Sangria is right up there with tequila as one of those alcoholic beverages that it seems everyone has a story about. It’s always either a “I’ll never drink that again” story or a “well last time I had that things got a little crazy” story.

As much as I like the potent, red wine version of the Spanish summer sipper, there is something about white wine (and of course, plump red strawberries but that goes without saying around herre) that screams summer and tempts me to shelve the red vino until September.

I have no aversion to sangria (tequila is another story) but even if you do, I recommend that you give this a try. My friend Angie and I made a double-batch for a friend’s birthday party over Memorial Day weekend and it would be an understatement to say that none of the party guests have sangria aversions either.

Tequila? That might be another story for another day.

    […] While I do love shopping locally from farmer’s markets and supporting the vendors in my region, Chicago weather really isn’t the most conducive to seasonal produce. It’s not because it’s cold all year round , but because the weather can be unpredictable. Here we are on the brink of May, but the weather has been more conducive to a pot of Italian beef stew than it has to strawberry sangria.  […]

    So, I was thinking of adding frozen strawberries instead (I buy them fresh, cut, and then freeze them at home bc I like that it’s cheaper *winkwink*). Do you think it’d still be as good?

    Just made this. It is chilling as we speak. I’m only going to wait 30 mins. I put it in the freezer! Hope it’s as good as it looks.

    I used the pinot grigio but next time would replace for a Reisling which is a little sweeter. I thought the wine was too dry for this recipe.

      Peach would be delicious. They have strawberry schnapps at my grocery store. I guess it could be hard to find!

    I love this idea. I usually avoid using strawberries, worried they won’t hold up. But 1-4 hours then to my stomach. Well, OK.

    This looks so good. Too bad I’ve already gone through all of my strawberries! I like to make a peach sangria with white wine in the fall…I love how the fruit taste really comes through with white wine.

    That looks so refreshingly good. I have always thought of sangria as a heavy red wine–this looks amazing.
