Make this Hibiscus Sangria recipe anytime you want a refreshing drink that is fruity and herbal. The caffeine-free hibiscus tea gives so much flavor and rad pink color! It’s a perfect sipper for a summer evening. It’s one of my favorite wine cocktails to make and serve for a happy hour at home.
This refreshing White Wine Hibiscus Sangria Recipe is one of my favorites to make when having friends over for a chill afternoon.
The lemon and lime bring out the citrus flavors in the hibiscus tea. And the strawberry and apple gives it a little more of a fruity punch.
Not only is the color gorgeous but the flavor is out of this world! I can’t wait for you to try this Hibiscus Tea Sangria!
Level up your white wine sangria with a zingy kick!
Why I love this recipe
You guys! SO refreshing. I’m not a fan of super sweet cocktails so I think this Hibiscus Sangria is perfect.
It has the fruity flavors that a traditional sangria recipe has which is awesome.
But it also has a zingy, herbal flavor from the hibiscus. Hibiscus is a flower that is packed with antioxidants and polyphenols.
Hibiscus is such a cool ingredient and it’s always great in cocktails. Plus it gives your boozy beverage a little health boost. (Not calling this a healthy drink – no way).

To make this White Wine Sangria recipe with Hibiscus you’ll need:
- Hibiscus tea bags
- white wine, chilled
This is my favorite Hibiscus Tea to use but if your store doesn’t have it, any will work.
As with all of my recipes, I like this list of ingredients to be a suggestion. If you don’t love these fruits, by all means, switch them up.
I think this Hibiscus Sangria would also be great with stone fruits like peaches and plums! Watermelon would be yummy too!
What kind of wine should I use?
My favorite kind of wine to use for this Sangria with Hibiscus is Sauvignon Blanc. It has a nice, bright fruity flavor while not being too sweet.
Pinot Grigio would also be great since they are even a little less fruity and have an herbal quality.
You could also make this sweeter by using a dessert wine like Viognier or Riesling.
If you’ve ever heard of Sangria de Jamaica, then you know you can also use red wine for this recipe. I’m not a red wine lover so I prefer white, but red is a very traditional choice!

Prepare the tea
Boil 2 cups of water in a small pot then add 2 hibiscus tea bags.
Continue on a low boil for 3-4 minutes.
Remove from heat, discard tea bags, and let cool for several minutes until cool enough to handle.
Pour the tea into a pitcher or large jar and place it in the refrigerator or freezer. Leave there until cool (it should only take about 30 minutes in the freezer).
Prep the fruit
Meanwhile, wash and slice all fruit and divide evenly into two 16-ounce mason jars or two tall glasses.
Add half a cup of chilled white wine (or more – you do you, boo) to each jar with fruit, and top off with half of the chilled hibiscus tea mixture. Enjoy!
For even more hibiscus flavor you can add a splash of hibiscus liqueur.
Or to make it a little boozier, add a shot of vodka.
