Camping Sangria

Let me just start out by saying that this goes down a little too easily! I highly recommend making lots of friends around the campsite and sharing this tasty little beverage. Especially if you plan to eat any of the fruit, a cup or two will be plenty. Trust me.

So, this is camping sangria. Meaning it’s specifically designed to travel. So, you’ll need: a quart-sized mason jar with lid, a 1-gallon pitcher or dispenser and a wine cork.

I want to just add that I made this on the fly before a camping trip and just used random fruit and soda I had on hand. I’ll be honest. It wasn’t at all bad but I’m sure there are even better fruit combinations. Try using your favorite fruits and carbonated beverage. You can also try flavored vodka. The possibilities are endless! Feel free to share any variations you’ve tried in the comments below.

You’ll see one recent variation if you click to the left on the image slider above where I used Limoncello (instead of vodka) peaches, pineapples, papaya and cran-pineapple juice for a more tropical flavor. Campsite luau anyone?? Mason Jar Pour Cap

Pro tip: A company right here in my hometown of Erie, PA invented these awesome mason jar pour caps. So, after you mix up your sangria, you can turn your mason jar into a seal-able drinking cup to keep out bugs and prevent spills (party foul!). What, what?! You can buy the mason jar pour caps on Amazon.

Oh and since you’re cool campers like us, 😉 here’s one other thing you might like — check out our Campfire Rotisserie Chicken recipe.

Thanks, friends. Happy camping!


  • 1. Fill up the mason jar with peaches, strawberries and grapes.
  • 2. Pour in vodka a 1/4 of the way up the jar. Fill up the remainder of the jar with wine; cork the rest of your wine.
  • 3. Chill sangria concentrate overnight or at least for several hours.
  • 4. Pack up the sangria concentrate, 1-liter bottle of Fresca and remaining wine in an insulated bag. When you get to the campsite, mix all 3 together in the pitcher and enjoy!
  • 5. Remember to drink responsibly!
