Using white wine instead of red, this peach and blueberry sangria is a refreshing new twist on an old summer favorite.
I’m taking a short blogging break to soak up time with my sweet newborn baby. Things won’t be silent around here, though; I’ve got some awesome bloggers lined up to step in and share some great content. Today, Anne from Simple and Savory is here with a refreshing summer drink recipe.
Hello, it’s Anne from Simple and Savory helping out Abby while she is getting ready for the arrival of her baby. Today I’m sharing my favorite refreshing summer cocktail ~ homemade peach and blueberry sangria. It’s filled with fresh fruit and it’s easy to sip on a hot summer day.
And now for the sangria. . .
Ice cold sparkling peach and blueberry sangria is a perfect summer cocktail. Traditional sangria is made with red wine, but when the weather heats up, I like a lighter version. White wine is the perfect choice for a light sangria and the fresh, local fruit adds a hint of sweetness.
Homemade sangria is easy to make and is much better for you than the pre-made sangrias that have way too much added sugar. All you have to do is place the fruit into a pitcher, add the wine, a shot of brandy and a little bit of honey and let it chill for an hour or two.
This is such cool and refreshing drink for a hot summer day. Be sure to make the sangria ahead of time to allow the flavors to blend together. Enjoy!
