Chile Beer Sangria

Chile Beer Sangria is a punch of spice and citrus in every sip! The chile-infused whiskey and juicy fruit slices only enhance all the flavors in the beer, making it the perfect sangria for everyone. Plus, you won’t even have to use all of the six-pack you buy, so bonus beers for later!

Chile Beer Sangria

Yield: Serves 4 to 6

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Chile-infused whiskey and citrus bring out so many flavors in the beer! Even the men are gonna wanna get all up in this one ladies 😉


Chile-Infused Whiskey

  • Handful of halved fresh chiles (I used a combo of Serrano and Fresno)
  • 1 1/4 cup whiskey


  • Chile-infused whiskey
  • 1 large grapefruit, sliced
  • 1 naval orange, sliced
  • 1 large lime, sliced
  • 36 oz beer, chilled (I used Session - it's the perfect accompaniment for all the flavors in this!)


  1. In an airtight container, combine whiskey and chiles.
  2. Seal and let rest for 24 hours. You can do longer if you want to! Just know it’ll be SPICY AF.
  3. In a pitcher, combine chile-infused whiskey, grapefruit, orange, and lime.
  4. Chill for at least 2 to 3 hours.
  5. When ready to serve, top sangria base with beer. Stir to combine and serve.
