Happy Friday! I have the easiest, summeriest cocktail to share with you: peach sangria!
This weekend, it’s going to be 102 degrees(!) here in Austin. Because hot summer days call for cold, refreshing drinks, I decided to come up with a new summer party drink recipe. I figure everyone loves sangria, so I thought – what would be more seasonal than peach sangria? Now one of my favorite sangria recipes, this drink is sweet, but not too sweet, and packed full of fruit and herbs.
Peach Sangria Recipe Ingredients
The base is simple: white wine, Grand Marnier, and fresh peaches. I also added a splash of ginger juice and a handful of mint and basil for an herby kick, but feel free to omit them for a more traditional peach sangria.
While I used yellow peaches, you could swap them for white peaches or add sliced apples, oranges, or strawberries for an extra-fruity twist.
How to Make Peach Sangria
Mix the ingredients in a large pitcher, and let it chill for at least a few hours (or overnight). It gets more peachy and herbaceous the longer it sits. When you’re ready to serve, pour into glasses and serve over ice. Cheers!
