Peach Cherry Sangria – the perfect summer sangria! Peaches, cherries, and fresh basil in white wine and brandy. Mix up a big batch of this for all your summer pool parties!
Hey guys, happy Friday! How was your week? Are you also depressed that there was no Bachelorette this week?
Anyway, my mom came in yesterday! Kicked that off by realizing that the Jeep had a flat tire minutes before I needed to leave for the airport to get her. Luckily the boyfriend was here and got it changed for me because otherwise?
I would’ve sat in my driveway and cried.
I haven’t seen my mom in almost a year – crazy, right? I mean, we talk pretty much every day of our lives but still. Of course the boys started begging to go to the lake as soon as she stepped off the plane so we ended up spending a couple hours floating around.
Is everyone stupid excited for cherries and peaches? I’ve bought, like, 4 bags of cherries intending to make sangria with them and then we just end up snacking on them. And the peaches have all gone into pie.
So good. I just love summer fruits.
This Peach Cherry Sangria is the perfect summer sangria because it uses both peaches and cherries and my other current obsession, fresh basil. Use whatever inexpensive white wine you like. You chill the cherries in the wine overnight so it turns red and delicious.
It’s super simple – just soak the cherries overnight in the wine and a tiny bit of brandy and then before you head to your barbecue or pool party or whatever, just drop in the sliced peaches and basil. Top with a little sparkling water and it’s all done.
- 1/4 cup simple syrup
