White Wine Sangria with Nectarines and Peaches

If you ask those dear to me, they would say my poison of choice would be a nice glass of dry red wine or a Grey Goose cocktail (oh—and of course bubbly). But on those warm summer days, I find that a chilled fruity glass of White Wine Sangria is the perfect accompaniment to any occasion.

This quick and easy White Wine Sangria recipe serves as a great base for any direction you’d like to take this refreshing summer cocktail. Often times I’ll substitute the nectarines with sweet mangoes or leave out a bottle of the white wine at the beginning only to top it off before serving with a chilled bottle of Prosecco — for that added effervescent fun that only “bubbly” can offer. And finally, for those who enjoy sweeter wines, try adding a few tablespoons of simple syrup to round out the flavors of the fresh fruit.

With us well into the month of July….what are you waiting for? Mix up a pitcher of these and you’ll wonder why you ever waited so long to do so before. 🙂

Salut!
