I found some of the largest peaches I’ve encountered in quite some time at Whole Foods this past week, so of course, had to immediately chop up one of them to make peach sangria. This is the sangria I’ve been waiting for all summer long – simple, quick and easy to make, and very, very easy to drink, especially after work on a Friday.
I made this with peach brandy, largely because I couldn’t find peach schnapps. Unlike many peach flavored things, the brandy had a nice, authentic peach taste which complimented the white wine. I can imagine that this would also be great served with tapas. It’s equally good for a lazy late summer weekend spent lounging around reading a book.
¼ cup peach brandy or peach schnapps
1 large peach (or 2 small ones)
1 bottle fruity white wine (Pinot Grigio or Gewurztraminer or Riesling)
Slice the peach into wedges. Slice the lemon into thin rounds. Add all ingredients to a pitcher or carafe and stir. Refrigerate for at least two hours to let all the flavors meld.
