Frozen Peach Sangria

Have I got a recipe today for you! Ready? Frozen Peach Sangria. Go ahead, imagine it. It is as delicious as it sounds.

Side note: I wonder sometimes what you people must think of me and my alcoholic recipes. I promise I do not drink every night. I drink maybe one night a week, and even then it is only 1 glass of wine. A few weeks ago, I texted a friend to tell her I was making sangria for my 4th of July BBQ. “Of course you are!” was her response. Well, at least I am consistent.

Frozen Peach Sangria

Ingredients:

  • Peaches or nectarines (or a mixture of both – I also added in two apricots!)
  • Sugar
  • Water
  • Moscato wine
  • Ice cube trays

I used 6 peaches, 6 nectarines, and 2 apricots and it made three ice cube trays. You’ll get about 10 drinks out of three ice cube trays and one large bottle of wine.

  1. Make a simple syrup: place 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup of sugar into a saucepan. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and let cool.
  2. Peel your peaches, nectarines, and/or apricots and cut the fruit into chunks.
  3. Add fruit and simple syrup to blender. Blend until smooth, and then pour into your ice cube trays.
  4. Freeze until solid. At that point you can pop the cubes out and place them in a zip lock baggie.
  5. To make your frozen sangria, simply pop out a few cubes and place in your blender. Add wine and blend. You may need to add more wine to make it a drinkable consistency – just play with it until it is the way you like it.

This reminds me a lot of Outback’s Wallaby Darned. It is very very good!
