Long Island Iced Coffee

Long Island Iced Coffee Recipe

A couple of months ago, I stumbled upon Halcyon, a new hybrid coffee/bar/restaurant in the East Village neighborhood of downtown San Diego.

I was with a group of friends on a Friday night, so we asked for the cocktail list. I was so ridiculously excited when they presented me with an entire menu of coffee cocktails. As a die-hard coffee-loving girl, I couldn’t wait to try one of these cocktail creations!

I was immediately drawn to the “Long Island Iced Coffee” – I was both intrigued and excited about trying this – I figured that it would either be the best thing ever or totally weird – IT WAS THE BEST THING EVER!

For every dinner party I host I spend a good 5-10 minutes, pouring water from my clunky plastic water filter into nice bottles to place on the table. My thought, why not just create a water filter that’s lovely enough to go straight from the refrigerator to the table?

Well the founder of Soma, Mike Del Ponte, and I had the exact same thought. He just did something about it!

White Peach Sangria

White Peach Sangria

After taking just one sip of the most perfect “tastes-like-you-stuck-a-straw-in-a-peach” Sangria at Hugo’s Mexican Restaurant in Houston, I knew I had to attempt a recreation of my own!

I found the perfect opportunity when I hosted a BBQ this Saturday. Nothing beats 101° temperatures better than a light, refreshing glass of Peach Sangria!

Watch this video on how to make the delicious Sangria and get the full recipe below.

White Peach Sangria Ingredients

Ingredients (makes 2 liters)

  • 1 lime (sliced thin)
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1.5 liter bottle chenin blanc
  • 1/2 cup apricot brandy
  • 1/4 cup triple sec
  • 1 cup peach nectar*
  • 3 nectarines (peeled, cored and pureed)
  • 2-3 peaches (peeled and cubed)

* I recommend purchasing at a specialty store such as Whole Foods which sells the nectar as 100% juice. I found traditional grocery stores only carried canned nectar which added sugar and high fructose corn syrup.

Start by slicing the lime and placing in a large pitcher or beverage barrel. Top with the sugar and muddle well.

Next, add the wine, brandy, triple sec and peach nectar.

Then peel, core and puree the nectarines in a food processor.

Add the puree to the sangria and mix well.

Finally, chop the peaches, add to the sangria and the perfect summer cocktail is complete!

White Peach Sangria

I also chose to freeze watermelon balls to serve with the Sangria instead of using ice cubes 🙂

Melon Ballers are sold at Target, Walmart or specialty store such as Williams Sonoma or Sur La Table for around $10.

White Peach Sangria Recipe

I ended up making 3 batches for my BBQ, I’d say it was a hit!

Fresh Fruit Sangria

This recipe comes from my Dad in Oklahoma, he makes the best Sangria ever and I figured it was about time I made it and shared the recipe with all my LLB followers! This drink is perfect for parties or pairing with a delicious Spanish Tapas Dinner!

 

Ingredients
  • 1 orange (thinly sliced)
  • 1 lemon (thinly sliced)
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 large bottle dry red wine  (chilled)
  • 1/2 cup brandy
  • 1/4 cup triple sec
  • 2 tbsp orange juice
  • 1 cup club soda (chilled)
  • ice cubes

In a large bowl muddle the orange and lemon slices with the sugar.

Next, add the red wine, brandy, triple sec and orange juice and mix well.

Transfer to a punch bowl and chill until ready to serve, then add the club soda and ice cubes and top with additional fruit slices.

Serve with ladle for guests to pour into large wine glasses.
