Now this is my thing – a twist on the normal Sangria Recipe. You need to try Peach White Wine Sangria.
I know ahead of time when it’s going to be a lazy weekend. Truth be told, it’s almost every weekend. Especially here in hot hot hot Arizona during the hot hot hot summer. Who really wants to go outside anyway? ME! I want to go outside! But I can’t… because it’s 110 degrees outside and going anywhere means that Ry has to stay outside where the pavement is too hot for his wee paws (he has this whole getting-into-trash-and-trouble-when-mom-is-away thing going on). I read somewhere (Pinterest?) that when it’s 80 degrees outside, the pavement is too hot for puppy paws, so that rules out him coming with me anywhere, too. And honestly, the only place I want to be is somewhere sunny and 75 (I LOVE that song!!), not melting away in the summer heat and miserable. For now, staying inside drinking sangria and playing board games sounds so much nicer. Gosh, I need a pool.
So there you have it… Planning for a lazy weekend is really just good sense. I was originally going to call this White Peach Sangria. But it’s not. The peaches aren’t white. They’re yellow! So naturally, I felt that if I named it White Peach Sangria, I’d be living a lie. And I couldn’t do that to you or to myself. Like a 4pm latte, it’s the kind of thing that would keep me up at night. See? Those suckers are clearly yellow.
My favorite things to do for a lazy Sunday are 1) to make a big dinner on Saturday night so that there are leftovers for the next day, and 2) to make a fun drink in advance so that Sunday can be about lounging around, playing Sequence (seriously, so addicted to this game right now), and spending time with my boys (Adrien and Riley).
Sangria is the perfect make-ahead drink, because it benefits from the overnight flavor party that happens in the fridge. Plus it’s an excuse to use a super cute pitcher. I feel so fancy when I make things in pitchers. That’s weird, isn’t it? It just feels so hostess-y.
Weekend happy hour at my house starts at noon. Throughout the day, Adrien and I finished off a pitcher on our own, but this would be perfect for a group brunch because you can just set it somewhere and let people help themselves instead of making drinks one-by-one. Just set out the soda water and some freshly cut fruit to garnish, and you’re all set!
This requires cutting up 3 pieces of fruit and pouring a few things into a pitcher. It doesn’t get much easier than that. Typically, sangria will use brandy or triple sec, but I really wanted to bump up the peach flavor in this one, so I used Peachtree Schnapps instead. Finally, it’s topped off with soda water both to add some fizz and to cut the sweetness.
