Drinks of Summer: Simple Sangria

Duke of Manchester PunchThis post is part of Cocktail Culture’s Drinks of Summer series, in which we will feature light & refreshing warm-weather cocktails.

Summer is the season for outdoor entertaining—I can hardly keep count of all the picnics, BBQ, and backyard shin-digs I’ve been invited to this year!

If you’re playing host or hostess to a group this weekend (or any other this summer, for that matter) you’re probably wondering how to stock your bar. Sure, beer & wine are great but a cocktail would be fantastic. Trouble is, you don’t want to be standing in your kitchen all night, shaking them up one at a time. That’s why pitcher or punch bowl drinks are ideal for your next party! Here’s a delicious and simple Sangria recipe. For ice, try freezing water in a bundt cake pan, so it melts slowly and doesn’t water down the whole bowl too quickly. Cheers!

Blushing White Peach Sangria

1 bottle White Zinfandel
1 ¼ cups Hiram Walker White Peach Schnapps
1 ¼ cups fresh Pineapple Juice
1 ½ cups fresh Sour Mix
1 cup Club Soda
10 Fresh Peach slices
20 Fresh Pineapple Chunks

Combine ingredients in a Punch Bowl & stir well. Add ice (from the bundt cake pan) till the bowl is ¾ full.
