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.

  1. 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.

    • Thanks Sandra….and I am loving all of your suggestions on how to care for candles! Lots of great advice in that post! : )

  2. Lovely!

  3. What a lovely way to unwind with a glass of this beautiful sangria!

  4. 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. :-)

  5. What a beautiful drink my friend, it looks absolutely stunning :D
    And must be refreshing heaven!

    • Thanks Uru….and in about 4 more years, you can have one! (wink). I hope you are studying hard. Your brookies look amazing! : )

  6. Ovo stvarno dobro izgleda!

  7. 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.

    • Hester….thanks so much! I hope you enjoy this ‘tipple’, too! And your cider can chicken looks absolutely fantastic! Happy Birthday to your dad! : )

  8. Anne, this looks sooo good! I wish I could sip on it… Will have to wait till baby is done with her Mama’s juice. Or not. ;) She’ll sleep better! :)

    • 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! : )

  9. I loveeee sangria…it’s so refreshing but has huge flavours. Love your version, just hope summer can get here faster so I can work with stone fruits again!

    • 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! : )

  10. Very fruity and pleasant!

  11. Sweet Anne, this looks simply stunning! I love the cherries on the glass – so adorable! And munching on wine drenched fruit sounds perfect! xoxo

    • 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! : )

  12. We made lots of sangria this summer. I love the stone fruit in this too…so brilliant! I am heading to Portland tomorrow and participating in a dinner with stone fruit growers, so excited!

    • Thanks Cassie and I can’t wait to hear all about the conference when you get back! Have a fabulous time and safe travels! : )

  13. That is fabulous and I love how you captured that cherry!!

  14. I don’t even drink but i want this…hahaha
    That shot is awesomeeeee! I can even see the tiny bubbles….so beautiful!!!

    • LOL…well what a compliment, then. Thank you Abeer! And I LOVE your mini Boston Cream Pies….with those wonderful chocolate sprinkles! : )

  15. I love the bubbles!

  16. I can imagine it must very relaxing sipping this beautiful drink with the view of a warm summery sunset… Ops! I think I have to stop dreaming :p

  17. I think sangria is what I’ve missed most being pregnant this summer – this looks so perfectly refreshing!

  18. Those bubbles make that drink look incredible…. what a fantastic photo! I bet this fruity drink hits the spot on a long hot day. :)

  19. Love this! Looks so refreshing.

  20. 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!

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

  22. So fruity and tasty! I love sangria and I’m totally making a pitcher of this over the weekend. :)

  23. That photo is absolutely amazing! I think I might make this with club soda to keep it from getting too sweet. Great recipe!

  24. It’s like 40*C over here, my laptop is slowly cooking itself and this sangria would be a blessing. It sounds so refreshing.

  25. Gorgeous! I’m pretty together a brunch menu for tomorrow afternoon :) Guess what just made the cut, WOWSA!

  26. Lovely sangria! Love the fresh fruit!

  27. This looks amazing and I am going to add it to my Mouth Watering Mondays post this Monday. Come on over to see it at http://www.noshingwiththenolands.com Cheers, Tara
