All right, people — we’re in the thick of summer, so it’s time to belly up to the bar for some ice-cold sangria with ripe summer fruit.
Please don’t go to that bad place in your mind of sickly sweet concoctions and hangovers so horrible that you’ll swear off the stuff. Great sangria can be refreshing, and it’s perfect for a summer party.
2 to 3 medium white peaches, sliced, divided
3/4 cup peach or apricot brandy
1 (750-ml) bottle Moscato wine, such as 7 Daughters, chilled
1 liter peach seltzer water, such as Seagram's Sparkling White Peach, chilled
Place 3/4 of the sliced peaches and brandy in a pitcher and gently muddle.
Add the Moscato and seltzer water.
Stir with wooden spoon to mix.
Pour into ice-filled glasses and top with a couple of fresh peach slices.
I like the 7 Daughters Moscato because it is delicious and under $15 a bottle!
