To Summer

Peach Raspberry Sangria

Peach Raspberry Sangria

It’s my favorite season and it’s not quite here in Seattle yet, but still – a toast to change of scenery, change of weather, and much needed summer breaks. This Raspberry Peach Sangria was shot a while back (last summer!) but never uploaded … just a reminder to enjoy the moment. Happy Summer to all!

It’s my Peach Sangria recipe with a few raspberries muddled in to get the lovely color you see here…enjoy!

Sangria!

Sangria!

I used:
2 thinly sliced peaches
6-8 raspberries
1 tablespoon freshly chopped mint
1 bottle dry white wine
4-5 teaspoons sugar (more if the peaches aren’t sweet, or use simple syrup)
2-3 tablespoons Grand Marnier
1/2 cup orange juice
a small pinch of salt

My Method:
1. Toss the Grand Marnier, raspberries, peaches, sugar, salt, and mint in a cup, then let it sit for few minutes till the sugar melts.
2. Transfer it all to a pitcher, add the orange juice, then add the wine, then stir and chill.
3. When ready to serve, fill up your glasses with ice and generously pour, spooning out the peaches as needed.
