It's Friday. It's Friday. It's the end of the week and the last day! We made it! Now, it's time to relax + enjoy the weekend. One of my favorite springtime cocktails is Sangria. I mean it's has wine + fruit, so that means it's full of antioxidants making it kind of good for you. At least that's what I tell myself.
I have made a yummy + easy Blood Orange + Peach Sangria that is a little different from a traditional sangria recipe. I mixed three of my favorites: wine, Italian soda, and peaches.
What You'll Need:
1 bottle of white wine (I went with Riesling)
1 cup of blood orange Italian soda
3 ounces of brandy
2 thinly sliced peaches
2 thinly slices apples
2 ounces of simple syrup (optional)
a glass pitcher
In a large pitcher combine white wine , 3 ounces of Brandy, and a cup of blood orange Italian soda. Stir until the three are mixed well. Italian soda does fizz so if you're looking for a traditional tasting sangria using less is a better option. It's all about preference. You can also add simple syrup if you like a sweeter tasting sangria.
Now, add sliced peaches, apples, or any other fruit you'd like.
Refrigerate sangria overnight. Serve over ice.
Now, it's ready! Enjoy.
