My White Wine Ginger Beer Sangria is delicious and a total hit at parties, and as an added bonus, it doesn’t stain! Perfect for breaking out your summer whites.
- White wine: The base of your drink, a dry white wine that isn’t too sweet, like chardonnay.
- Ginger simple syrup: Made with three simple ingredients: sugar, water, and fresh ginger root. Sweetens the drink while adding a punch of fresh ginger flavor.
- Orange, lemon, and lime juice: Citrusy, bright, acidic, fresh, delicious!
- Ginger beer: Much more intense in flavor than ginger ale, it has somewhat of a spicy finish.
How to Make White Wine Ginger Beer Sangria
Start your White Wine Ginger Beer Sangria by making your ginger simple syrup. Add equal parts sugar and water into a saucepan, then warm over the stove and stir.
Once the sugar has all dissolved, add the ginger root and let simmer for about a minute. Then remove from heat, and let it cool while infusing the ginger flavor.
Once cooled to room temperature, strain your simple syrup into a measuring cup or bowl.
Then in a large pitcher, pour in your choice of white wine. I added orange slices for fun, and is totally optional.
Then add in your fresh or store-bought orange juice.
Next you’ll add the fresh lemon and lime juice, being sure to catch any seeds that try to escape.
Follow it with the ginger simple syrup that you made, now cooled entirely.
Finish her off with the ginger beer, and give it a gentle stir.
When ready to serve, pour into glasses filled with ice.
Garnish with fresh orange, lemon, or lime slices for fun, and enjoy you White Wine Ginger Beer Sangria!
Frequently Asked Questions:
What is sangria typically made of?
The basics of sangria are wine, a sweetener, some sort of non-alcoholic beverage (like club soda), and fruit.
What kind of wine do you use for sangria?
Your classic Spanish sangria is usually made with red wine, but you can make sangria with whatever wine you prefer!
Can this drink be made ahead of time?
Yes, but not days in advance. The ginger beer adds a bit of a sparkling affect with its carbonation, so if you make it too early, you’ll lose that element.

Excited to try, sounds yummy and I ❤️Ginger Beer and Fever Tree products too! See there is a lime juice you recommend ( phew, saves me the time and workout of squeezing them like with my Moscow mules…)
Wondering if there is a lemon juice you recommend or do you suggest fresh like with the orange juice?
Thank you. Just discovered your site & it’s lovely 😊
I always use fresh lemon juice when possible!! Highly recommend!!! Enjoy!
Served this at a gathering of my friends. Everyone loved it! Very refreshing and not too sweet. I will definitely be making this again.
I’m so glad everyone loved it! It’s one of our favs too!
This sounds great and I want to try this for a party. I just want to clarify ginger beer not ginger ale. Do you recommend any brand of gingerbeer?
I’m a huge fan of fever tree!! Yes that’s correct, ginger beer. :)
This recipe is great. I usually drink red, but I had to try it. It was the party hit. Thanks. It was very refreshing and I plan to make it again and again.
Oh good I’m so glad everyone loved it Karen!
This is such a great recipe. This will definitely be a hit at my backyard gathers. The ginger flavor is the star of this show! Thank you????
I’m so glad you enjoyed it Gigi!
Great recipe! My friends wanted to know how I made it. I think it’s great for any occasion. Thanks for sharing!!!
So glad they enjoyed it!!
Are you sure that 2- 50 ml bottles of wine is right? That would only be 3 ounces of wine … less than half a cup. I really want to make this but I want to make sure it’s right. Thanks!
Oh my gosh I’m so sorry – a bottle of wine is 750 mL not 50! I just edited the recipe. :)
Is it giggle juice thirty, yet? :)
I mean seriously.
I love white sangria but can’t fathom why the ginger and sugar and ginger beer – that wold ruin it for me. There is enough sugar in the orange juice and wine itself. You have turned it into a pop.
Hi Carol – Have you tried the recipe? It’s not overly sweet at all as I hate sweet drinks. Fresh orange juice has no added sugar and offers more of a citrus flavor than sweetness. Additionally, this recipe is for two 50-ml bottles of dry white wine. Lastly, if you want it to be less sweet simply add less simple syrup and/or skip the ginger beer. It’s extremely versatile! You can also add more lemon juice. Let me know if I can help you brainstorm ways to make this drink fit your personal preference for sweetness but I ask you to please try it before claiming that I’ve ruined a recipe. Thank you!
I only said it would ruin it FOR ME; as it makes it more like pop than sangria. But I will try it and tweak it and see what I can come up with! Thanks!
Any ideas on amounts to make just 1 drink instead of a whole pitcher? Sounds yummy!
It will last a couple days in the fridge OR you can try using those mini bottles of wine?
Recipe for 1 (large glass):
6 oz wine
2 Tbsp orange juice
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 Tbsp ginger syrup
4 oz ginger beer
I did this because I was afraid I wouldn’t like it enough to make a whole pitcher, but it turned out delicious! Thanks for the recipe
This loos so refreshing! I love this.
Come drink some with me!! I’ll make us a healthy snack to balance it.
Typical sangrias are usually too sweet for me, but this sounds perfect! Especially thanks to the ginger beer…my favorite. :)
YES!! I am not a fan of sweet drinks. I hope you love this!
Love love love this version of sangria!! I would’ve never thought to add ginger beer. Perfect summer drink!! :) I’m definitely going to be making this one!
I heart ginger beer!!!
