Peach Sangria

Ginger, basil & mint give this peach sangria recipe a delicious herbal kick. Cold & refreshing, it's just the thing for hot summer days.

Peach Sangria

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

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!

  1. Having a very heavy hand, I chuckled when I read your note about toning down the alcohol. We have never thought to add basil to a cocktail but I borrowed your idea, and it was delicious. Just though I would stop by to share. Have a great week.

  2. What a lovely white sangria! I’m loving the picture with the wooden spoon sloshing around all the goodness! Mmmmmm, I would use a big swig of that!
    🙂 Pinned!
