PEACH PEAR SANGRIA
This is one to maybe put in your back pocket for when the sun comes out but Friday was a perfect day for it. It is a refreshing warm-day cocktail for sure!!
1 bottle (750 ml) of Pinot Grigio (or Chardonnay)
1/4 c of fine sugar
1 c of pear nectar (or juice)
2 c of sparkling peach flavored water
thinly sliced peaches and/or pears
Combine wine, sugar, pear nectar, and flavored water. Stir vigorously until sugar is dissolved. Mix in sliced fruit and voila. Sangria!
We did not do this (and it was still delish) but if you have the time ---do this instead--- combine wine, sugar, and pear nectar. Stir vigorously until sugar is dissolved. Mix in sliced fruit. Let chill in fridge for 2 - 6 hours. Top with sparkling water (do this right before serving so it won't get flat). Letting it sit will enhance all the flavors.
A BIG THANK YOU as always to Cellar Wine & Spirits for providing us with the tasty wine to make this month's 2nd Friday cocktail happen!! Everyone that had one and enjoyed it...make sure the next time you go into Cellar (which will probably be sooner than later to pick up the ingredients for Sangria, wink) make sure you thank them!!
