Red & White Sangria (No Sugar Added!)

As you may remember from my Fourth of July post, I made both red and white sangria for the BBQ party Mark and I held. In the interest of keeping my diet to only naturally occurring sugar, I made both versions without any added sugar.

Admittedly, there is surely added sugar in both the Triple Sec and the coconut rum, but I did my best.

Please find the (very simple) recipes below!

Red Sangria

2 batches

Ingredients:

  • 2 bottles red wine (I used pinot noir)
  • 2/3 bottle sparkling water
  • 1 1/4 cup Triple Sec
  • 3 blood oranges, sliced
  • 2 sweet yellow peaches, sliced
  • 1/2 mango, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups pineapple, diced

White Sangria

2 batches

Ingredients:

  • 2 bottles white wine (I used pinot grigio)
  • 2/3 bottle sparkling water
  • 1/2 cup Triple Sec*
  • 3/4 cup coconut rum*
  • 3 blood oranges, sliced
  • 2 sweet yellow peaches, sliced
  • 1/2 mango, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups pineapple, diced

*Note: Next time, I think I’d do opposite proportions here — as in, 1/2 cup coconut rum & 1 cup Triple Sec. The sangria was good, but very coconutty.

Directions (for both red & white):

A few hours before serving, pour wine & liquor over the fruit into whatever receptacle you plan on using to serve the sangria. Stir and refrigerate. Add sparkling water just before serving and gently stir again.

That’s it!

  1. This looks super good! I am always thinking I should make sangria but it seemed intimidating. I’ll have to try this recipe out 🙂

  2. I made sangria on the 4th too! Great minds!

  3. oohh looks so good and refreshing!

  4. Love the idea to put blood oranges in! I had a sangria last Monday and that had blueberries in it-sooooo good. I wanted to eat a bowl of boozy fruit. But I definitely need to do the blood orange thing. That would be pretty in a white sangria with blueberries…
