Your new favourite summer drink:
Peach Rose Sangria
If you know me, you’ll know I am ALL ABOUT a sangria. Now thinking about it, it’s probably one of my favourite drinks any time of year. I’ve made so many versions in the past with both red and white wine, but surprisingly I had not tried rosé until now. Really not sure why because rosé is literally like my summer water.
When I came across this recipe for a peach rosé sangria, I pretty much ran to the grocery store… & I don’t regret it one bit. This sangria is seriously incredible. I know it’s not summer in Australia but I just couldn’t resist giving this a go and the result was so good that I felt it would be cruel not to share with you guys! Plus, it’s summer most places in the world, right?
One of my girlfriends actually introduced me to this drink because it was such a hit at one of the parties she’d been to & I can totally see why. I’ve been playing around with the ingredients to make it as easy and healthy as possible, without sacrificing the flavour. In doing so, I’ve left you guys with both the normal version as well as the modified, skinny version below.
A lot of Sangria’s can be quite intimidating (especially when selecting the right wine), but this recipe only take 5 minutes to throw together and works with nearly every kind of rosé. Fun, fruity & PINK. It’s essentially summer in a glass.
I cannot wait for summer to roll around so I can make this on the regular. Doesn’t get much better than a warm night, surrounded by friends, sipping on chilled glasses of peach rosé.
Peach Rosé Sangria
1 bottle rosé wine
½ cup peach liqueur
1/3 cup of simple syrup
3 sliced peaches (I used white & yellow)
1 cup sliced strawberries and/or raspberries
Combine all fruit into a pitcher & adjust to suit your taste. Add fruit and refrigerate for several hours. Serve chilled, over ice.
FOR A SKINNY VERSION:
Omit the simple syrup and use liquid stevia instead. I don’t usually measure it, I just go by taste so you might want to start with a few drops and go from there. Half the peach juice, add 1 cup of soda water and extra fruit!
Are you a fan of sangrias? What’s your summer drink? Also, do you guys like these simple & fun recipes? Do you prefer the skinny version or regular? I’d love to hear all your feedback!
