As spring arrives, I thought to myself, "Self, it's time to add some refreshing beverages to the readers' arsenals". To start off, I'm sharing a super-easy recipe for Sparkling Peach Sangria because people are still talking about the batch I made last summer for an all ladies pool party I hosted at my house. So, here it is, ladies! (and Gents...)
You'll need the following ingredients to make 4 drinks, however you can feel free to add other types of fruit as well.
2 Firm Ripe White Peaches
1 bunch of Green Grapes
2 Granny Smith Apples
1/2 cup Peach Schnapps
1/3 cup Superfine Sugar
3 cups chilled Rose' or White Zinfandel wine
2 cups Sparkling Water or Lemon-Lime Soda (such as 7-Up)
1 cup pineapple juice
Cut up peaches and apples into bite-sized chunks, add all fruit and sugar to the peach schnapps, mix and cover for at least a couple of hours, but ideally overnight. When ready to serve, put schnapps mixture in pitcher or serving vessel and add wine, pineapple juice, and sparkling water or soda. Mix well.
Serve over ice! YUM!
