Peach Cider Sangria

Cider Recipe: White Peach Cider Sangria

Sangria is what you want in hand as you’re floating in a pool, digging your toes into the sand, or enjoying those fleeting just-before-sunset vibes on the back patio. For this refreshing, easygoing recipe, you’ll want to find ripe (but not overripe) white peaches, as their light-colored flesh is sweeter and less tart than yellow peaches. You’ll already be getting plenty of crisp tartness from the hard cider in the mix, and white peach’s mellow flavor melds so well with the dry white wine and the sweet schnapps.

The secret weapon in this white peach cider sangria is the heaping two cups of fresh mint that lighten the whole thing up with a zippy, herbal green flavor. Mix up a pitcher, remembering to allow time to let it chill in the fridge for at least a few hours, and enjoy some epic chill times. As a little bonus, enjoy the booze-soaked peaches that float in the sangria for a tipsy snack.
