White Sangria A lighter version of traditional sangria may use white instead of red wine. Peaches, cherries, and nectarines are added in White Sangria recipe to provide a sweet yet crisp flavor. Any white wine chosen for this recipe should not be too dry. It’s slightly less alcoholic than the classic, but equally maybe even dangerously refreshing.

¼ cup water
1 cup diced ripe peaches
¾ cup diced plums
1 cup pitted cherries

6 tablespoons orange juice
6 tablespoons lemon juice
