Laura’s Georgia Peach Sangria

August 7, 2011

Laura is here! She’s visiting from NY! Hooray! I can’t remember the last time I have was so excited. Nothing like girl talk and catching up, it’s a relief to all things (see Steel Magnolias in previous post… or just see the movie in general).

It was Friday, we both worked, we both would need a nice stiff drink, since we’re in Georgia, it was Peach Sangria time!

 

Holy Sangria, it might be deadly. It’s a bottle of dry white wine (I used my favorite, Sauvignon Blanc). It was on sale at Wal-mart, which is probably not a good thing. I am writing this a few days before the posting, so there’s a small possibility it killed us and she may hate me. If we got headaches, I’m sorry Laura.

Oh yea, I got this rabbit wine opener as a thank you gift. It’s probably the most overlooked item I ever received. It went unused in my cabinet for a year until my friend Jim showed me how to use it. Now my skinny and weak arms can crack open any bottle of wine. Yes friends, if you buy me such gifts, I will help move your couch any day.

Back to sangria! One bottle of white wine and a cup of Peach vodka. I’m a bit of a vodka purist, not a fan of the flavored stuff. However it’s imperative in something like sangria to help make it deadly. I’m pretty sure recipe only called for ¾ of a cup… Keep that note from Laura….

A giant scoop of this frozen lemonade stuff… I don’t normally drink sugary drinks (yes, I’m boring), so I can’t wait to see how long the rest of this lemonade stuff is left in my freezer.

A quarter cup of sugar, which yes, I did cringe putting it in. But it’s a key to deathly success.

Best part? Fresh Georgia peaches! Plenty! Keep chopping! It’s August, everyone loves fruit!

But you need something else to soak up some of that vodka, so halve some seedless grapes and we’ll be set to go. I love having friends visit and taking time to prepare this stuff.

I’m such a Martha Stewart dork. Did I mention I bought 5 boxes of cereal and 4 brands of yogurt because I wasn’t sure what she liked? I don’t even eat cereal.

Looks lovely right? Oh man, if only her flight wasn’t delayed, I would have had a few glasses already right after work. Airlines are so hit or miss.

Set it and forget it! Leave in the fridge for proper fermentation and hours later you will have a perfect girl talk beverage.

    These look wonderful. I love the no added sugar, chia seeds, and cpmolex carbs! Too much sugar has a tendency to ruin recipes for me. I’m going to have to make these very soon, thanks for the lovely recipe

    Mentioned sum. If QuotesChimp possess an original or traditional automobile, you’re able to concur in advance by means of your underwriter regarding precisely just how significantly the automobile will undoubtedly be worth should a state be created. This really is finished having a mentioned sum sanction. But should you prefer to mention the worths of the automobiles you’re covering, you might perhaps not really get that number in case your own car is totaled, because the insurance company may spend you less when the particular cash-value of the automobile has slid under the sum mentioned in the indorsement.
