Fruity White Wine Peach Sangria is an easy and delicious summer cocktail made by the pitcherful. (No bartender necessary!)
This refreshing sangria is the perfect no-fuss fruity drink to enjoy poolside with friends and family this summer. Today I’m sharing an easy white wine peach sangria recipe perfect for a holiday weekend!
So we’ve been outside working hard to spruce up the yard for our son Jacob’s high school graduation party in just a few weeks. It always amazes me how much faster the weeds grow than the flowers.
Jon spent a good amount of time wrestling an invasive vine out of a rhododendron bush out front. He seriously filled three or four lawn bags with just the vines. He was also trimming bushes and weed whacking.
I was weeding flower beds and preparing our little patch of earth for the vegetable garden out back.
So by the time we finished all our hard work last Saturday we were in serious need of liquid refreshment. This Fruity White Wine Peach Sangria fit the bill.
If you’re familiar with sangria at all, you know it’s usually red wine, some sweetener and lots of fresh, ripe fruit. So I did a little switcheroo here, and used white wine instead for a more summery cocktail.
While it isn’t the mixed drink I’d serve Queen Elizabeth if she showed up to tea, it’s a great cocktail just the same. It’s a fun fru-fru girly drink, for the record.
Not high end or pricey, but the perfect cocktail to make by the pitcher and serve inexpensively to large groups. This recipe serves many and makes nearly a gallon. It goes a long way and everyone raves about it. (You’ll thank me later.)
A couple notes:
- Use fresh, ripe fruit that macerates well, releasing its sweet juice into the wine. Bad or unripe fruit doesn’t improve, even when soaked in wine.
- And use decent wine. I like to use cheaper or middle of the road wine for sangria. Today I used a bottle of 2014 Kendall-Jackson Pinot Gris and it turned out great.
- Melting ice can dilute, so opt for extra frozen fruit instead to keep your sangria well chilled.
- If you like a really sweet sangria, add simple syrup. Mine was plenty sweet without additional simple syrup.
