I am going to preface this post by saying that I really didn’t take any “glamor shots” of the finished product of this recipe because we loaded it into a cooler, dragged it to a local park for an early 4th of July fireworks celebration, and drank it out of red solo cups. BUT, despite the lack of pretty pictures, please give this recipe a try, especially if you like peaches. I think it was one of my best sangrias yet!
1.5L bottle pinot grigio
4 cups Ocean Spray White Cran-Peach juice
1/4 cup white brandy
1 or 2 sliced peaches
4 cups of Sprite
I think the most important detail about this recipe is that we started it the day prior to when we needed it. It had a good 24 hours for the flavors to meld. I firmly believe that this makes all the difference!
Slice the peaches and place into the pitcher or jug. I estimated two, but one would have been fine. My mother-in-law and I snacked on peach slices while we put the sangria together, so no harm no foul.
Pour the wine into the jug over the peaches, then add the juice and brandy. Stir everything well and refrigerate several hours, or as I suggest, overnight! Patience, people! It’s so important when it comes to crafting fine sangria…
Just before serving, add the Sprite, and enjoy! The flavor is slightly sweet, very peachy, and extremely refreshing on a hot summer day!
