On a hot summer evening, what could be more refreshing than an icy glass of Peach Sangria? This has been my saving grace, perking me up after days of sweltering heat.  I like to make a big batch and enjoy it over a few days – because surprisingly, it gets even better and better as it infuses in the fridge.
Infuse white wine with fresh summer peaches and your favorite herb – mint, basil, lemon verbena, lemon balm, or lemon thyme – and add a splash of floral, tropical elderflower liqueur, like St-Germain, or an elderflower simple syrup.

For this Peach Sangria recipe, find the most fragrant peaches you can get your hands on. Peaches are just showing up here at our local farmers market.  If you are lucky enough to have them growing in your area, make an effort to buy these, because locally grown peaches are left on the trees longer,  developing more of their real peachy flavor. Peaches that must travel far, are picked before their peak, to account for travel time, so very often they are not as flavorful. In any case, let the peaches ripen on the kitchen counter for a couple of days until they are fragrant and slightly soft. Then they will be perfect for sangria.

If you have herbs growing in your garden use them.  Most any herb will add a lovely flavor.
I especially love mint, basil, or lemony herbs like verbenas, lemon balm, or lemon thyme.
The first step is to let peaches sit at room temperature for a day or two until they soften just a bit, and become fragrant.

Slice 3 ripe peaches. Place the peaches, a bottle of fruity white wine and simple syrup into a large mason jar or pitcher. Add a splash of St. Germain, like a ¼ cup, or more to taste.

Refrigerate and marinate for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight. As the sangria marinates the peaches may turn a little brown after a couple days. This may look unappealing, but the flavor, amazingly, will continue to get better and better.  If serving to guests, I recommend straining out the browning peaches, reserving the sangria, and add a few fresh sliced peaches and a handful of fresh herbs back into the sangria, and serve over ice. I think you will be happy with the flavor.

Enjoy!!!

Description

Simple Refreshing Peach Sangria …a delicious summer cocktail made with white wine and Elderflower liquor (or syrup) that can be made ahead. Perfect for a crowd!


Ingredients

Scale

1 bottle white or rose wine- viognier, pinot grigio, riesling, rose

3 ripe peaches, plus more for garnish

¼ Cup Elderflower liquor like St Germain ( or sub another fruity or floral liqueur- see notes)

¼ Cup sugar

¼ Cup water

Handful fresh herbs- mint, basil, lemon balm, lemon verbena, or lemon thyme


Instructions

  1. Make simple Syrup: Bring sugar, water and a handful of fresh herbs to a simmer, in a small pot on the stove, stirring until sugar dissolves. Let cool either on the counter,  or for an even more intense herb flavor,overnight in the fridge.
  2. Slice peaches.
    Place peaches, wine, herbed simple syrup and a splash or two of Elderflower liquor ( St. Germaine) in a pitcher or large mason jar. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. It will become more and more flavorful if left overnight or even for a couple days. Peaches may brown slightly, but will taste better and better.
  3. If serving to guests, strain out the browning peaches, and replace with freshly sliced peaches, and handful of fresh herbs and serve over ice.

Notes

Instead of making the simple syrup, you could use store-bought elderflower syrup. ( Ikea usually has this!) You can also use liquid honey in place of the simple syrup.

  1. I made this recipe a few nights ago. So delicious!! I used 3/4 c. of peach schnapps for the liqueur and topped it with a splash of sparkling water to give it more of a refreshing taste. Only wish I could have company over to enjoy this with.

  2. Any feel on how to make an alcohol free version? Would love have both options available for a summer gathering. Thanks for any ideas you may have! Beautiful photography/recipe!

    1. Sorry for the delay. My only idea is what about adding sliced fresh peaches to sparkling water or sparkling cider and if you can get the elderflower syrup (Ikea has it) add a splash to taste? Fresh herbs would we nice too. 😉

  3. If I don’t have St Germain, and only have elderflower syrup, how would I alter the recipe a bit? Looks delish, though!

  4. That sounds like a good recipe for sangria , I bet it would go perfectly in my cocktail dispenser made by these guy : http://www.thebeergiraffe.com/en/what-is-a-beer-tower/

  5. One time I spilled half a bottle of St. Germain’s in the trunk of my car and it was the saddest day of my life. Luckily, I still have the other half of the bottle to make this sangria because, holy cow does it look good!!

    I love your photos as well! That turquoise ledge!!!

  6. Oh dear. If I could reach through my computer screen and lap up that sangria like a dog Sylvia, I WOULD! As usual, your photography is stunning and I adore your use of fresh peaches and herbs! We don’t quite have peaches here yet but I’m counting down the days until I do. And then I’m definitely getting drunk, err, refreshed on this. Beauty!

  7. This looks absolutely delicious, thanks for sharing! Perfect summer picnic refreshment.. Francesca
