Peach Sangria with Rosé Wine Details
Level of Difficulty: Simple! All that you need to do is chop, pour and mix to make this easy and fresh cocktail!
Time: This peach sangria requires 5 minutes of chopping, 30 minutes of waiting and less than 5 minutes to mix all the ingredients together. It is perfect to prepare ahead of time of a large crowd.
Flavor: Sweet! The peaches and the strawberries give the cocktail a sweet, summer flavor. Depending on your taste, you can use a sweet rosé wine for a sweeter drink or use a dry rosé wine to balance the sweetness.
Ingredients and Substitutions
- Rosé Wine: This recipe calls for a 750 ml bottle. However, you can simply double this recipe by using a large bottle of wine. Choose a rosé wine that you enjoy drinking. Keep in mind, the peaches and strawberries combined with sugar will add more sweetness to the peach sangria.
- Peach Schnapps: If you do not have peach schnapps on hand, you could use peach vodka. The peach sangria will be less sweet if using vodka. Add more sugar to the drink if needed. You could also use peach juice. This will result in a peach sangria with less alcohol.
- Peaches: Use canned peaches or frozen peaches if you cannot use fresh peaches. Canned peaches do not need to be mixed with sugar before adding to the pitcher.
- Strawberries: Substitute raspberries or watermelon.
- White Sugar
- Sparkling Water: The sparkling water makes the peach sangria fizzy. You could substitute club soda, Sprite or ginger ale. Additionally, you could top the sangria with prosecco. This will add more alcohol content to the cocktail.
How to Make Peach Sangria with Rosé Wine
- Start with clean produce. Chop peaches and strawberries into bite size pieces.
- Add 2 chopped peaches and 1 cup chopped strawberries to a medium mixing bowl. Sprinkle fruit with granulated sugar. Gently stir in sugar to coat the fruit. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Place the remaining 1 chopped peach and ½ cup chopped strawberries on medium size skewers. These fruit skewers will be used as cocktail garnishes.
- Add rosé wine, peach schnapps and sugar coated fruit to a large pitcher. Stir to combine.
- To serve, fill wine glasses half way with ice cubes. Pour peach sangria to cover ice cubes. Add chopped fruit from the pitcher to each glass. Top with sparkling water and garnish with a peach-strawberry skewer.
- Add the sparkling water right before serving and add directly to the glass that you are serving the sangria in. If you add the sparkling water to the pitcher and it sits, the water will go flat resulting in a sangria that tastes watered down and not fizzy.
- Use a large bottle of wine (a 1.5 liter bottle) to double this recipe. This amount is perfect to quench a crowd's thirst. Serve the peach sangria in a beverage dispenser or a punch bowl. This cocktail is perfect for a summer bridal shower or baby shower.
- Add additional fruit! Everyone loves a fruity drink especially when it is hot outside. Add chopped mango, watermelon or raspberries for a fun summer treat!
- Make sangria ice cubes! If you are serving this peach sangria outside, add some sangria to ice cube trays. Place in freezer. The ice cubes will not completely freeze due to the alcohol, however, they will firm up to become cubes. Use these as ice cubes and keep your peach sangria from becoming watered down.
How do I store peach sangria? Sangria is best enjoyed within 24 hours of making. Store sangria covered and refrigerated. The sangria is still consumable after 24 hours, however, the fruit may become mushy.
Help! I don't have rosé wine! If you do not have rosé wine, you can still make this peach sangria! Substitute your favorite white wine. I would recommend using a drier white wine such as sauvignon blanc or pinot grigio.
Can I make this peach sangria non-alcoholic? Yes! The best way to make this sangria non-alcoholic would be to use a white peach juice in place of the rosé wine and remove the peach schnapps from the recipe. You may need to add additional sugar to drink depending on your preferred sweetness level. You could also use a non-alcoholic rosé wine like this Surely Non-Alcoholic Sparkling Rose.
What is the best rosé wine to use in peach sangria? Use a dry rosé wine in sangria. The sugared fruit and the peach schnapps add extra sugar and sweetness to the cocktail. A dry rosé wine will keep the sangria from being too sweet.
