ingredients and Substitutions
These are the main ingredients and substitutions for Pinot Noir Sangria. Be sure to scroll down to the recipe card at the bottom of this page for a full list of ingredients and instructions.
A bottle of your favorite Pinot Noir or just any red wine.
Triple sec is an orange liquor that adds a lovely flavor, you can also use brandy or cointreau.
Fresh orange juice adds a lovely flavor.
Sparkling water adds a bit of bubbles and fizz.
I love using agave to sweeten the mixture up, but you can also use maple syrup, honey or even sugar like cane sugar or monk fruit sweetener.
Sangria always has fresh fruit in it. I would recommend using nectarines/peaches, apples and oranges, but you can really use any type of fruit that you’d like!
how to make
ONE: In a large pitcher or bowl, add in the sliced fresh fruit followed by the remainder of the ingredients.
TWO: Mix well with a spoon and store in the fridge for about 2-3 hours or until chilled. Pour over ice, garnish and enjoy!
Tips and tricks
Sangria tastes better over time, so if you want to make it ahead of time you totally can!
Use ripe fruit for more flavor and added natural sweetness.
Don’t worry about getting an expensive bottle of wine, pick out an affordable one instead!
What is Sangria?
Sangria is an alcoholic beverage that originated in Spain and Portugal that traditionally consists of red wine and chopped fruit, often with other ingredients or spirits.
How to serve and store
Serve sangria chilled or over ice with chopped fresh fruit.
Store in a pitcher in the fridge and enjoy within 3 days.
I don’t recommend adding ice to the pitcher, but instead add ice to glasses right before serving. This helps prevent your sangria from becoming watery.
Pinot Noir Sangria is light, refreshing and slightly sweet! It is much sweeter than a glass of red wine on it’s own, but it can also be altered to make it as sweet as you want it to be.
frequently asked questions
No absolutely not! In fact, sangria was designed to be used with affordable wine. So don’t worry about picking out the best wine, just grab whichever one you gravitate toward.
Yes totally! I’d recommend 12-24 hours before you’re ready to serve! Don’t add ice to the pitcher, instead add ice to individual glasses before serving if desired.
