This, of all things, is my first post – a sangria recipe. It captures what my summer is shaping up to be – one recipe after another, one ingredient after another, completely taking over my senses.
Nectarines must be in season because they’ve been appearing everywhere – on a roadtrip from San Francisco back to L.A. and at Trader Joe’s while shopping for a camping trip to Manker Flats. I wanted to make a white wine Sangria with peaches but all I wanted were nectarines, so after reading through a couple of recipes, I created this. I Can’t. Get. Enough.
Some cool nectar for a hot summer night, with friends.
Two 750-ml Bottles of Sauvignon Blanc
2 cups Grand Marnier
Two 12-ounce cans Peach Nectar
4 Fresh Nectarines
3 cups of Fresh Strawberries
Sitr the white wine, Grand Marnier, and peach nectar in a pitcher. Then add the chopped nectarines and strawberries. Refrigerate overnight. Serve over ice.
