldn’t require as much additional sweetener because they are sweeter wines.
Use Fresh or Frozen Fruit
While the wine is chilling, chop the strawberries and peaches. This recipe works with fresh or frozen fruit! If you use frozen fruit, be sure to let it thaw in the refrigerator for several hours. Thawed fruit is easier to cut into small pieces for the sangria.
Add the chopped fruit to the bottom of a large glass pitcher or carafe. Pour in the chilled white wine, Peach Schnapps, and simple syrup. Give it a good stir!
Homemade Simple Syrup
Simple syrup is one of the best ingredients for adding sweetness to a sangria. If you can stir, then you can make simple syrup!
- Add 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar to a small saucepan.
- Heat the saucepan on medium-low heat. It does not need to boil!
- Continuously stir the water sugar mixture until all of the sugar dissolves.
- Pour into a glass jar.
- Allow the syrup to cool in the refrigerator. It should last up to 6 months in the refrigerator!
The Longer Sangria Chills, The Better!
Allow the Strawberry Peach Sangria to chill in the refrigerator for several hours, or even overnight. The longer the sangria chills, the longer the flavors have a chance to meld together. If you drank it right away, it would not taste as fruity and delicious.
Serve the sangria in stemless wine glasses and garnish with a fresh strawberry. Be sure that each glass of sangria contains plenty of strawberries and peaches. That’s the best part!
If you prefer sangria ice cold, add ice to the glasses. I do not recommend adding ice to the pitcher of sangria itself. This may result in a watered-down flavor as the ice melts over time.
Enjoy a cold glass of Strawberry Peach sangria as you soak up the last few days of summer. It’s light and fruity, making it the perfect pairing for fresh dips and summer salads. Cheers!

I love wine, but I’ve never had sangria before – seems pretty easy too. I’ll have to give this a try sometime!
That looks so delicious and summery. I’m definitely going to have to try it.
Your sangria looks like a cool & refreshing drink for summer 🙂 My favourite summer drink (weel, any time of the year, really!) is strawberry daiquiri made with Bailey’s instead of rum. It’s like a strawberry & chocolate smoothie, and it’s delicious!
Yum!! I’m thinking about having a big jug of sangria at our wedding for during cocktail hour. Might have to try this one out!! Thanks for sharing!
I love wine, and I love sangria! I’ve never had a white sangria before, so I’ll have to try it! Bay Breeze is my favorite mixed drink of all time!
I loveee sangria! Totally weird since I don’t like drinking wine myself, but that’s not important! My family actually has jugs that they use specifically for it!
Looks so good. I may have to try this.
I LOVE sangria! Will definitely be trying this out. Thanks for sharing!
Looks good! I’m not typically a fan of sangria because I’ve only seen it made with red wine (which I strongly dislike) but I don’t mind white and might actually give this a shot!
No Cinco de Mayo plans for me. I have a baby shower to go to, which is as pretty non-party as you can get.
I will DEFINITELY be making this at our next get together. That looks so good!! I’m feeling pretty thirsty right now! 🙂
Look delish! I love white sangria! It is such a wonderful summer drink. I love to add in mango and apple to mine as well. Enjoy it!
I love wine, and I love sangria. I generally drink white wine (actually, the only time I drink red is when I’m having sangria), so a white wine sangria sounds awesome!
No Cinco de Mayo plans here. I have a much more important (well, to me) event to celebrate this Saturday–the Kentucky Derby! I’m a Kentucky girl, and while I won’t be going to the Derby this year, I will certainly be watching from home. I think we’re going to have a few people over, too. The Derby drink is the mint julep (got to like bourbon to enjoy that one), so sangria might be a good alternative for some of our non-bourbon-drinking guests.
Love wine and love sangria. There’s not a grape I discriminate. 🙂 Your recipe looks super yummy though. Thanks for sharing!
Oooooh this looks yummy. I’ve been wanting to try a sangria recipe again (the first time we made it, we overloaded it with fruit and it tasted like our compost pile…not that I frequently sample my compost pile…) and this might be just the one! Strawberries and peaches are 2 of my favorite fruits.
This will definitely be made and consumed this summer. I love margaritas, lava flows, miami vices, and piña coladas (from Cheeseburger in Paradise). Why, yes, I am a lush. Thanks for asking.
That looks dangerous. Like, I’d probably drink too much of it, dangerous. Also looks delicious!
Just wondering if a Pinot Grigio or Moscato wine would work?
I personally wouldn’t use a moscato because its already a sweet wine and the other ingredients are very sweet. I used the dry Chardonnay to counter balance the other sweet ingredients. But if you like it super sweet then go for it! Follow your heart! 😉
YUMMM! Definitely going to make this tonight! This looks divine! But I might have to trade white wine for champagne to add a little extra!
