Food and the City: White Peach & Grape Sangria

White Peach & Grape Sangria


I have an idea. Lets make sangria today. Lets sit outside, soak up the sun, and sip something fruity. Sound like a plan?

Good.

Its Cinco De Mayo weekend folks. Do I really need to tell you why we're making sangria today? Duh... its Cinco De Mayo weekend. I'm not so much a margarita gal, mainly because tequila makes me quote really bad movie lines and do cartwheels on concrete (definitely not talking from experience), so I tend to always be that person that will bring sangria.

The folks over at Thorny Wines were gracious enough to provide their pinot grigio for todays post, so thats what we will be using this afternoon! This pinot grigio is light, crisp, and a perfect option to make sangria with.



I have a thing for peach sangria. It is sooooo refreshing and much more fun to sip on then traditional red sangria. Its like, summer in a glass people. Summer in a glass.


I'm thinking you should definitely make a pitcher of white peach sangria this weekend.


White Peach & Grape Sangria 

5 small peaches, sliced
1 bundle of red grapes
1 lemon, sliced
1/4 cup sugar
Ice

If you want to use immediately, be sure to chill your wine for a few hours in the refrigerator. 

Wash + slice your lemon and peaches. To the bottom of a glass pitcher, add your grapes. Muddle them down a bit using a muddler or a large wooden spoon. Add your peach slices, wine, sugar, and lemon slices. Stir to combined. Top with ice and chill the fridge for a few hours before serving.
