Stone Fruit Sangria

Stone Fruit Sangria | From My Sweet Heart

Serves 8

  • 1 peach, halved, pitted and sliced
  • 1 plum, halved, pitted and sliced
  • 1 nectarine, halved pitted and sliced
  • 1 apricot, halved pitted and sliced
  • 20 cherries, pitted
  • 1/4 cup of peach schnapps
  • 1 bottle (750 ml) chilled white wine
  • 4 cups of chilled 7-up ( or you may also use ginger ale or club soda)

Place sliced fruit in a large pitcher.  Add peach schnapps, wine and let it stand in refrigerator for an hour.  Then add  7-up.  Serve over ice.

This cocktail is my homage to some of the best of summer’s fruit. It’s my swansong to summer, if you will.  Because I decided to enjoy a variety of stone fruit all at once while I contemplate what I’m going to be baking for fall!  It’s light and refreshing and sweetly peachy!  And when your cocktail is gone, the wine soaked fruit is the perfect snack to munch on while you are waiting for your refill!  As always, I pair my cocktails with a piece of music that I love.  Today, that is Caroline Herring, singing Stone Cold World.

    Sipping on this while contemplating baking sounds like a perfect relaxation technique. And I’m so happy that I’m not the only one thinking of eating the wine soaked fruit.

    Your sangria is so pretty. I love the cherry is hanging on both side of the glass – and all the bubbles… such a perfect shot! I don’t drink much alcohol but when I do, I love it to be fruity and sweet and delicious. This sounds like a perfect drink for me. :-)

    Anne, this is a very pretty drink – I much prefer white sangria to red and the fruits you have chosen are perfect. I love your description of swansong to summer. I’m going to put this tipple on my father’s birthday menu on Saturday.

      Oh thanks Kate….I know it definitely made ME sleep better! Hope you can try some soon. Meanwhile….I’d be content to gobble down spoonfuls of your home made nutella! : )

      Thanks Jenny and I hope ‘your summer’ gets there soon. On the other hand, ‘my fall’ is just around the corner….and just in time for your luscious prawn noodle soup! That looks pretty amazing! : )

      Oh thanks Anna….this would be good with your spicy tortilla chips….and a couple of your perfect Cook’s Illustrated chocolate chip cookies for dessert! : )

    I had a peach sangria at a party the other day and it was quite good; however, I think this one with the mix of fruit would be much better!!! Love the combination of fruit and especially the addition of cherries. Definitely would be munching down on the fruit while waiting for another drink. :) Can’t wait to see what you bake up for us this fall!!! One of my goals once I have a kitchen again is to start baking more and your place is a great place to come to for recipes!

    Oh, yeah…this is my kind of sangria! LOVE that you used all that beautiful stone fruit…and white wine is my preference, too :)
