This moscato sangria is an easy and fruity cocktail for the summer. It’s a simple to mix together with sweet moscato wine and fresh fruit. We love to serve this in the summer with fresh fruit.

Berry Moscato Sangria

One of my favorite things of summer is all the fresh berries. Whether it’s raspberries, blueberries or strawberries, one variety is pretty much guaranteed to be on sale at any given time. 

This easy moscato sangria recipe features fresh summer fruits (even better if they’re on sale!) and your favorite wine (ahem moscato). The delicious flavors of berries and citrus make this the best sangria cocktail, especially in the summer months. 

Serve it with sweet desserts like gluten-free angel food cake or chocolate covered raspberries.

Looking for a sangria for all the other seasons? Try apple cider sangria for fall, a spiced winter sangria (with red wine), and a fun frozen sangria for spring.

Ingredient Notes

This recipe comes together with a few alcoholic ingredients and a whole lot of fresh fruit. It’s the perfect recipe for sipping in the summer.

  • Raspberries: Fresh or frozen work well.
  • Strawberries: I prefer fresh strawberries here, but frozen berries work well too.
  • Peaches: slice these with the skin on or use frozen chopped peaches if they aren’t in season.
  • Oranges: I like to have some sort of citrus fruit to balance out the sweet flavors
  • Moscato: See the section below to learn more and find out the best Moscato to use for this summer sangria. You could also use your favorite white wine.
  • Raspberry vodka: You can use whatever brand is your favorite, or leave this out completely if you don’t want them as strong. A strawberry vodka would be great, too.
  • Chambord liqueur: This is just a raspberry liquor you can buy at the grocery store with the other liquor (or the liquor store). you can use an orange liqueur if you have that.
  • Ginger ale or club soda: Add some bubbles!

Which Moscato to Buy

What is Moscato? Moscato is a sweet wine and is often a dessert wine. You make it using the muscat grape. It has fruity notes, specifically of peaches and orange (the peach in this recipe are not an accident!).

Muscat grapes are one of the oldest varieties, and you can find them grown all over the world, with each region having their own style. Because of that, there are so many types of moscato to choose from. Here’s a quick guide to help you choose a bottle of wine at the grocery store.

  1. Sparkling Moscato: A lot of wines labeled as Moscato will be sparkly or bubbly (similar to soda). However, this is probably the only variety I will say to avoid for this recipe. We are mixing the moscato and allowing it to chill in the fridge for hours, which will result in a flat moscato.
  2. Still Moscato: Still Moscato is very similar, it just won’t have that bubble feeling on your tongue.
  3. Pink Moscato: This type of wine is more of a marketing ploy because of its pink hue. There isn’t much of a difference between pink and other Moscato. It usually has a bit of merlot to give it that pink color. It’s a really fun color to go with all the berries!

How to Make Moscato Sangria

Here are the simple steps to make the best sangria recipe. Skip down to the recipe card for the full recipe.

Add the fruit to the pitcher. Wash, dry, and place the raspberries in the pitcher. Slice the ends off the strawberries and slice them crosswise into rounds. Slice the oranges, leaving the peel on.

Stir in the alcohol and juice. Pour a chilled bottle of moscato into the pitcher along with Chambord, and juice. Stir to combine using a cocktail spoon or wooden spoon.

Chill the sangria. Place the pitcher in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or overnight (no more than 24 hours).

Serve and enjoy. Fill wine glasses with the sangria (don’t forget all that boozy-soaked fruit!). Top with club soda, ginger ale, or ginger beer.

Recipe FAQs

How Far in Advance Should you Make Sangria?

The best time range to soak fruit in sangria is between 2-24 hours. The closer to a day in advance the sangria chills in the fridge, the better it will be. I don’t recommend going over 24 hours because the fruits can break down too much and taste bitter.

What fruit is good in sangria?

You can’t really go wrong with any fruit in a sangria recipe, but my favorite is fruit that is in season.

For summer: Strawberries, raspberries (any berry, really), peaches, and other stone fruits are great.

For winter: Apples and citrus, like oranges are delicious.

Variations and Substitutions

  • Want this a little less sweet? Use another type of wine, like pinot grigio.
  • Use any extra fruit that is in season instead of berries. Fresh pineapple would be the perfect addition to this recipe.
  • Want to break up the alcohol a bit? Add 3/4 cup of fruit juice (like the juice from a fresh orange!).
