Sparkling White Peach Sangria Recipe

When I looked through the photos of the cooking class we took in Chile, I noticed I had forgotten to ask Pilar to send me a recipe for the white peach sangria we had made. It was really simple, peaches infused in a Chilean white wine and some sugar added, so I decided to try to replicate it.

Because it’s summertime, I figured I’d make it sparkling. And when we made this, I was at my friend’s house and she happened to have peach schnapps in her kitchen, so we added some of that for extra flavor. We threw in the nectarine for color and texture.

Sparkling White Peach Sangria Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 Bottle of white wine (I used a sauvignon blanc from Chile’s Central Valley)
  • 1/3 cup Peach Schnapps
  • 1/3 cup sugar or more (depending on how sweet you like things) and equal parts water.
  • 2 sliced peaches
  • 1 sliced nectarine
  • 1/2 liter of seltzer water

Preparation:

  1. Make a simple syrup, dissolving equal parts sugar in water over heat. Let cool.
  2. Pour wine and Schnapps in the pitcher and add sliced peach and nectarine. Next add simple syrup and stir gently. Chill mixture for at least one hour. Add sparkling water just before serving.
  3. If you’d like to serve it right away, use chilled white wine and seltzer.

Other ideas: Use ginger ale, Sprite, or sparkling wine instead of seltzer; use an orange instead of nectarine; throw in some strawberries!

  1. YUM! It’s not warm out in the city, but this sounds perfect for pool time!

  2. I’m going to make this next weekend for Tuyen… she’s visiting me tomorrow and we’re going to a Bluegrass show and Virginia wine tasting. I love nectarines!! I’m glad you added them in there. :)

      Oh fun! I remember you mentioning the bluegrass festival. Tell T. I said hi! Use a really ripe nectarine to get the most flavor out of it. The one I used was still pretty firm so it was mostly for texture and color.

  3. This looks so yummy and not super intimidating to make.

      It is and was really easy and just slightly more complicated than the one the Chilean grandma we met made. Hers only had wine, sugar, and peaches! So you can go as simple or complicated as you want.

  4. Mmmmm…I’m going to have to try this!
