White Balsamic Sangria (Sangria Blanca)

It surprises our fans, but we extol the virtues of using good balsamic vinegar in cocktails all the time. Sangria is another example.

This recipe represents one of two styles of sangria - white (blanca). Our recipe below is for
Sangria Blanca, with a white wine base - it is usually lighter, lending itself more to a white balsamic, which tend to be more elegant. We also have a recipe for Traditional Spanish-style sangria, with a red Rioja base, which you can find here.


  • 1 bottle light fruity white wine, chilled (think Riesling, Moscato or Chenin Blanc)
  • ¼ cup brandy
  • ¼ cup Pastamore Pear with White Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 cup strawberries, sliced
  • 1 lime, sliced
  • 1 peach, peeled, pitted and sliced
  • ¼ cup super-fine sugar, or to taste
Combine all ingredients in a pitcher, add ice, and stir until the sugar is dissolved.

Some notes:

  1. Depending on how sweet you prefer things, you may want to omit or add less sugar.
  2. We used our Pear White Balsamic for this recipe, but we had wonderful results with our Passion Fruit and Ruby Red Grapefruit White Balsamic as well.
  3. There is nothing hard and fast on which fruits to use, citrus works well, of course, but pears or berries would also be fantastic.
