Thirsty Thursdays: Strawberry Peach Sangria

May 31, 2012

This strawberry peach sangria is the perfect drink during the summertime.  Chunks of peaches and strawberries are muddled to release their fruity flavors and then mixed with a crisp white wine (preferably Sauvignon Blanc) and a dash of peach schnapps (go for the good stuff).  This cocktail is light and refreshing- just what you want to sip on a hot day.

1 ripe doughnut, UFO peach; pitted, pealed & quartered
