I have been on a real sparkling wine kick this summer. I just love how refreshing a little bit of effervescence in my sips is!
Since I’ve been loving sparkling wine, I figured I should continue that trend in my sangria, as well! Sparkling Peach Sangria is perfect for when you want an easy cocktail for a crowd that isn’t too sweet, and is super refreshing.
And when I say this peach sangria is easy, I mean it! It only has FOUR ingredients! First, we have the peaches. Obvs. You want to pick peaches that are perfectly ripe and have a lot of flavor. I used white peaches here, but either white or yellow will do! The white peaches were perfectly ripe at my grocery store and were begging to be made into sangria.
Second, there is orange liqueur. You can use Grand Marnier or Triple Sec – either work. You will soak the peaches in the Grand Marnier for at least 30 minutes, but preferably a few hours. Typically you soak the fruit in both the liqueur and the wine, but in this case, you’ll want to wait until serving to add the sparkling wine to keep it carbonated and fresh.
The last ingredients are the sparkling wine and peach sparkling water. You can use prosecco, sparkling rose, whatever! This recipe is yours for the making. And literally, that’s it.
This Sparkling Peach Sangria is perfectly sweet – there’s nothing in the recipe to add sweetness, so it’s definitely not overly sweet. If you want something sweeter, add a can of Sprite instead of the sparkling water!
Like I said, this recipe is adaptable for everyone’s tastes – though I prefer it exactly as written. Cheers to summer patio season!
