White Peach Sangria

Greg DuPree
Prep time 15 mins
Chill time 2 hrs
Yield

Makes about 8 cups; 10 to 12 drinks

Instead of a traditional red sangria, make a refreshing summer version with white wine and fresh peaches. 

Ingredients

  • 1 bottle (750 ml.) Riesling or other aromatic white wine
  • 2 cups thin wedges firm-ripe white peaches (about 3/4 lb.)
  • 1/2 cup peach schnapps
  • 1 cup loosely packed mint sprigs
  • 1 bottle (750 ml.) chilled brut-style sparkling wine

How to Make It

  1. In a large pitcher or small punch bowl, combine Riesling, peaches, peach schnapps, and mint sprigs. Cover and chill until cold, at least 2 hours.

  2. Pour in sparkling wine, stir gently, and serve immediately in chilled white-wine glasses.

  3. Bar snack: Marcona or other toasted almonds.
