Peach Mango Sangria

Unlike other sangrias that are usually made with dark red wine, this light peach mango sangria uses white wine and is delightfully energizing. The delicate floral sweetness of peach and mango complements the fragrant Viognier.


  • It’s best to make the sangria mix the night before or hours prior to the event. The fruits will soak up the flavor of the wine and lend sweetness to the mango cocktail! Serve with additional frozen chunks of peaches and mangoes to make it even more refreshing!
Mixing up this Peach Mango Sangria is literally a walk in the park! You just need Viognier or any dry white wine mixed with Grand Marnier, sweetener, mangoes, peaches, and mint leaves. It’s the perfect concoction for patio or backyard parties with your friends and family.
