So, Hubby and I were wanting a little something special to help ring in the New Year. We absolutely LOVE the Peach Sangria that you can get at Carrabba’s so I was on the hunt for great sangria recipe! I stumbled upon a few and found one I really liked that had a nice balance of fruits. If you follow me on Pinterest (if you don’t you know you want to! *wink*) you would know I pinned this recipe a few days before NYE. You can find that original recipe here. But, you know me I had to make it my own so here is the version I whipped up!
This is super duper easy to make and I suggest making it at least 24 hours in advance. This is like a fine spaghetti sauce or stew, the longer it sits the better! You shall need these ingredients:
(enough ingredients for a DOUBLE batch):
2 ea White Wine, bottles, I chose a Chardonnay (next time I make this I will probably go for a sweeter wine like a Riesling but this came out great too!)
2 Cups Frozen Peaches (or half a bag like in the picture)
2/3 Cup Peach Schnapps (We used the leftovers for fuzzy navels! YUM!)
1 ea Pineapple Slices, canned in juice
2 Cups Frozen Strawberries
1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
1/4 Cup Water
First of all I took the sugar and water and melted it on the stove to form a simple syrup and then sat that on the side to cool. Next, I took a large stock pot and dumped the pineapple with juice in the bottom, I cut the slices into quarters. Place the remaining fruits in the pot
and add the rest of the ingredients. I made this about 48 hours in advance. After all that time I did strain out the fruits and kind of smushed them to get any remaining liquid out. Now this is completely optional I just thought maybe the fruit would start to ferment and get icky. But, make it how you wish! I even ate some of the fruit, it was pretty strong with alcohol but still nummy. So, needless to say we had a great New Year’s Eve at home! I hope you enjoy this recipe and if you try it out let me know how it goes! Thanks for reading!
