Peacherry Tropical White Sangria

Tropical White Wine Sangria

When I heard the girls were coming over for dinner, I didn’t think long about what beverage to have on hand. But I did make it up on the spot at the grocery store. I picked up a bottle of Reisling, peaches, cherries (both seasonal summer fruits), apples, and oranges and I was ready to go! The cherry juice made it look pink after soaking up all the fruit flavors overnight. It was somewhat sweet and definitely a refreshing summer sipper! Previously, I’ve made White Peach Berry Sangria and red Simple Summer Sangria! Here’s how this version works:

Ingredients

  • Bunch of ripe cherries
  • 2 ripe peaches
  • Two Honeycrisp apples (my favorite, sweet and crunchy!)
  • One orange
  • One bottle of your favorite white wine
  • 1/2 cup of sugar (for simple syrup)
  • 1 cup of water (for simple syrup)

Instructions

  1. Pour 1 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar into a small saucepan on the stove until boiling.
  2. Remove from heat and let stand.
  3. Dice or slice peaches, apples, and oranges to your liking. Cut cherries in halves or quarters. Watch out for the pits! (Advice: cut around them)
  4. Add fruit to a pitcher.
  5. Pour in wine.
  6. Pour in half to the full cup of simple syrup. (Recommend adding half, then if it needs more, sweeten it up more or use the other half for a second batch).
  7. Let stand in refrigerator overnight for more flavor.
  8. When it’s time for your gathering, pour into glasses, and dress the glass with an orange or peach slice.
  9. Sip and enjoy!

    THANK YOU! I have been wondering what to make for my little birthday ‘bring your own ice cream topping’ celebration, and I think a sangria might be a nice pairing? Of course, I’ll probably add something a bit fizzy to help balance out the dairy. 🙂

    Hi Sarah! Long time no blog talk! So glad this inspired you! Sounds like a delicious pairing for the ice cream topping bday shindig! And, you can use some of the extra fruit as toppings for the ice cream. Miss you!

    How refreshing this sounds! I think I’ll whip up a pitcher for the porch this weekend. Thanks!
