White Peach Sangria
This recipe originally started out from Food Network's Bobby Flay. After the first pitcher disappeared, in no time flat, I began to adapt (and perfect) this refreshing summer drink that left my guests not only asking for more, but for the recipe. I increased the amount of triple sec and peach schnapps, since I would add in club soda-- to give a refreshing effervescent fizz to the drink. You can easily adapt this recipe to suit your personal preferences by using either a white wine (like a Sauvignon Blanc) or even a White Zinfandel works, too.
- 1 bottle white wine (Spanish table wine)
- 1/2 cup peach schnapps or brandy
- 1 cup triple sec
- 1 cup fresh orange juice
- 1 cup pineapple juice
- 2 ounces simple syrup
- 3 ounces white peach puree or 6 ounces peach nectar can be used
- Fresh peaches, oranges pineapple and cherries
- Club Soda

Place all ingredients in a pitcher and stir to mix.
Refrigerate at least 8 hours or up to 48 hours.
To serve you can add club soda to the entire pitcher, so give the sangria a "fizz". I prefer to pour about 1/3 club soda in a glass filled with plenty of ice, and then pour the sangria. Serve with a slice of fresh orange, for color.
Very refreshing. I recommend keeping extra wine on hand, as my guests wanted more...and more. Chilling this for at least 8 hours is good, but making it at the last minute works fine... color and fruity flavor won't be as rich, if the drink isn't chilled quite long enough.
