“Wine-ing” and Relaxing After a Long Week

Peach Sangria with Frozen Rasberries


Well, its been a long week. A long LONG week for me. I don’t work Monday through Friday like most people and for me, Today my weekend begins. How am I spending today? In order to stop my whining about the long week, with some WINE of course!

There is nothing like a good glass of wine to sit down with and relax with my thoughts. I’m actually sipping as I write this post. The weather is nice, not hot, not cool, just right and my reisling is cool and crisp and sweet because I made it into my favorite drink – PEACH SANGRIA!

I figure I’d share the recipe, its pretty standard, but I added a few elements that I found online.

This recipe is enough for a serving size of 4.

  • 2 (375 ml) bottles Riesling wine
  • 1/2 cup peach schnapps
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 ripe peaches, cut into wedges or 1 1/2 use half a jar of preserved peach slices
  • 1/2 orange, sliced
  • 1/2 lemon, sliced
  • Combine all of the ingredients, be careful not to make a mess as the fruit may cause the pitcher to overflow.

    Chill the sangria overnight for more flavor OR

    Add ice just before you serve it

    and get into your most relaxing chair or position on the couch and relax with a good book or the remote.
