Raspberry Mango White Wine Sangria sings of springtime flavors! Gather friends for this fruity sangria recipe that is oh-so-delicious, yet simple to make. Makes one pitcher of homemade sangria; about 6 servings.
This spring sangria was developed with a bit of nerves, as I’m allergic to pineapple and bananas and tend to avoid tropical fruits because of those.
I purchased a mango for salsa, and it staring at me on the countertop… so I decided to chop it up and throw it into this Raspberry Sangria because raspberries and mango are a fun combination, in taste and color.
Why I love this white wine sangria recipe:
Why? It’s so much fun, and you can vary it up! And you can use SO MANY DIFFERENT FRUITS, too!
So today, we’re using raspberries and mangos combined with lime AND mint.
This is an excellent pitcher drink recipe for sharing and you could very easily make a batch of it to share with friends for an outdoor gathering.

Erin’s Easy Entertaining Tips
A fruity sangria recipe like this one is fabulous for entertaining, especially outdoor entertaining, because it’s cool and crisp and delicious.
It’s also perfect for a crowd, assuming your people aren’t incredibly thirsty. 😉
Here are some thoughts for serving this homemade sangria to a crowd:
- Make it the morning you’re hosting friends… or make it the night before. That way, your Mango Raspberry Sangria will have more than enough time to soak up the fruit flavors.
- Double the recipe. While this sangria is fabulous for a ladies’ night in, it only makes 6 servings. If you’re hosting 4 or more, I suggest making double the amount and having two pitchers of sangria in your fridge so everyone can have more than one glass if they so choose.
- Make it easier on yourself. If you’re worrying about the homemade simple syrup this fruity sangria recipe calls for, purchase bottled simple syrup* (affiliate link) from the grocery or Amazon to make your life easier.
Frequently Asked Questions
Well, it’s utterly DELICIOUS. (As if this combination of flavors could be bad.) The warm weather months are gonna be ALL about the fresh mint from my garden this year. Pairing it with mango, raspberry and lime was a smart move.
This sangria is super refreshing, slightly sweet and utterly perfect for a crowd.
For a white wine sangria recipe like this one, I like to use a light and crisp varietal, like a sauvignon blanc. It’s smooth and doesn’t have any super intense flavors, unlike a chardonnay, some of which can taste oaky.
For a red wine sangria, I lean toward a robust sauvignon cabernet because cabs can have a sweeter, fruity flavor.
Obviously, you can use whatever wine floats your boat in your sangria, but these are my favorites.
If you’re not a wine drinker, a sangria is the perfect choice to make your white wine taste better. 😉 The combination of fruits with lime juice and a little simple syrup adds some different flavors to the wine.
The color of wine used! A white sangria calls for white wine while a red sangria calls for red wine.
Generally speaking, you want the sangria to have enough time to be infused with the fruit flavors and chill. I recommend 10 hours for this particular recipe because I really want the fruit to soak into the wine mixture, but you could serve sangria in about 2 hours if you don’t have time to let it infuse for that long.
Tips and tricks for making this white wine sangria recipe
- Use frozen raspberries and mango if you can’t find ’em fresh.
- Not a sauvignon blanc fan? You can use another dry, crisp white wine. (I would avoid chardonnay because I don’t think the oakiness of it would pair well with this sangria.)
- This homemade sangria is naturally gluten free, so it’s safe to serve to gluten intolerant or allergic friends.
- If you want to make this sangria refined sugar free, I suggest purchasing a honey simple syrup or making one of your own. It’ll introduce a different sweetness to the sangria, but it’ll be equally delicious.
