- 1 bottle rose wine 750 ml
- 5 ounches peach brandy
- 1/8 cup sugar
- 2 large peaches
- 2 large nectarines
- 12 ounces grapefruit sparkling water
A cutting board
A paring knife (or other sharp small knife)
A corkscrew or wine opener
A measuring cup (for liquids)
A measuring cup (for sugar)
A wooden spoon (for stirring)
Plastic wrap or a lid for the pitcher
Peel off the skin of the peaches with the small sharp knife and cutting board.
Cut the peaches into slices with the knife. First make a cut into the peach from top to bottom, then do the same cut about a quarter inch to the right. Then scoop the knife under the peach flesh to cut it away from the peach. Peach slices can be put on the cutting board or directly into the pitcher. Repeat the process until all of the peach is sliced up. Discard the peels and the pits.
Once the peaches are all peeled and sliced, wash the nectaries and cut them into slices as well. Leaving the peel on the nectarines gives some contrast to the fruit in the sangria, but you can also peel them if you want to. Place them in the pitcher once they’re all sliced and discard the pits.
Open the wine bottle with a corkscrew or wine opener (if the bottle has a cork) and pour the contents into the pitcher.
Measure the peach brandy with a measuring cup and pour that into the pitcher as well.
Measure the sugar with a measuring cup and also pour that into the pitcher.
Stir the mixture with a wooden spoon to mix in the sugar. Cover the pitcher with plastic wrap (or put a lid on if the pitcher has a lid) and let sit overnight or up to 36 hours.
Just before serving, open the sparkling water and pour into the pitcher. Stir gently to combine, then serve.
