Light, Citrusy and Summer-Ready

A light, citrusy, refreshing and vibrant orange sangria that is perfect for kicking off the summer at your next barbecue or picnic on the beach.

Sangria is a fun cocktail to kick off the summer season. This citrus-intense white sangria is perfect for an early summer barbecue or a picnic on the beach. 

Gin and Aperol - Surprisingly Great Sangria Ingredients

Sangria is basically a concoction that includes wine, a hard liquor, fruit, a sweetener and your imagination. Check out my post on How to Make Sangria for more ideas for making this summery cocktail. This sangria uses white wine, aperol and gin as the alcohols. The result is surprisingly refreshing. The Aperol colors the drink neon orange. I can only imagine what it would look like under a blacklight!

Citrus Forward

I combine some of my favorite citrus fruits in this cocktail: blood oranges, kumquats and limes. 

Hendricks Gin

I use Hendrick's gin for its mellow, cucumber and rose flavor profile and add slices of crispy cucumber to the sangria to echo that profile.

Large Ice Cubes

Use oversized ice cubes to keep this drink cold without diluting it. 

The Best Part

The best part of this cocktail is the leftover fruit when you drain your glass!
