White Peach and Basil Sangria

Try this refreshing take on white sangria, using spiralized citrus, peaches, and fragrant basil for a summery, strong drink! 

White Peach and Basil Sangria

If you didn’t know you could spiralize citrus, let me be the one to break the news to you: YOU CAN! And it’ll now be the best thing that’s happened to you and your kitchen skills!

White Peach and Basil Sangria

I love spiralizing citrus for waters in the summertime when we have guests over – it’s always an impressive way to present water (in a clear pitcher, of course.) The only caveat: you’ll need to remember to trim those noodles! If you don’t trim them, it’ll be hard to drink the water, you’ll be sipping fruit noodles!

Now, the peaches and basil give this sangria an extra summery, floral vibe – and a good way to use up those peaches you get at the farmer’s market (the juicier, the better!)

I don’t love sweet cocktails or drinks, so this sangria definitely is lower on the sweet level and stronger on the alcohol level! If that’s your vibe, you’ll love this sangria. It calls for peach or apricot sangria (which I don’t even know existed), but it makes a big difference in the flavor here, so try to find it. If you can’t, regular brandy works in a pinch!

If you need a little bit of sweetness, you could add a 1/2 cup of orange juice or stir in some sugar when you whisk together the alcohol (before adding the fruit.) If you omit the peaches, add another orange!

And that’s about it.. enjoy this sangria, cheers to you and me!
