White Peaches in Sangria

Imagine some juicy summer peaches chilling in a glass of fruity sangria. It's a great way to kick off a meal, satisfy your sweet tooth, or just enjoy a fun cocktail.

Years ago, I met a charming elderly woman who was Italian American. She took great pride in her Italian roots and shared delightful stories about her mother and grandmother's culinary skills and recipes.


One of these recipes featured fresh, sweet summer peaches. Her mother had a preference for white peaches, believing them to be sweeter than their darker counterparts and ideal for creating delectable desserts. Among her recipes was one that combined juicy white peaches with homemade sangria. Her mother would layer thinly sliced white peaches in a pitcher and then pour sangria over them. After chilling in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes, she would serve the peach-infused sangria in elegant wide-mouthed glasses to guests, providing spoons for them to enjoy the marinated peach slices.

Naturally, I had to recreate this recipe on a scorching summer day. It was absolutely delicious. I've since made this special cocktail a tradition, preparing it every peach season for a refreshing treat on hot summer days. It's the perfect sip and starter combination to enjoy on the porch with friends and family.
