Sparkling White Peach Sangria is a great brunch or summer cocktail! Making it ahead makes it a great recipe for a party and the taste is fantastic!
I made this sangria the other day with Easter in mind. I love when spring hits and we start looking at colorful bright things. We’ve been having a really dark and rainy winter this year in Portland so I think I’m even more ready than normal for spring and everything that comes with it, except for the showers, I’ve had enough of those. 🙂 Peaches really aren’t in season yet but I was able to make this sangria using really good quality frozen peaches. It really worked well. I also used frozen raspberries to save on the cost of buying them in the offseason. I love all the fresh berries we have here in Oregon in the summer and can’t wait to get outside and pick them again this year. If you don’t use up all your frozen peaches and raspberries in this sangria, or just just get a smokin’ deal on them, whip up this amazing Raspberry Peach Wine Slushie recipe. You can thank me later.

So, anyway, I made this sangria and my husband and I went out back to our deck to soak up the sun during a short break in the rain. We were walking down the steps of the deck to our side yard to inspect and plan the yard for the summer. I was holding my glass of Sparkling White Peach Sangria, took my first step onto the first step and whoosh! I went flying up into the air and came down on my back on the stairs. I was fine, some bruises and maybe a broken pinky. How on earth did I break my pinky falling on the stairs? I used it to cushion the impact of my glass of sangria! It was too good to waste! So you know you have got to try this drink if I’m willing to sacrifice my pinky finger to save it!
We have made quite a few sangrias in the past and one of my favorites has always been White Peach Sangria. I wanted to try to make something as great but that I could serve at brunch. I think it’s pretty fantastic that all you have to do is add champagne to a drink and it’s totally acceptable to have it with breakfast!!! Sangrias are the greatest party drink in my opinion! Everyone loves the taste and you can make a big pitcher the day before a party and you’re good to go! This Easter you’ve got to make Sparkling White Peach Sangria and relax with your family or even this summer on those warm, lazy weekend mornings!
