Peachy White Sangria Recipe
Summertime is the perfect time for light drinks. Many cultures switch from dark colored drinks in the winter to light colored drinks in the summer. Spain is no exception. While red sangria is often the rule of the day for wintertime drinking, summertime needs something fresher and easier to drink. White wine sangria is perfect!
Peaches are also great for any light summer drink, because they have a fresh, cleansing flavor to them.
For the wine, this traditionally would be made with a Spanish white wine. French styles also tend to go well. The plan is for a dry white, not a buttery Chardonnay.
1 750ml bottle white wine
2 peaches, cut up
1/4 cup Triple Sec
Pour the bottle of white wine into a large pitcher or bowl. Cut up the peaches, removing the pits of course, and add them into the pitcher. Now pour in the Triple Sec. If you don't have Triple Sec, any other orange-flavored liqueur like Grand Marnier will do nicely. Mix them all together thoroughly. Let it sit overnight so the peaches soak up the wine flavors and visa versa.
In the morning, add in more ice and if you have them a few fresh peach pieces. Serve and enjoy your white wine sangria!
To turn this into a single-glass recipe, a typical assumption is that one 750ml bottle of wine yields four large glasses of wine. Divide all ingredients shown by four. I'm not sure if I would bother with all this work for just one glass, though - it's probably best to make the full batch and just savor it over a few days!

Note: I created these sangria recipes and have had them online for years. If you find similar sangria recipes elsewhere, it's because someone copied my idea. I do appreciate it when visitors write in to warn me about the plagiarism - but usually there's not much I can do about it! What's really funny is when they copy my design right down to my sangria pitcher. That's a bit much :)
