This Easy Peach Sangria recipe is a simple white sangria with rum and fresh peaches! It’s the perfect summer sangria recipe for peach season!
I’ve been turning out cocktails like crazy lately but I just realized I don’t have very many sangria recipes on this site. In fact, the only official “sangria” I have is Margarita Sangria (just what it sounds like: a combination of margaritas and sangria!) I also have a Lemonade Prosecco Punch which is basically a sparkling sangria, as is my Rosé Punch.
If you like sangria, you’re in luck, because I have three recipes in the queue to share with you! First up: Peach Sangria. Summer is peach season and I know that all things peach are starting to show up all over the internet. I’m not a huge peach fan, but I do love peach schnapps…and I know you guys all love peach recipes. My Peach Pie and Blueberry Peach Dump Cake recipes go crazy this time of year.
Dessert shouldn’t have all the fun – it’s time that peach got into the cocktail action!
Peach Sangria is an easy and delicious white sangria recipe with rum and fresh fruit for summer parties!
What is Sangria?
Sangria is a cocktail made with wine, liquor and fruit. You simply mix the three and then let the punch sit for a few hours to blend the flavors. That’s another reason it’s the perfect party punch: you can make it ahead of time. Everyone enjoys sangria and it’s easy to make with white or red wine.
Basic Sangria is an easy party punch recipe with three main ingredients:
- Wine (red or white, depending on what kind of sangria you’re making)
- Fresh or frozen fruit
Sometimes, like when I made this peach sangria, I add another liqueur to add more flavor. In this case I added some peach schnapps for more peach flavor.
What kind of wine should you use to make white sangria?
The kind of wine you use for sangria depends on the flavors of your sangria and your tastes.
- For white sangria you want to use a lighter wine as opposed to an “Oakey” one like Chardonnay. I prefer using Sauvignon Blanc or Pino Grigio (or even a white blend) for white sangria.
- For red sangria, it is again about taste but often people use Merlot or Pinot Noir for red sangria.
This is peach sangria with rum, which is one of the options for added liquor.
Depending on what kind of sangria you’re making, you’ll want to add about 1 cup of liquor to the wine and fruit.
- White sangrias are usually made with rum or vodka. Try using flavored rum or vodka for a flavored sangria!
- Red sangrias often contain Brandy.
- Sometimes sangrias have a bit of liqueur in addition to the hard alcohol, for flavor.
My peach sangria with rum is also made with peach schnapps for even more peach flavor!
Peach sangria is an easy white sangria recipe!
It’s summer in a glass, basically.
Sangria also usually has some sort of bubbly aspect to it. Now, you can make sparkling peach sangria by using Prosecco or sparkling wine instead of the white wine. But most often white sangria has club soda or lemon lime soda mixed into the white wine.
This recipe calls for lemon lime soda, either regular or diet, but you can substitute club soda for a less sweet drink. (Club soda is actually my go-to of choice because I like a less sweet cocktail.)
It’s easy to make a variety of peach sangria recipes with this simple base recipe.
Simply substitute the wine to make a red wine peach sangria or add additional fruit, like strawberries. One of my best friends makes a Strawberry Peach Sangria recipe that’s to-die-for.
Tip for keeping sangria cold:
One of my favorite ways to keep sangria cold is to add frozen fruit instead of fresh. You can use either fresh or frozen peaches for this sangria recipe.
It will be fantastic no matter how you make it! Add more rum, less peach schnapps or any combination to make the perfect peach sangria to your liking.
