The beauty of this recipe is you don’t need to make a sangria. This recipe uses a ready-to-drink bottle of sangria, such as Pasmosa Sangria. (It used to be called Joya Sangria but they rebranded to Pasmosa.)

If you can’t find Pasmosa locally, they do ship to a variety of states. If your state isn’t one of them, there are other ready-to-drink sangrias on the market. Use your favorite.

  • A Bottle of Sangria
  • Lemon-Lime Soda
  • Lemon
  • Silver Tequila
  • Honey
  • Mixed Fresh Berries
  • Lemon Juice

A pitcher of sangria is one of the easiest beverages you’ll ever make. Typically made with brandy, this recipe substitutes silver tequila. Why did I choose a silver tequila, you ask? Well, it keeps this sangria mellow plus using a reposado or añejo would alter the color and I like how crisp this looks.

Sangria is a popular summer beverage but it’s really great for a party any time of year. Make this a holiday sangria by using limes and strawberries for the fruit. The red and green of the fruit are so festive for the season.

How do I serve Margarita Sangria?

You can serve this cocktail in any type of glass you have. I love the way it looks in a collins glass. I have these Stella highball glasses that really show off the beautiful fruit.

If you’re serving this for a party, use a beautiful pitcher, I have a green version of this Mexican glass pitcher, then pour it into the glasses.

If you’re wanting a little less bite and alcohol content, try my white wine sangria, made without the tequila. It’s just as refreshing and also perfect for entertaining.

Tips and Substitutions

As I mentioned above, there are a couple of ready-to-drink sangrias on the market but if you can’t find one, you can still make this recipe. Substitute white wine.

You need a white wine that is light, crisp, and refreshing. A pinot grigio is the best choice. While you could use a sauvignon blanc, they tend to have a much more earthy essence about them that I think would compete with the tequila.
