Sparkling Peach Sangria

Peach season might be my favorite time of the year.

Just imagine finding the perfect peach …

It’s a beautiful, early summer day. The sun is warm and there’s a good breeze.

You grab your favorite sunglasses, hop in the car, and turn up the music for a long drive.

{Do other people still go for rides like I do? I hope so. It’s good for the soul.}

On your drive, you spot a little sign on the road that says “Peaches! 1 Mile.”

Since you’re already in blissful impulse land, you decide to pull over.

You give a friendly “hello” to the sweet sun-kissed farmer and start perusing the fruit.

You spot a large, vibrant, fuzzy, warm peach.

You pick it up … it’s heavier than it looked … and give it a whiff.

Oh my goodness.

It’s the sweetest, most intense, peachiest peach smell you’ve ever experienced.

It smells like summer love and patio dinner parties.

You gladly hand the farmer $5 for a large box and start imagining how you’ll put these amazing gems to good use.

At least, that’s what I did last weekend.

I came up with a few incredible ode-to-the-peach recipes that I can’t wait to share with you.

For starters, let’s have a cocktail.


Like peaches? Like sangria? How about champagne?

Welp, I’ve got JUST the drink for you, my friend!

I made peach sangria by infusing a sweet moscato wine with fresh-cut peaches and fresh thyme.

Thyme?? Yes, it’s my favorite herb to compliment a peach. Check out my Paleo Peach Cobbler for another example.

I stirred in a bottle of prosecco {Italian sparkling wine} just before serving to take the edge off the sweetness and give the cocktail even more bubbly life.

The peach, thyme, and sparkling wine make this a well-balanced, fragrant, refreshing cocktail that everyone loved.




Start off by cutting the peaches into slices.


Toss them into a large pitcher.


Grab a bottle of chilled moscato. I used this 2012 Saracco Moscato d’Asti. It’s slightly fizzy, affordable, and award winning. Score!

Open the bottle …


Pour it over the peaches.


Add a few sprigs of fresh thyme and then let the mixture chill for at least 4 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.


When you’re ready to serve, grab a bottle of champagne, prosecco, or sparkling white wine. I used this organic Monetto Prosecco D.o.c. Treviso.


Pour it into the pitcher and stir.


Serve over ice and garnish with fresh thyme and a peach wedge.
