Cranberry Peach Sangria
If peaches aren’t in season, you can buy frozen peaches. When cranberries are in season each fall, be sure to buy a few extra bags and freeze them so you have them on hand year-round!
Ingredients for Cranberry Peach Sangria
1/2 cup water
4 cups 100% cranberry juice
1-750 ml bottle light bodied red wine (Sangiovese, Tempranillo)
1/2 cup Cointreau, Grand Marnier or other orange-flavored liqueur
2 peaches, peeled, and cut into slices
1 orange, thinly sliced
1 cup frozen cranberries (optional garnish)
In a small saucepan over medium heat, dissolve the sugar in the water to create a simple syrup.
Combine simple syrup, wine, Cointreau, cranberry juice, peaches and orange slices in a large pitcher and let stand at room temperature for 3 hours, then refrigerate until chilled.
When chilled and ready to serve, add frozen cranberries.
