Sangria is something that I remember from my childhood. Hang on! Not because I was drinking it (seriously!!) But because I remember my mom ordering it. Like the red wine variety with chunks of apple and orange. You know what I am talking about?

But the wonderful thing about Sangria is that it has so much more range than that. It’s just about combining wine and brandy and fruit together in a delicious concoction- and I can think of about 100 ways I would like to do that!

Including this lovely version: Nectarine Sangria. Trader Joes makes me so happy at this time of year with their crates of delicious peaches and nectarines, and I just want to make stuff with them non-stop!

And they completely inspired this fruit puree and then the rest of the drink.

I also love sangria because you can make it by the pitcher (or jug- no judgement) and leave it out as a no-fuss signature cocktail at any dinner party or summer gathering.

( I also garnished it with lavender sprigs. You totally don’t have to- but they are so pretty and add the slightest hint of floral that I really liked!)

  1. I’ve said it before, you make the best drinks! Love this one! Peach or nectarine (or pineapple or mango) sangria is my fave! Much prefer the lighter ones to the reds! So pretty!

    Trying to pin but getting this weird msg: “We’re having some trouble talking to farm3.staticflickr.com. Please try again later!” Just a heads up :)

  2. Love the flavour Heather!! This drink sounds so yummy!

  3. Gorgeous, Heather. And Sangria is becoming a cool drink again!

  8. Mmmm.. I love your nectarine Sangria! So light and refreshing. I like the reds when it’s cooler outside but I love the whites this time of year.

    Hello Heather, I made this punch this past weekend for an outdoor birthday celebration and everyone loved it. I really liked eating the slices of nectarines that were leftover and marinating in the liquor!
