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.
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!
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
- 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.
- 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.
- If serving to guests, strain out the browning peaches, and replace with freshly sliced peaches, and handful of fresh herbs and serve over ice.
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.
