I don’t know about you guys, but a pitcher of sangria is a staple for me and my friends on a hot summer day. I’ve discovered this easy keto sparkling wine sangria recipe which is just as good as a regular sangria, without the extra carbs from sugar to help me maintain my keto diet. Best of all, I almost always have these ingredients in my pantry, so I can whip up a batch in no time at all. Convenient!
How to Make Keto Sparkling Wine Sangria
I like using sparkling red wine when making sangria, but you can substitute this with white wine if you’re really fixed on white wine. Dry Farm Wines make some excellent health focused wines, so definitely check them out if you’re looking for good quality wine that supports a healthy lifestyle.
You can also use different kinds of fruits depending on your mood, and the seasonality of the fruit. Here are some other recipes that you can check out that I personally love as well:

To make your sangria, simply combine your brandy, liquid stevia and orange extract in a large pitcher. Gently add in your fruits such as strawberries, lime and orange then mix well together. Cover this mixture with plastic wrap then refrigerate for at least one hour. Top with sparkling wine and serve with ice.
Is Sangria Healthier Than Regular Wine?
With just a few tweaks, sangria can be healthier than red wine. Using fresh fruit makes a huge difference instead of sugar-based syrup. Fruits add potassium, fiber and vitamin A, so make sure to munch on those fruit chunks too.
Do note that while an occasional glass of sangria (or any alcoholic beverage) won’t drastically impact your health, it is still best to keep alcohol consumption at the recommended dose of 15 grams for women and 30 grams for men. (1)
How Long Will the Sparkling Wine Stay Carbonated if Stored in the Refrigerator?
An opened bottle of sparkling wine can still keep for 3-5 days in the refrigerator, but make sure to re-cork it properly. If the cork is no longer available, you can cover the bottle or pitcher with plastic wrap and seal with a tight band. It should be easy to tell if sparkling wine has gone bad as it usually turns brown and develops a foul smell.
If you find that you always have leftovers, you can split the overall recipe serving size in half.
