Virgin White Peach Sangria

It’s kind of a joke around Our Best Bites that I’m suuuuuper into fancy drinks. I love to make them. I love to drink them. In another life, I was probably a bartender. If you want a post full of mocktails, including a printable mini mocktail recipe book, click here! This recipe for Virgin Red Sangria is super popular, but as we move into the summer months, there is no better time for fruity, refreshing party drinks like this Virgin White Peach Sangria (although if you’d like to make it not so virginal, feel free to substitute a bottle of white wine for the white grape juice.) Girls’ night? Good. Summer barbecue? Good. Mother’s Day Brunch? Good. (This Joey from Friends joke will never get old.)

You’ll need some peaches, green grapes, sliced lemons, limes, and an orange, white grape juice (or wine, if that’s your preference), high-quality pulp free orange juice, a can of peach nectar (look for it in the Hispanic foods or near the canned juices). If you’re feeling wild, you could add in some whole raspberries (either in addition to the grapes or swap the grapes out for the raspberries.)

Take your sliced fruit…

and line the outside of your pitcher. (You don’t have to do this, it’s just really pretty.)

Place remaining fruit in a large pitcher.

Chill for several hours if possible. Immediately before serving, snag a bottle of sparkling mineral water. I love Topo Chico,

but you don’t have to get that fancy. If you’re serving a crowd all at once, add the bottle of sparkling mineral water to the sangria.

That said, I actually prefer to not add the sparkling water directly to the pitcher because it can dilute things too much and the bubbles are gone by the time you drink it. If possible, fill each glass about 1/2 full with ice, 3/4 with the sangria/fruit mixture, then top it off with the sparkling water. 

Serve over lots of ice, making sure some fruit gets into each glass.

Recipe Notes

For a non-virgin version...substitute 1 bottle of white wine for the grape juice.

  1. I’ve used non-alcoholic white wine in place of the white grape juice before. It isn’t as sweet as the juice and is still crisp and refreshing. However, it’s hard to find and the grocery store clerks look at you like you’re from another planet when you ask for it. Red dealcoholized wine is easier to find. Thanks for all the wonderful recipes!

    1. Ooooh, good idea! Fre is a good alternative, but those non-alcoholic wines seem to be sold in grocery stores that also sell alcohol…I don’t ever remember seeing them in dry states/towns. I don’t get all the laws!

      1. Fre is about the only brand I can find. Probably not too much request out there for any non-alcohol wine. Just from teetotalers like us!
