This Spiced Peach Sangria is the perfect party drink. Red wine, cloves, and peaches give this sangria such a comforting flavor. Make a pitcher and invite some friends over, you won’t be sorry!
Anyone who knows me at all, knows that I love wine. There is always a box of cheap white wine in my fridge at all times. In college I had a box of white wine under my bed so it was never out of reach. I like red fine enough, but I like it much better made into sangria.
For some reason fall foods get all the warming spices. That time of year is filled with cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves, flavors often forgotten the rest of the year. To me cloves and peaches is the perfect flavor combination, warming and refreshing at the same time. When I make this sangria I infuse some cinnamon and clove into some OJ with honey, making this sangria so comforting.
Lots of sangria’s are finished with some sort of liquor and soda. I generally don’t keep liquor in the house and definitely don’t keep soda in the house. Instead this sangria is finished with kombucha, still giving it that carbonated kick but make it a bit healthier. (I mean as healthy as sangria can be…) I used the Mother Kombucha ginger lemonade in my sangria, but any ginger flavored would be fine.
