A few weeks ago my husband and I attended a fundraising event at a local restaurant. On special that evening were glasses or pitchers of a lovely white wine sangria. Now, I’ve not been a big fan of many of the sangrias that I’ve tried before, so I was skeptical. But friends of ours ordered a pitcher to share so I gave it a try.
Fresh and light and fruity with just a hint of white wine flavour. Not too sweet with a perfect balance of refreshing mint and tangy lime.
So, I decided to give it a try for myself. Now, I had a basic idea of the ingredients, but no idea as to amounts or methods; so I figured I’d just play around with it until I came up with something I loved just as much as the one I’d tried at the restaurant.
And today I’m sharing my own personal recipe for this white wine sangria; I’m calling it white peach sangria smash. Because it’ll be a smash hit at your next event.
I used frozen peaches and blackberries, though I allowed the blackberries to thaw for a while before using. I also used organic lime juice, fresh mint, white wine (Moscato), raspberry vodka, and 7-up. Alternatively, you could substitute a lemon-lime soda water as a topper if you prefer less sweetness.
Start by placing a few blackberries, a peach slice, and a fresh mint leaf or two into each of the glasses. You could muddle these up for a little extra flavour…
Next blend the remaining ingredients, except for the 7-up, to create a wine slushie (see recipe below). Pour it into the glasses…
And top with 7-up!
For 2 drinks
2 ounces of raspberry vodka
6-8 ounces of white wine
3/4 cup of frozen peaches
2 tbsp lime juice
4-6 mint leaves
2/3 can of 7-up or lemon-lime soda for less sweetness
blackberries, peach, lime, or mint to garnish
Blend the vodka, white wine, frozen peaches, lime juice, and mint leaves until liquid.
Garnish the bottom of the glass with blackberries, mint leaves, and a peach slice (frozen is fine).
Pour the blended mixture into two glasses, then top with 1/3 can of 7-up.
Garnish with blackberries, mint leaf, a lime or peach slice.
Add a straw and enjoy!
But you’ve got to try it for yourself and tell me what you think!
