I’ve always been one to be pretty willing to try new things, and even come up with what my husband says are “concoctions” for recipes. Most of the time they turn out pretty good, with maybe a bit of tweaking, but not always. Summer drinks can be a refreshing item to add to any menu, or just to enjoy as these days are getting hotter here in the South. This White Peach Sangria with Raspberries and Nectarines combines so many of my favorite summer time flavors.
Walking through Trader Joe’s I spied a carton of nectarines which were just at a nice ripeness stage, then white peaches – thinking to myself, OK – I’m here to buy wine so why not try my hand at Sangria. I’ve never made it except for a non-alcoholic version a few years ago. Oh, and let’s throw in some raspberries for flavor too.
After a day of shopping in Atlanta and the AC in my car not working just right, this would make a nice treat for us when we got home. Now to figure out how to make it. I think my nieces from Arkansas enjoyed being the guinea pigs on this.
We looked up several different recipes to see what else was needed and there are as many recipes for this as there is a chocolate cake.
Since this being done on a whim, I had to use what I had, or close by. This is my favorite wine and always a must when shopping at Trader Joe’s. Luckily a trip to the liquor store to pick up peach brandy was only a five minute drive.
