Here’s another cool and refreshing Sangria, perfect for hot summer afternoons by the pool. There really are no rules when it comes to mixing up fruit and wine combinations. Ginger Ale, Sprite or Club Soda all work. Just about any white wine will do. I like a relatively dry Chardonnay but use whatever you like.
- Chardonnay, 1.5 liter bottle
- Simple Syrup, 1/2 cup or so
- Peaches, 2 or 3
- Strawberries, a dozen or so
- Peach Schnapps and/or Brandy, 1 cup
- Ginger Ale
Pour in most of the wine along with the peach schnapps. How much wine might depend on how much your pitcher holds. You can refrigerate it for a while at this point if you like. Since I never plan far enough ahead, I had no time for that, what with a houseful of thirsty guests.
