An easy, refreshing keto sangria recipe without sugar-added to refresh on hot days on your keto diet.

Bonus, this keto-friendly sangria recipe only contains 3.3 grams of net carb per 1/2 cup compared to 15 grams in a classic Sangria recipe.

Disclaimer: Consumption of alcoholic drinks negatively affects your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health and behavioral problems if consumed in excess. On a keto diet, you might need significantly less alcohol to get severely intoxicated. Women should not drink alcoholic beverages during pregnancy. Alcohol leads to addiction. If you need help, call your local Addiction Center (In the US: (866) 399-3979, in Canada: 1-800-565-8603, in the UK: 0300-123-1110, in Australia: 1300-85-85-84, in NZ: 0800 787 797).

What’s Sangria?

Sangria is an alcoholic cocktail from Spain and Portugal made with red wine, chopped fruits, a spirit, and that is sweetened with sugar and orange juice. It’s a popular Summer festive drink served on ice.

The term Sangria means bloodletting. It is believed it is due to the color of the drink, but the exact reason Sangria is called this way is unknown.

Is Sangria Keto-Friendly?

The classic Sangria recipe is high in carbs and sugar, so it is not keto-friendly.

A traditional Sangria recipe uses fruits like apples, peaches, pineapple, and orange and is sweetened with sugar and orange juice.

As a result, a classic Sangria recipe is not keto-friendly because of all the added sugar. An authentic sangria contains on average 15 grams of net carbs per 1/2 cup of sangria.

How To Make A Keto Sangria Recipe

It’s very simple to make a low-carb sangria recipe. All you need is a few twists to the traditional beverage to cut down the carbs and sugar.

Keto sangria ingredients:

Let’s see the ingredients you need to make a diabetic-friendly sangria at home:

  • Dry wine – see below my recommendation for dry red wine or white wine.
  • Brandy – all spirits contain zero carbs per serve, so you can pretty much use any spirit from tequila to vodka. But a traditional Sangria uses brandy.
  • Erythritol – this is your sugar-free keto-friendly sweetener that replaces the regular sugar found in a Sangria recipe.
  • Orange liquid stevia drops – this adds the particular orange flavor we love in Sangria without adding orange juice and its sugar.
  • Keto-friendly fruits – see below for details.

Combine keto alcohol and fruits

There’s nothing easier than making your own Sangria at home.

First, prepare a large pitcher or mixing bowl that can contain the amount of liquid in one bottle of wine plus the remaining ingredients.

Next, combine dry red wine, spirit, and erythritol. Next, muddle up lime slices, lemon slices, and berries -fresh or frozen.

Just before serving, add ice cubes into the pitcher and serve.

Storage Instructions

You can store Sangria in the fridge for up to 48 hours. After that time, the fruits go bad, and it’s not recommended to drink the cocktail anymore.

To make the sangria ahead, simply prepare the chopped fruits and alcohol mixture separately. Then, store in the fridge and assemble the drink just before serving.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best low-carb sangria wine?

The best keto alcohols to use in a Sangria are dry or extra-dry wine.

For red sangria, choose from:

  • Pinot noir (3.4g net carb/serving)
  • Syrah (3.8g net carb/serving)

For white sangria, choose from these dry white wines:

  • Verdicchia (3.2g net carb/serving)
  • Chardonnay (3.2g net carb/serving)

Finally, for bubbly white sangria, use extra-dry white wine like:

  • Prosecco (2g net carb/serving)
  • Champagne (2g net carb/serving)

What are the best fruits to put in a keto sangria?

There are plenty of keto-friendly fruits you can add to your low-carb Sangria recipe. The best keto fruits to flavor this keto sangria recipe are:

  • Raspberries
  • Boysenberries
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Lime
  • Lemon

I highly recommend using frozen fruits. They cool down the drink and release their flavor gradually.

How can I serve keto Sangria?

Sangria is often served in a red wine glass with a slice of lime or lemon on the side.

Some people like to add club soda in their Sangria, which doesn’t affect your carb count, but it’s not how a regular Sangria is served in the Iberian Peninsula!

In Spain and Portugal, Sangria is a nonbubbly drink, served over ice to refresh on hot summer days.

So, place ice cubes in a wine glass, serve 1/2 cup of the red Sangria, and scoop in some of the fresh fruits from the pitcher.

How much Sangria can I drink?

Alcohol should be consumed in moderation. Even if this keto sangria is lower in carbs than other Sangria recipes, it has the same effect on health as any alcohol-based drink. It will make your head spin if you overdrink it.

As a general rule, one serving of keto Sangria is 1/2 cup max and contains 3.3 grams of net carbs.
