Celebrate the ball drop in style with this citrusy and refreshing sangria!

Be an innovator and cheers to 2019 with this unlikely, but delicious cocktail that isn’t too boozy, so you can celebrate the New Year all night long.

White Sangria

Serves 7–8


1 bottle crisp, citrusy white. (Look for a Sauvignon Blanc or a Picpoul de Pinet, but an inexpensive Pinot Grigio will do in a pinch.)

1/4 cup orange liqueur, like Cointreau  

1/2 cup fruit juice in the citrus or tropical family, like orange or pineapple

1 1/2 cups cut-up fruit (I like peaches, mangoes, and sliced citrus fruits like oranges or lemons)

1 cup whole-leaf fresh herbs, like basil, mint, or tarragon

Club soda or seltzer


Macerate all the ingredients but the club soda for a few hours or overnight, if you can.

Pour over ice, top with club soda or seltzer

Enjoy with a colorful straw!
