White Sangria with peaches and nectarines
I always thought red was my #1 sangria, but after the white sangria at La Luna Negra trumped any red I’ve ever tasted I find myself unable to make a definitive choice. Fortunately, I have sangria enthusiasts in my family so I was able to have both the red and white variety at my family birthday barbecue party a few weekends ago. I tackled this one, using two bottles of a pinot grigio along with some triple sec, peach juice, and probably a splash (or two or five) of brandy or rum. It was cool, refreshing, and light. I sipped on my first glass on the covered patio while enjoying a quiet moment to reflect the joy of being surrounded by my loving family, and to remember my grandmother, whose birthday I was born on. Cheers, gran, this one is for you.
