White Peach Sangria

Happy hour anyone??  You know I love my wine.  White wine especially.  Pino grigio to be exact.  But I'm not opposed to other cocktails, especially those that INCLUDE my beloved alcoholic beverage!  Summer is NOT over yet, even if we've passed Labor Day.  The sun is still high, and the drinks still sweat when you carry them outside.

Sangria is absolutely in order.

Now the name can be misleading.  Because I used strawberries and raspberries, my drink got a little more (ok a lot more) pink than white.  But that's fine.  The fruity flavor was delicious!  And I was using WHITE peaches, so I guess it's all up to interpretation!

Mix together:

1/4 c sugar
2 peaches, peeled and diced
1 cup mixed fruit of your choosing (berries, grapes, go wild!)
1 bottle (750 ml) white wine (pino grigio or chardonnay)
3/4 c peach vodka

Set aside:
1 liter of Ginger Ale (less if you don't like super sweet drinks)

Add all your fruit and sugar to your pitcher and mix gently. Allow to macerate for 5-10 minutes; this allows the sugar to start to breakdown the fruit releasing the juices and making is extra yummy, especially in when added to a liquid.

Dump in your wine and vodka and chill for 2 hours (or even over night.)  Stir in chilled Ginger Ale and serve over ice.  Eat fruit responsibly.  You may have "college wop" flashbacks, but now it's distinguished because you're having it with wine instead of cheap rum.  You're all grown-up now!
