What You’ll Need

First things first, let’s assemble our ingredients. You’ll need the following:

ingredients on a board (to make peach sangria)
  • Cava – 1 bottle of chilled Cava (or another brut/dry sparkling white wine)
  • Peach Schnapps – 1 1/2 cup Peach Schnapps
  • Fresh Peaches – 2 ripe peaches
  • Orange Juice – 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • Orange – 1 orange
  • Lemon – 1 lemon
  • Ice, to serve

Ingredient Notes:

  • Sweetness: Peach Schnapps is generally quite sweet, so the Sangria is sweet enough from the combination of Peach Schnapps and fresh orange juice (without adding any additional sugar). However, if you find you want this a bit sweeter, you can add simple syrup. You can buy simple syrup or you can easily make it at home by dissolving sugar in water (1 cup sugar to 1 cup water) and then cooling it down. You can also add more Peach Schnapps but consider that will increase the alcohol content further.

How to Make it (with Photos)

Step 1 – Cut the orange and lemon in half and then into thin slices. Cut the peaches into small cubes or thin slices (to your preference). Add all the cut fruit to a pitcher with the orange juice and Peach Schnapps and mix it in.

Option 2: Distribute the pitcher contents (the fruit, orange juice, and Peach schnapps) into 6 glasses, add ice, and top with Cava. This is a good option if you don’t have a large enough pitcher to hold the Sangria (at least 1.8 liters (64 oz)).
