REFRESHING WHITE PEACH SANGRIA!
If I am being honest, peach is not my favorite flavor or is it my first choice in picking out fruit. It’s just okay to me. But not this White Peach Sangria.
My sister first passed along this recipe inspiration to me long before this blog was ever started. I was planning a bridal event for a friend of mine who loves peaches so she thought this would be a good addition to the party.
She was right! Not only did my friend love this white peach sangria recipe but so did I and the rest of the guests!
It is sweet, refreshing and flavorful without the peach being overpowering. Total win for a summer sangria recipe!
Pitchers of sangria are honestly my favorite summer cocktail choice, which is why you will find a lot of recipes here on the site. They are easy to make and easy to customize with lots of different flavors!
Plus, sangria pitchers feel a lot more special to offer to guests than a canned or bottled beverage. I mean, who can say no to a drink filled full with pretty fruit?!
HOW DO YOU MAKE WHITE PEACH SANGRIA?
Sangria is a wine based cocktail where the basic ingredients are wine, a sweetener of some sort, a liqueur, a soda or non-alcoholic mixer, and fruit. Lots of fruit!
To make this White Peach Sangria, there is a white wine base in the form of Pinot Grigio, a little bit of sugar, peach vodka for the liqueur, lemon-lime soda for the mixer and white peaches and grapes as the fruit.
You add everything to the pitcher (except for the lemon-lime soda), stir well and chill. Super easy! When you are ready to serve, add chilled lemon-lime soda to the pitcher and enjoy.
CAN I REDUCE THE SUGAR OR SWEETNESS OF THIS SANGRIA RECIPE?
I am not a fan of overly sweet cocktails recipes, so I wouldn’t classify this one as such. However, everyone’s tastes are different.
So if you would like to reduce the sugar content of this recipe or like your cocktails a bit drier, there are two things you can try.
First, you can skip the sugar or reduce the sugar. It’s easy to make the recipe without the sugar to taste test first and see how you like it.
Second, you can try an even drier wine to replace the Pinot Grigio like an unoaked Chardonnay or a Sauvignon Blanc.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A YELLOW PEACH AND A WHITE PEACH?
Let’s start with the outside. A yellow peach has a deep yellow with a red or pink blush on the skin while a white peach is paler in color and mostly pink.
Inside, yellow peaches are the bright yellow color peaches are known for and have a slightly tart flavor. White peaches are exactly that inside – white. They are also sweeter and lower in acidity.
I love using yellow peaches for baking, so you’ll find them most often in my peach recipes, such as:
I love using white peaches in drink recipes, like this white peach sangria recipe, because they don’t get as mushy in the liquid. They are firmer on the inside and therefore maintain some firmness after soaking in the sangria.
There are a couple recipes and occasions where I find them interchangeable. The first is my Peach Prosciutto Goat Cheese Crostini. The second is when grilling, and the third is on flatbread pizzas.
