It’s sangria time!! It’s been a crazy year and I have not made a new sangria in a long time. But today I’m finally sharing a new recipe with you.
My girlfriend was having a little party a few weeks ago and asked everyone to bring a little something. Usually I’ll bring a dip of some kind or a side dish but she specifically requested a sangria recipe.
Side note: I think next time I’ll make some cherry sangria…. Mmm that sounds delish.
Since it is currently the middle of summer, watermelon was the first thing that came to mind.
I love watermelon in the summer and all things watermelon is right up my alley.
Then this white peach watermelon sangria was born.
I figured white peaches this time since they are plentiful and they have a little sweeter flavor than a regular peach.
Of course, you can use regular peaches if you feel like it. Either way it’ll be great and you cannot go wrong.
When I made a watermelon sangria before, I made it with fresh watermelon juice. This time I opted for the pre-made juice as I was short on time when she requested it.
Pre-made watermelon juice has other flavors in it so it’s not 100% watermelon but it works in a pinch.
I’ve made this recipe twice now and the second time I made it with fresh juice and it definitely has a better flavor with the fresh juice.
Anyway, have a great weekend! Make yourself some sangria and relax in the sunshine!
