This Sensational White Peach Sangria recipe is easy and fun to mix up. It is fruity and refreshing, making it the perfect summer drink!
There are many different versions of sangria out there. I am usually a red wine drinker, but I love this white peach sangria recipe, especially during the hot summer months.
I live in South Carolina, where our peach harvesting season has just begun. (I am writing in mid June!) While Georgia is known as The Peach State, South Carolina actually produces more peaches!
For this recipe you will make a fresh peach puree that adds a great natural peach flavor, sweetness, and texture to the sangria. The white peach sangria can be garnished with a variety of fresh fruit depending on what is in season!
I love mixing up a pitcher of white peach sangria as an alcoholic beverage option to serve when hosting baby showers, bridal showers, graduation parties, and summer get-togethers. I recommend mixing this white peach sangria in advance to allow the ingredients time to soak together. It tastes the best after chilling overnight!
Ingredients You’ll Need
When mixing wine with juices for sangria, please do not waste a good, expensive bottle of wine. The cheap stuff works great! I use Barefoot Sauvignon Blanc for this recipe, which has a crisp flavor. Pinot Grigio or Albarino also taste great in this recipe. I do tend to avoid Chardonnay with its more buttery flavor. Please chill your bottle of white wine prior to use.
You will need 1/2 cup of Peach Schnapps for this recipe. This helps to amplify the peach flavoring and pairs very well with the wine. A good substitute would be peach flavored vodka or rum.
Pineapple juice adds a refreshingly, sweet flavor to this boozy beverage. I use Dole Pineapple Juice.
You will need 1 cup of chilled ginger ale. This will be added last, just prior to serving, as you want the bubbles!
This recipe calls for 3-4 fresh peaches. You will make a fresh peach puree with 1-2 of the peaches and use the other 2 peaches to slice for garnish.
I like to garnish this recipe with fresh strawberries, as they look beautiful and taste delicious soaked in alcohol. You can use your preference of fresh fruit to garnish. You can even use frozen fruit if fresh is not available to you!
Let’s Puree some Peaches!
Start by making the peach puree. I use a Kitchenaid 2 speed hand blender for this step. A Ninja or counter top blender will work well for this step, too!
Peel 1 large the peach. (Use 2 peaches for this step if your peaches are smaller in size.) Then, slice in half and remove the pit. Add the prepared peach halves to the blender cup, along with a splash of water.
Blend the peaches until they are smooth. This yields about 100 mL of peach puree. You can always add a little more puree to the sangria if you have some extra volume!
Slicing the Fruit for Garnish
Always wash and dry your fresh produce.
Slice 2 peaches in half. Peaches can be difficult to separate into halves when ripe and juicy! I squished and squeezed the juice out of a very ripe peach trying to twist the halves to apart when making this recipe!!
It helps to place ripe, fresh peaches in the freezer for about 1 hour prior to halving and slicing to ensure you don’t squeeze all their yummy juice out and so they don’t look like a sliced pile of peach mush!
Once the peaches are halved, remove the pit and thinly slice.
To prep the strawberries, remove the stems and thinly slice.
Mixing up a Pitcher of White Peach Sangria
In a large pitcher, (at least 2 quarts in size) add the sliced fresh fruit.
Then, pour the bottle of white wine, peach schnapps, peach puree and pineapple juice overtop the fruit. Gently mix with a large spoon, being careful not to break the fruit slices.
Chill the white peach sangria. I recommend chilling overnight for the best flavor!
Right before serving, gently mix in 1 cup of chilled ginger ale. And, enjoy! Please grab a spoon to enjoy the boozy fruit in your glass as well! It’s one of the best parts of enjoying this sangria!
- 1- 750 mL bottle of White Wine- Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio or Albarino.
- 1/2 cup Peach Schnapps
- 1 cup Ginger ale
- 1 cup Pineapple Juice
- 3-4 Fresh Peaches (1-2 will be used to make a fresh peach puree)
- 6-7 Fresh Strawberries
Start by making the peach puree:
Peel and core 1-2 of the fresh peaches. (I recommend using 2 peaches if they are small.) Then, using a hand blender, blend the prepared peach(es) with a splash water to puree. This will yield about 100 mL of fresh peach puree.
Slicing the fresh fruit:
Slice 2 peaches in half, remove the core, then thinly slice.
Remove the stems of the strawberries and thinly slice.
Mixing the pitcher of sangria:
Add the fresh fruit to the bottom of a large pitcher. (At
least 2 quarts in size.)
Then, pour the white wine, peach schnapps, pineapple juice
and peach puree over the fruit and gently stir with a large spoon.
Chill the sangria for a minimum of 6 hours, but I recommend
chilling overnight for the best flavor.
Right before serving, add 1 cup of chilled ginger ale. And, enjoy! Be sure to grab a spoon to enjoy the booze soaked fruit as well.
Store the sangria in the refrigerator. Do not add the ginger ale until right before serving, so it keeps its bubbles!
