Ruth was really into dinner parties last week, she hosted three of them. I love a good dinner party but I was unfortunately unable to attend the first two. When the third one came along I quickly volunteered to make a cocktail for the evening since the guests were bring dessert.
There is nothing better than cold, fruity sangria on a hot summer evening. Sangria is just so easy! Cut up your fruit, add it to a pitcher, pour in the wine & booze & juice, refrigerate, and you’re done. This takes about five minutes.
Plus everyone likes sangria, EVERYONE! I have yet to meet someone how does not enjoy a lovely, refreshing glass of sangria, especially a white wine based sangria. The fruit and juice mellow the wine so things are less acidic and alcoholic.
This sangria is particularly delightful with the prosecco. I adore sparkling wine of all varieties and it works perfectly with the peach nectar and fruit. You could mix things up to fit your tastes. I think you should make some of this sangria before the summer ends, you’ll be really happy you did so!
