Everyone loves a sangria. The best thing about them is that no two are alike. There are white wine sangrias, red wine sangrias, citrus sangrias and now LYCHEE SANGRIAS! This simply, perfect sangria may rain over them all!
Pairing sweet lychees with fresh, bright citrus fruit is hands down the best sangria combo out there. You got the sweet, the zesty, the astringent - you got it all. Now all you need to do is get to the store and buy two bottles of pinot, the fruit and head to the kitchen to get choppin’!
We highly recommend selecting a dry white wine with notes of citrus, apple and pear to go well with the fruit in this sangria. The sangria will be optimal after chilling for 2 hours in the refrigerator to help all the fruits blend together…the hardest part but 100% worth the wait for sangria time!
Lychee sangria is the sangria you didn’t know you needed until now! Once you try lychees in your sangria, you won’t be going back to the classic sangria. We added peach schnapps for extra sweet fruitiness, but you could also substitute the lychee syrup for added flavor.

There’s nothing like sweet lychees and refreshing, crisp fruit paired in a dry white wine. Pour yourself a glass…or two and enjoy the sweet, fruity drink!
For garnish, string lychees and apple chunks on a toothpick and snack on the fruit while you sip your sangria. The toothpick makes a great fruit pick to get all those juicy fruit slices at the bottom of the glass too!
