Sangria on Sunday in Seattle

Last weekend my friend Charisse sent me a note that she had just prepared and enjoyed some delicious sangria. When I heard that she had put her own recipe together I asked if she had snapped a photo so we could share it here. Sadly that weekend she didn’t.

But lucky for us she decided again this past weekend to prepare some sangria and this time around she did snap a photo and even wrote down her recipe. Enjoy Charisse’s Strawberry- Peach Sangria.

INGREDIENTS

1/2 peach, sliced into wedges
10 strawberries, hulled and quartered
1 bottle of dry red wine (I used a fruit forward Pinot Noir)
1/2 cup peach liqueur
1/2 cup dark rum
2 tablespoons sugar, optional
Sparkling water and lemon wedges, for serving

PREPARATION

Combine the peaches, strawberries, red wine, peach liqueur, and rum in
a large pitcher. Add the sugar if using and stir well. Refrigerate for
6-8 hours or overnight.
To serve, fill a goblet style wine glass with ice. Pour the sangria
until the glass is 3/4 full. Top with sparkling water. Squeeze a lemon
wedge over the top. Stir gently to combine and enjoy immediately.
Serves 6.
