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!

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.

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