White Peach Sangria Recipe

Summer has arrived, and it looks like it’s going to be a hot one! There’s nothing better than sitting by the pool with a cold drink in hand on a hot summer day. Like any good farmers, we like to incorporate our HMC Farms fruit into all kinds of food and beverages. Here’s one of our summer favorites: sparkling white peach sangria.

This is an adult beverage, but a modified version could be made with sparkling water instead of the alcoholic beverages in our recipe.

What you’ll need:

  • 3 or more HMC Farms white peaches (more fruit = more flavor!)
  • 2 small clamshells of raspberries (or about 2 cups)
  • 1 bottle of white wine (we used pinot grigio, but sauvignon blanc would also work)
  • 1 bottle of Prosecco or Champagne
  • 1 cup of peach schnapps

It’s best to start the process the day before serving, but if that ship has sailed, you can start a few hours before you plan to serve the sangria.

Begin by chopping the HMC Farms white peaches into small to medium sized chunks. Put the chopped peaches and raspberries into a pitcher, and add the white wine and peach schnapps – let this mixture sit overnight (or at least for a few hours). Add the Prosecco just before serving, and enjoy!

 

 

Please enjoy alcoholic beverages responsibly.
