White Peach Basil Sangria

A little more Summer Sangria love for you today with my White Peach Basil Sangria.  I served this at my Sangria Soiree a few weeks ago and it was well loved!  I have made it several more times since including last night at my sister-in-laws for another party.  I used peaches we bought at a local farm stand.  So good!

White Peach Basil Sangria
 
Ingredients
  • 1 c sugar
  • ½ c fresh orange juice, chilled
  • ½ c fresh lemon juice, chilled
  • ½ c fresh grapefruit juice, chilled
  • 1 bottle Savignon Blanc, chilled
  • 1 bottle champagne or prosecco, chilled
  • 2 white peaches, chopped
  • ¼ c fresh basil, sliced thinly
  • **Note: Use fresh squeezed juices. It really tastes much better. Never that pre-made Real Lemon! I buy it at Whole Foods when I'm making a large quantity but it's really not that hard to squeeze this amount for a single batch.
Instructions
  1. Place sugar, orange juice, lemon juice and grapefruit juice in a large pitcher.
  2. Stir until sugar is dissolved.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and stir.
  4. Pour over ice in a high boy or large wine glass.
  5. Enjoy!

Megan_Weaver_02Add fresh squeezed juices to the sugar and stir to dissolve. A great time saver is to purchase these fresh squeezed juices at your local Whole Foods, Central Market or other nicer grocer.  Please do not use pasteurized or other juices – especially Real Lemon juice.  It will taste terrible!

I use wines and proseccos that I would serve on their own.  It’s not worth making an bad tasting batch of Sangria. Peaches are so good here this time of the summer.  I don’t peel my peaches because I like to color the peel adds to the drink and texture and tartness as well.

We have a small raised garden and the girls love to run out and collect herbs for whatever I’m making.  They have done such a great job on the basil this year!
