Sparkling White Peach Sangria

We are back from our Sonoma/Napa trip… which means back to this crazy desert heat! I am working on getting some trip recaps (and a race recap!) written up, but in the mean time here are a few of my favorite instagram shots from the weekend:

Since I had my fill of wine this weekend, I wanted to share this lovely sparkling white peach sangria that you can easily make at home.

Its really summery and refreshing (it has Saturday afternoon pool-time written all over it!). The recipe makes a big pitcher (about 10-12 glasses) so its great for sharing (or not! Winking smile). Plus it can be prepped ahead so it’s ready when your guests arrive.

Peaches have always been one of my favorite fruits (I think they are second fav to blueberries!). This drink has a nice peachy flavor, so naturally I loved it!

Keeping with the peachy theme I like to use a sparking peach flavored wine, like this one or something similar. It has a nice subtle peach flavor and works well with the Riesling while adding some bubbles to the sangria. If you can’t find it, you can use any champagne or sparking wine instead.

And depending on the sweetness of your peaches you may want to add a tablespoon or two of sugar, it’s up to you. Sometimes I have found that adding in a spoonful of sugar to the fruit for sangria helps to draw out the flavors of the fruit.
