This is one of my favorites; people always love it. I used a Nobilo sauv blanc the first time I made it (I already had it on hand)...it's citrusy and just a little bit peppery on its own, but with the other ingredients it just takes the peaches to a new level. I omitted the extra sugar and reduced the amount of lemonade concentrate to 3 or 4 Tbsp, to suit my taste for sweetness and tartness. I found peach nectar in the "international" section of the grocery in a soda-like can made by Jumex (from Mexico.) It's great for a summer picnic, but I keep the ingredients on hand just so I can make this whenever. If you find good frozen peaches, the whole thing takes 2 minutes to prep (do chill it overnight though; you've got to let the fruit soak to bring out the flavors.) Absolute A+
I have used both Pinot Noir & Savignon Blanc with similar results, both very good. I use Peach Schnapps & the entire can of peach nectar omitting the lemonade concentrate and sugar. I also use frozen peaches. Making a day ahead is essential. Cheers!🍑🍸
This is the greatest! I'm making it for every summer gathering from now on. I made a double recipe for dinner for 16 adults and it was gone in about 30 minutes. Notes: 1) a double recipe fits perfectly in a gallon pitcher; 2) I had neither vodka nor peach nectar, but I did have peach schnapps which I substituted to great effect; 3) I'm not sure what the fresh fruit adds to the recipe beside cost, so I'm likely to skip it in the future. All that cutting is time-consuming! It's possible that bagged-frozen-fruit-as-ice-cubes might work nicely. 4) I used Yellow Tail rose. Make this - your guests will love it!
I couldn't find a rose (imagine), so did use white zin. It was good, but I wouldn't say it was great. Also could not find peach nectar so used the peach-flavored vodka. Had about 15 guests, made a double batch as everyone else recommended, and they drained it before the party ended, so they must have liked it more than I did. Several who do not usually have a drink tried it, and liked it, too. Served this on a hot summer day, which may have helped.
