Stone Fruit White Sangria

white sangria recipeFor more delicious recipes from Nancy, head on over to her website, SkinnyKitchen. This sangria recipe was originally featured there.

This white sangria is a perfect cocktail for summertime entertaining. Stone fruits like peaches, plums and nectarines, are a great addition to this fruity, refreshing drink.

What I love most about sangria is its beauty, taste and versatility. Since there is a lot going on in sangria, the finer notes of the wine often get lost so I’m going to admit it – I’m using a reasonably priced wine for this recipe. You might be familiar with the “two buck Chuck” from Trader Joe’s called Charles Shaw. It actually costs about $2 a bottle (hence the nickname!). I’m using their Pinot Grigio, but any white wine will work. There are no rules for making sangria as long as you add generous portions of fresh fruit. If you like a sweeter mixture, add some sugar. If you like more citrus, add lemon and lime slices or some orange juice. I’m adding diet 7-up to make it bubbly but you can also use club soda. Just keep mixing and tasting until you’re happy with the results—and be sure to make twice as much as you think you’ll need! Each serving, 133 calories, 0 fat and 5 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS. 

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Chill Time: 4 hours or overnight


6 peaches, plums or nectarines, or your favorite combination of stone fruits, halved, pitted and sliced ¼-inch thick pieces

1½ cups juice – Try Ocean Spray’s Cran-Peach juice, apple juice or white grape juice

1 or 2 cans diet 7-up or diet Sprite, to taste

¼ cup orange liqueur, such as Cointreau or orange juice

1 bottle (750ml) Trader Joe’s Charles Shaw Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay or your favorite cheap white wine

Ice cubes for serving


1. In a large pitcher combine the fruit, juice, orange liqueur and wine. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours (or up to 12 hours).

2. Just before serving stir in the 7-up. Ladle the sangria into ice-filled glasses. Be sure each glass gets ample fruit.

3. Serve immediately.

Serves 8 (about 1½ cups each)

Food Fact

Drupe fruits, known to most of us as stone fruits, are any thin skinned fruits with a succulent, soft flesh and hard stone or seed in the middle. These include fruits such as, plums, cherries, peaches, nectarines and apricots.

Health Benefits

Peaches and nectarines both contain a good amount of vitamin C, small amounts of fiber and are low in calories.

Plums are a good source of potassium. They contain a little vitamin C, A and E.

Shopping Tips

You’ll find Ocean Spray’s Cran-Peach in the juice aisle of most supermarkets.

There are so many varieties of peaches, plums and nectarines you can use. I’m using a combination of white and yellow peaches, nectarines, and red and black plums.

Substitution Tips

The key to keeping this sangria white is to use a light colored juice. Apple or white grape juice also taste great in this recipe.

Make this sangria alcohol-free by swapping white grape juice or apple juice for the wine. This turns it into a great summertime drink for kids.
