Let me just start out by saying that this camping sangria goes down a little too easily! 😉

Sangria is for sharing!

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.

This is camping sangria. Meaning it’s specifically designed to travel, making it the perfect make-ahead cocktail to take camping.

So, you’ll need a few things to make this portable and suitable for camping:

Watch how easy it is to make :


Have sangria, will travel.

The key here is the method of concocting and also storing this campsite-friendly beverage. So, once you gather everything you need to make this, you’re half way to making your first batch of camping sangria. 🙂

I first made this sangria on the fly before a camping trip and just used random fruit and soda I had on hand. What I had, happened to be grapes, peaches and strawberries. A little bit random. But it wasn’t bad!

What fruits work best in this sangria?

Truly, any combination of fruits can work in a sangria. You can get as creative as you want when you pick your fruits. I made another batch and tried to pick more tropical fruits in order to give it that vacationy-vibe! So choose your favorite fruit combo.

What mixer is best?

You can also choose your favorite carbonated beverage. I used Fresca because, again, that’s what I had. Any carbonated or non carbonated juice works as a mixer. I just happen to enjoy the bubbles.

What type of vodka works best?

You can also try flavored vodka. That’s another way to customize the taste of this sangria. The possibilities are endless!

Make this sangria your own!

Every time you go camping, have fun and mix up a new flavor combo to share! It’s a sure way to meet fried around the camp site, I’ll tell you that, ha!

Feel free to share any variations you’ve tried in the comments below.

Variations of this sangria I’ve tried

You’ll see my tropical 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 lidCheck out this Mason jar with pour lid

A company right here in my town of Erie, PA invented these awesome mason jar pour caps.

These mason jar caps are great for this particular recipe because it allows you to mix up and store your sangria concentrate. Then you can repurpose the mason jar as a drinking glass with a lid once you mix the sangria in your pitcher!

The lid keeps out bugs and prevent spills (party foul!). You can buy the mason jar pour caps on Amazon.

We used to get watermelons, cut a hole in it & put vodka, rum, tequila & anything else that we liked at the time. We let it soak overnight & drained the juice off for "cocktails" & ate the watermelon. Awesome & very intoxicating!

I just tried this recipe this weekend. I customized it to try what I liked and it was so yummy! I did the same fruit but I chose to use 44 north (huckleberry vodka), barefoot moscato and fresca. It was amazing!

Are you able to just leave the fruit out of this? Also would you be able to freeze it for it to stay cooler longer ?
