White Berry Lemon Sangrias

When it comes to alcoholic beverages, I usually stay away from beer. It makes me really bloated and I cannot stop thinking about all the carbs. It really doesn’t take much to get me tipsy and I usually face difficulty finishing a pint. Then I realise sangrias are perfect!. Diluted by a carbonated drink, taste fruity and a little on the sweeter side, a drink cannot be more perfect than this. The thing is that, you can’t bring a pitcher when you’re camping. What’s a better way than to package them into mason jars?! Just pop the lid, add ice and your fizzy soda and you’re done!

White Berry Lemon Sangrias

Time: 10 minutes + 4hr soak time

Yield: 8, 500ml mason jars


  • 2 lemons, thinly sliced
  • 1 apple, cored and sliced (any kind)
  • 1 cup strawberries, hulled and sliced lengthwise
  • 1 cup blackberries
  • 1 (750 ml) bottle white wine (a dry-ish white wine is best – I like Sauvignon Blanc) (about 1/2 cup per jar)
  • ½ cup white rum, divided (1 tablespoon per jar)
  • Approx. 4 cups lemon-lime soda or sprite if you are really desperate


  1. Divide lemon slices among the eight jars, then the apples, then the strawberries and blackberries.
  2. Pour the wine (1/2 cup each) and rum (1 tablespoon each) into each jar, over the fruit.
  3. Cover each jar with a lid and screw shut.
  4. Place in the refrigerator for 4 – 5 hours, or up to 12 hours.
  5. Remove from refrigerator. Add ice and pour lemon-lime soda to the top of the jar. Plop in a straw and serve.
