Berry Peach Sangria is full of summery fruit and made with white wine to make it a refreshingly perfect adult beverage for warm weather with no added sugar
I have some white wine sangria for my third day of drinks to celebrate my 5th Anniversary of Turning 21 Week.
Berry Peach Sangria to be exact.
It's full of summery fruit, and the white wine makes it refreshingly perfect for a hot afternoon/evening.
I love sangria for a few reasons: It's more fun than regular wine; I love the drunk fruit; and it is great for entertaining.
You can stretch one bottle of wine to make 6-8 glasses instead of 4. #frugalentertaining
Sangria is also great for entertaining because it's a recipe you can make in advance, and this recipe easily doubles to serve more.
Just make sure you have a really large pitcher.
While most sangria recipes call for added sugar, I skipped that and just added extra fruit and some orange liquor for a little extra flavor. I feel like added sugar mixed with alcohol is a recipe for a hangover.
Also make sure you use a wine that you like.
Don't use a crappy $3 bottle.
Since you only need one, you can splurge on the $8 bottle 🙂 ha but in all seriousness, you want a wine that you would drink without any add-ins.
White wine sangria with berries
I typically use Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio for my white wine sangria.
According to these White Wine Basics from Wine Enthusiast Magazine, Sauvignon Blanc has peach and citrus flavors, which I thought worked perfectly nice in my Berry Peach Sangria.
Just so you know, this sangria is awesome.
My intern Therese and I drank this yesterday afternoon while we worked, and it is G-O-O-D goooooooooood.
And it only had time to sit for about 2 hours, so it doesn't need to be made too far in advance like most sangria needs.
Oh and the drunk peaches, strawberries, and blackberries are absolutely amazing!
Highly recommend this stuff!
