What is Champagne Sangria?

My take on champagne sangria elevates your basic sangria cocktail by using champagne instead of wine. It’s full of fruit, like cranberries and apples, to give it a mouthwatering punch of flavor.

What’s the Difference Between Champagne and Sparkling Wine?

Yes, champagne is a sparkling wine but sparkling wine is not necessarily always champagne. Why is this? The only sparkling wine that can be referred to as “champagne” is if it comes from the region of Champagne, France.

What is Sangria?

Sangria is an alcoholic beverage, normally made with red wine and chopped-up fruits. In recent years however, white sangria has risen in popularity, and uses white wine instead.

What Pairs Well With Champagne Sangria?

I love serving this drink with:

Are There Any Ingredient Alternatives?

Just like we discussed prior, champagne is sparkling wine that comes from a specific region in France. Meaning you are more than welcome to use sparkling wine for this recipe!

Can I Store Leftover Sangria Made with Champagne?

It’s best to drink this beverage as soon as it is served. It does not store in the fridge/freezer very well. Traditional sangria that uses wine is actually one of the only cocktails out there that’s great for storing.

However, since this one uses champagne, storing it means it will likely go flat. This is why I recommend drinking and enjoying it the day that it is whipped-up.
