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. The photography is just amazing; makes me want to lean in and grab a glass.

  2. This looks like my kind of sangria! The can usually only drink one of the really sugary ones, but I could drink a lot of this 🙂 I got the peaches, wine, and herbs, I just need to grab some grand mariner!

  3. It’s funny as I haven’t made sangria this summer at all, not even once and now all I want is this sangria!!

  4. Gahhh this weekend is going to be brutal. I’m planning on spending 99% of it in the pool. Maybe with a batch of this sangria — perfection!

  5. This sounds totally refreshing. I love the combination of flavors.

  6. Yes to sangria! I have a ton of watermelon to use, so I’m thinking I’m going to need to make sangria happen!

  7. Now I know what I’m going to do with all those peaches on my table! Peaches, ginger, and grand marnier – what could go wrong??

    Sangria is a MUST in the summer {or really, in my opinion, anytime!}. I love anything with ginger, and pairing it with the sweet summer fruit is absolute perfection 🙂

    This sounds amazing! I love the idea of adding ginger. I’m definitely going to have to add this to my summer “to make” list!

    What a nice twist on the traditional version! The fresh peaches just keep coming in at our farmer’s markets and what a great way to use them. I like the idea of sparkling water too (not that I have anything against a lovely boozy beverage) but I think it would add a nice finish to the glass. Thanks for sharing!!
