White Peach Sangria

Sangria on the left, Infused water on the right
For 4th of July, my boyfriend and I hosted a small family barbeque before fireworks. It was a last minute thing, so unfortunately, I didn't do much cooking. But to make up for the lack of homemade barbeque favorites, we did make this awesome Sangria.
The boyfriend is usually the bartender, so for this I served as sous chef/official taste tester, which was a role I gladly accepted. We saw this on Food Network early one Sunday morning, and since then we were dying for a chance to make it. Our recipe is a little less complex than his, but equally just as delicious.

I would highly recommend it for any summer party as it is refreshing and just the right amount of sweet that one looks for in a summer cocktail.

Note: this recipe is for a 1 gallon beverage dispenser. If you want to make only a pitcher, cut the recipe in half.

White Peach Sangria

2 large bottles of white wine (pinot grigio, riesling, sauvignon blanc)
1/2 bottle of Peach Schnapps
1/3 bottle of light rum
1/4 to 1/2 cup of sugar (depending on how sweet you want it)
2 cups orange juice
2 cups pineapple juice
1 bottle club soda
zest of one lemon
2 sliced peaches
2 sliced apples
1 orange

  1. Pour wine, Schnapps, rum and juices in the pitcher.
  2. Add sliced peaches, apples, orange and lemon zest.
  3. Add club soda.
  4. Add sugar and stir gently.
  5. Chill mixture for 4-6 hours before serving.
