Our white peach tree produced about a million peaches this year, more than we know what to do with. So I have been giving them away, eating them, and trying to figure out what else to do with them. I found a recipe for sangria that is yummy and that I thought I’d share with you. If you are a fan of white wine, you will love this recipe!
Peach and Orange Sangria
This is so simple to make. In a pitcher, combine mint leaves (I picked it from the garden, rinsed it off, and tore it into pieces) with a splash of peach schnapps (or peach vodka) and a tablespoon of sugar. Gently stir and mash the mint using a wooden spoon.
Look at all of that yummy fruit!
Next, slice some peaches (right from the tree!) into thin slices. Add to the pitcher. Thinly slice one orange, and add that as well.
Add a bottle of chilled white wine (try Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigot) and stir it all together. Cover and chill. The longer it sits, the yummier it is! Pour it into a Red Solo Cup White Trash Wine Glass and enjoy!
A little warning if you have never had sangria before you might not know this, but the fruit seeps up all the alcohol from the wine. You will want to and then love eating the fruit. But beware! Eat too much of it and you’ll be tipsy before you know it!
Do you have a favorite sangria recipe? I’d love to hear about it!
