Peachy Sangria

Last night I attempted a new recipe for Sangria. Even though I have an actual recipe book completely devoted to Sangria, I did not use that book. No for this recipe I simply used my good ol’ brain and made it up on my own. Naturally I wasn’t sure how it would turn out since I wasn’t following any instructions but I am happy to report that it was delicious!! A lot of people don’t like white wine Sangria so this may not be for everyone- but it is definitely for me!! Natasha and Hayley didn’t seem to mind it either!!

So now I am happy to share my Peachy Sangria recipe with you all.

  • 2 bottles of chilled light white wine (trust me, you’ll need at least 2 bottles – I used a Semillon/Sav. Blanc blend)
  • 1/4- 1/2 cup peach vodka
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup tinned/canned peaches (in juice, not syrup)
  • 1/2 cup of the peach juice from the can
  • 1 pear, peeled and sliced
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 1 kiwi sliced
  • Sprite or other lemon lime soda to top up
  1. Add the fruit, sugar, juice and vodka to a pitcher, stir well
  2. Add the wine and stir
  3. Let the Sangria chill for awhile. I let mine sit in the fridge for an hour
  4. Pour into glasses over ice, top up with sprite
  5. Drink way too quickly and wish you had made more

YUM!

Obviously you can mix up the fruit… but don’t forget the peaches- otherwise it wouldn’t be very peachy would it?? I was really surprised that it turned out so well using vodka. The only reason I used vodka was because I ran out of brandy so I was a bit worried that it might be weird- but the peach vodka definitely added to the flavor!
