Sangria

I love to have friends over for dinner. I get to plan a fun meal, wear an apron, and sing along to Gene Kelly on pandora while I put everything together. A couple months ago I hosted a fun "house happy hour" and had a few girlfriends over at 4pm on a Friday to have some drinks and apps. It was the tail end of summer and I had a bunch of peaches that I had canned so I decided to whip up a double batch of Sangria! This delicious peach sangria calls for fresh peach slices, fresh raspberries, and peach nectar for its fantastic flavor. Be sure to use rosé wine, not a white. It was definitely a hit, looked gorgeous in the pitcher, and was so easy to make. This is definitely a drink recipe I will make again!


Ingredients

1 (750-milliliter) bottle rosé wine
3/4 cup vodka (I used Wild Roots raspberry vodka - which I highly recommend)
1/2 cup peach nectar
6 tablespoons thawed frozen lemonade concentrate
2 tablespoons sugar
1 pound ripe peaches, peeled and sliced (I used my own canned peaches)
1 (6-oz.) package fresh raspberries (1 cup frozen raspberries may be submitted)
2 cups club soda, chilled

Preparation

1. Combine first 5 ingredients in a pitcher; stir until sugar is dissolved. Stir in peaches and raspberries. Cover and chill 8 hours.
2. Stir in chilled club soda just before serving.
