I’m a red wine girl! It’s not very often I have a bottle of Chardonnay in my fridge.

But when I entertain I am sure to have plenty of variety on hand.

After a summer dinner party, I had almost a full bottle of Chardonnay left over.

I confess. It’s just not my favorite. I prefer a Rosé or a Sauvignon Blanc. But I hate to toss a perfectly good and expensive bottle of Chardonnay.

So this recipe was born and boy was it ever delicious.

With plenty of summer’s fresh fruits in my fridge, I thought of no better way to use up that bottle of Chardonnay.

I’m a big fan of elderflower liqueur and I’ll use it in place of simple syrup any day. It adds a wonderful floral sweetness to any cocktail.

How to make sangria

For this sangria recipe, I grabbed a few peaches, sliced some sweet strawberries and tossed in some blueberries.

I mixed together Chardonnay and elderflower liqueur and placed this cocktail in the fridge to steep for about a half an hour.

A splash of club soda or sparkling water creates a spritzer style summer sipper that is refreshing and light.

It’s perfect for entertaining. Make a pitcher for a crowd or grab a glass for a single serving.

Not a Chardonnay drinker? This sangria is delicious with Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc.

  • I’ve never had elderflower liquor before, but it has a nice ring to it. Is it very sweet? I drink white wine almost exclusively because the red stains my teeth and leaves me with a headache the next morning, so this sangria is right up my alley.

    • Thanks Lisa. Elderflower is sweet on its own but it is usually used in place of a simple syrup in any kind of cocktail. It adds a wonderful floral note. You should try it soon.

    • It’s my fancy favorite. I use it in so many of my cocktails on my blog. You’ll definitely need to check out a few other recipes. Thanks so much.

  • I do love sangria. I have never had elderberry before though. I hear it has all kinds of healthy benefits.
