White Wine and Peach Sangria

We spent the evening with some great friends...who happen to be our neigbors--and met some new friends too! We were invited over for dinner, brought the kids and everything! I was told not to bring anything, but instead I took White Wine and Peach Sangria...a yummy recipe from my sweet friend Christine. She shared a glass and the recipe with me and I loved it! I doubled this and took it over last night--there were 5 ladies and we each enjoyed a glass...or two! I'd never had white wine sangria before...and I'm all about something different. It was a perfect drink for this Hot Texas Summer!

White Wine and Peach Sangria

1 (750 ml) bottle white wine (I used Pinot Grigio)
3/4 cup peach brandy (I used 3/4 cup of peach schnapps instead of the brandy and sugar)
6T frozen lemonade concentrate
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 bag frozen peaches (I used this and sliced up a large fresh peach)
red and green grapes, sliced (I used red grapes and sliced a Granny Smith apple to throw in)

Mix liquids first, then add fruit. Ideally, let it sit 2 hours. We couldn't wait that long!! (If you use the brandy and sugar, make sure sugar is dissolved in liquid completely before adding fruit.) I packed the fruit in there, add what you like, depending on your taste. You could throw anything in there--we discussed adding cherries and raspberries last night! I don't really think you can go wrong.

  1. In regards to the comment on my blog about the baked corndogs...I thought that actual cornbread recipe was dry (but then again, I'm picky about cornbread!). Use your favorite recipe for cornbread and add the cheese and hotdogs to it. I personally like to use a box of Jiffy :-)
