This white peach sangria is the perfect summer cocktail recipe combining refreshing white wine with fresh peaches, nectarines and lime juice!
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 on Saturday. Nothing beats 101° temperatures better than a light, refreshing glass of White Peach Sangria!
This recipe was originally posted on the blog in 2012 and shortly thereafter I created this video on how to make the delicious White Peach Sangria. I’ve since slightly updated the recipe with homemade peach nectar, as I found it very difficult to find peach nectar in grocery stores!

Ingredients (makes 2 liters)
- 3 nectarines
- 5 peaches (divided)
- 1 lime (sliced thin)
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 2 (750 ml) bottles chenin blanc (chilled)
- ½ cup apricot brandy
- ¼ cup triple sec
Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add the nectarines and 3 peaches. Boil for 2-3 minutes or until the skins begin to peel off easily.
Remove from the boiling water and place immediately in an ice bath.
Once cool enough to touch, remove from the ice bath and remove the skins of the nectarines and peaches. Slice each and remove the seeds. Place in a blender or food processor with 1 cup of cold water and puree.
Place the sliced lime and sugar in a large pitcher or punch bowl.
Muddle the sugar with the limes.
Add the chenin blanc, brandy, triple sec and peach/nectarine puree to the pitcher.
Dice the remaining 2 peaches and add to the pitcher.
Place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, or until ready to serve.
I also chose to freeze watermelon balls to serve with the Sangria instead of using ice cubes.
This is a great trick for any drink in the summer and so easy to make!
Melon Ballers are sold on Amazon for about $9 or you can pick them up at Target, Walmart or a specialty store such as Williams Sonoma or Sur La Table.
Place the watermelon balls in the freezer and you’ve got a flavorful way to keep your drinks cold all summer long without watering them down!
Cheers to sangria sipping on warm summer days!
