One of life’s simple pleasures is sitting around on a nice warm summer evening with a few friends, sipping sangria from a pitcher.
We love playing around with different combinations of fruit and herbs in our potent blends. For this extremely simply crowd-pleaser, we sliced up some peaches and plums and tossed in some sprigs of mint from our brand new garden. Rather than use a traditional Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc, we used a dry Riesling, which added some minerality and a bit of fizz to our sangria.
If you want to recreate our refreshing blend, combine one bottle of white wine, two cups of white grape juice, one sliced peach, one sliced plum and one cup of fresh mint sprigs in a pitcher. Stir until everything looks beautiful and is mingling nicely, then refrigerate until chilled.
Over time, the mint infuses the sangria with a nice, cooling tingle to compliment the sweetness. The result is a sangria perfectly suited for a memory-making, relaxed evening outside. Be careful though—too many glasses and you may make a few memories your friends won’t let you forget this summer.
