Why You’ll Love This Sweet Tea Sangria

Summertime perfection – I do love a great cocktail, especially in the summertime and this Sweet Tea Sangria is perfect for summer barbecues, brunches or showers.

Homemade sweet tea – I used my own homemade sweet tea recipe to make this iced tea sangria but your own recipe or store-bought sweet tea will work just fine.

Southern twist on a classic drink – This wine and tea cocktail is adds a nice southern spin to a classic sangria. It will quickly become of your favorites, as it already has mine.

Easy to make – Whenever you have some fresh summer fruit lying around, whip up a quick batch of sweet tea and mix it with a bottle of white wine. Toss in your favorite fruit then let it sit a few hours before enjoying – it really couldn’t be easier.

Sweet Tea Sangria Ingredients

  • Sweet tea: Any brand of sweet tea will work or you can make your own homemade sweet tea.
  • White wine: The sweet tea will add the sweetness so opt for a dryer, crisp white wine such as a Pinot Grigio/Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Grenache Blanc or a dry Riesling such as a French Riesling. If you’re unsure just go with the old adage, use what you like to drink, and a sangria doesn’t need a fancy bottle of wine.
  • Fresh Fruit: This recipe calls for raspberries and peaches but the beauty of sangria is that many fruit combinations will work. Nectarines, plums, apricots and strawberries would pair well with this recipe in any combination that you prefer.
  • Fresh mint: To garnish.

Sweet Tea Sangria Tips & Variations

  • Storing in the fridge before serving allows time for the fruit to infuse with the sweet tea.
  • If you prefer a sweeter sangria try using a sweeter white wine such as a Moscato, Sauterne, Gewurztraminer or sweet Riesling.
  • I used peaches and raspberries but the beauty of a sangria is that you can use a variety of fruit flavors so choose by preference, seasonality, or what’s on hand.
  • Sweet tea sangria can be stored for up to 3 days in the refrigerator.

I have 2 pitchers of this chilling in my refrigerator right now for game night tonight! I wish I had read the suggestion about not using chardonnay but I also added peach schnapps. So we'll see how it turns out!

This looks great. I've been looking for a light dessert that incorporates raspberries and this looks like a winner. I use bon maman raspberry jam because I think it has the best raspberry flavor. I've tried alot of the sugar free varieties and found they don';t have the same tartness that you find with a good raspberry. So, I use bon maman or else reduce fresh raspberries with sugar if I have the time and the berries.

I'm, going to try this with a ganache topping. It looks really nice. I think the whipped cream and raspberry jam mixed with the chocolate cookies is a fantastic combo. I've done icebox cakes before and love them I think they set really well and the long set time is great for the flavor.
