Summer Cocktail - Peach Sangria

A few weeks back my husband, myself, my brother in laws, future sister in law and friends went out on our boat for a relaxing Saturday out on the water. The sun was shining, the weather was hot and we cooled off with some dips in the ocean but also with some ice cold beers and a nice batch of peach sangria.

I made the concoction the night before to get the fruit juices simmering. I personally tripled the recipe (yes I know that is a little much) but it was the perfect amount for the 7 guests we had with us on a boat for 8 hours.

A lot of people have asked for the recipe and although I am a few weeks late sharing it, here it is!


Peach Sangria



Ingredients
  • 2 ripe peaches cut into wedges
  • 4 peaches diced, peeled and puree
  • 1 pint strawberries, cut into quarters
  • ½ cup peach schnapps
  • 2 bottles white wine
  • 1 cup granulated sugar






We used Barefoot Sauvignon Blanc for the white wine. It has just the right amount of sweet. Plus the double bottle was only $11.99.


We cut up all the peaches and added strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, lime and orange to the mix.

The fruit all cut up before we added the alcohol and pureed peaches


Letting it all soak in!


Directions
1 Combine the peaches, strawberries and any other fruit you choose to add into the container or pitcher. In a separate pitcher combine the schnapps, wine and sugar in a large pitcher and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Then add the liquid to the fruit. 

2 Let stand 1 hour or overnight.

3 Add some ice &  serve.

CHEERS!


XO,

    1. Thanks Melissa! We will definitely have to brainstorm on what kind of sangria to make for our next boat outing! Mango coconut pineapple perhaps?
