Nectarine Sangria

NectarineSangria

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.

Nectarines are in season and they are perfect everywhere. On a road trip to San Francisco. While camping at the base of Mount Baldy.  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.

Ingredients

  • 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

Method

Mix the white wine, Grand Marnier, and peach nectar in a pitcher. Add the chopped nectarines and strawberries. Refrigerate overnight. Serve over ice.
