Ah, Sangria, could there be a more perfect summer drink?    You really can make it any way and it just comes out perfect.  While I normally prefer red wine to white.  When it comes to sangria, I am much more partial to White Sangria.  Maybe because I feel that white wine is more of a summer beverage.

I stumbled upon this drink when I was on Pinterest one day.  Don’t you just love Pinterest? If you’re not on it, you gotta check it out.  Its great.  Any way, back to what I was saying… I found this recipe on Pinterest, originally on A Cozy Kitchen, who adapted from Bon Appetite.

This is soooo good.  I made a double batch for TJ’s birthday party last week thinking it would be enough. Really, how much sangria are we going to drink at a 3 year olds party?  HA! I had to send people to the liquor store twice to get more wine to make more!  So the second and, uh um, third batch did not sit for 2 hours but it was still yummy.  Seriously we were really putting it away :-)

Go ahead and make this for your next get together, or just to keep in your fridge to enjoy.  You are really going to love it.

Ingredients

Strawberry Rosemary Syrup

  • 1 Cup diced Strawberries
  • 2 TBS water
  • 2 TBS truvia
  • 2 Sprigs of Rosemary

Sangria

  • Strawberry Rosemary Syrup
  • 1 750ml White Wine (I used Chardonnay)
  • ¼ cup peach schnapps
  • ¼ cup triple sec
  • 1 orange
  • ½ cup diced strawberries
  • 1 lime
  • 1-cup peaches (I used frozen peaches that I thawed because there were not any good fresh peaches at the store, you can use either)
  • Rosemary Sprigs for Garnish

To make the syrup:

Add diced strawberries, truvia, water and rosemary to a pot.

Cook for 5-10 minutes over a medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the strawberries break down.

Take the strawberry mixture and press it through a mesh strainer.  Discard the strawberries and rosemary.

To make the Sangria: 

Cut the orange and limes into rounds and then into half moons.

Add them to the bottom of the pitcher and pour the syrup on top.  Slightly mash the oranges and limes with a wooden spoon.

Add the strawberries and peaches.

Pour in the wine (glub, glub)

Add the tripe sec and peach schnapps and gently stir

Let sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours. Serve over ice with a rosemary sprig.

Sit back, relax and enjoy!

I am ready for summer, are you?
