Here’s the ultimate beverage of the summer. It’s cool, sparkling, refreshing and sweet as sugar. It also happens to be a favorite of Hoda + Kathy Lee on the Today show last week. Happy sparking summer!
Sparkling White Peach Sangria
With fresh mint and a touch of natural sweetness, this drink gives the whole party a reason to toast!
1 Bottle of Sparking extra dry wine, chilled, I love my Woodbridge sparkling brut! Tastes like a million bucks, and will only cost you $10!
2 Tablespoons of chopped fresh mint, julienne
2 Thinly sliced white peaches, or yellow peaches
2 C White Grape Juice, chilled
1 Tablespoon of honey for sweetness
1- In a large pitcher, mix the peaches, the white grape juice, honey and mint (muddle w/ wooden spoon) (with the exception of the sparkling wine)And allow the mixture to set for approx 10 minutes or so.
2-Add in the sparkling wine, give it a whirl just before service. Top with a sliced peach on the rim and mint sprig!
*Pour into little mason jars for an elegant touch you can also use short or no stem wine glasses with paper straws, an ice cube or two if needed.
