Hospitality in a Glass: White Peach Sangria with Elderflower Liqueur

Delicious spring sangria recipe with St. Germaine and Wente Chardonnay

When entertaining is a diehard passion of yours, mixology becomes a huge part of your life. Having been born and raised in the south, hospitality is one of the cornerstones of my personality and lifestyle. Ever since sixth grade, I’ve been planning routine sleepovers, surprise parties for friends, and as of lately, grown up play dates, which are by far the most difficult engagements to plan. Hence, having to throw together a signature cocktail on a whim is something I’ve become accustomed to. My go-to solution for these types of occasions is almost always sangria. Whether it’s white or red is irrelevant; both are easy, and both are crowd pleasers. For this particular spring sangria recipe, just let some fruit soak in a pitcher of Wente Riva Ranch Chardonnay and some St. Germaine (aka sweet elderflower liqueur) overnight, and viola! You’re ready to entertain with some absolutely delicious white peach spring sangria.

Don’t worry– there’s also a printable and downloadable spring sangria recipe card with step-by-step instructions below! Anyways, for those of you who’ve followed by blog for a while now, you know my journey to “professional entertainer” (not the R-rated kind) has been a long and winding road. I definitely went through times during my eating disorder recovery when I didn’t want to see or interact with anyone, including my closest friends and family. One of my favorite things about spring is the notion of new beginnings– and I’m always so grateful that I was blessed with my own a few years ago. So, in the spirit of new beginnings, I dedicate this spring sangria recipe to anyone currently battling a mental illness. You’re not alone, and your new beginning will come, too!

White Peach Spring Sangria Recipe

And now for the spring sangria recipe! I used Wente Riva Ranch Chardonnay and St. Germaine as the base and added in ripe peaches, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. You could also use Wente Louis Mel Sauvignon Blanc or Wente Riverback Riesling for the base, as well. I’m partial to Wente because, as they say, “We don’t make wine because we have to, we do it because we love to.” And I just love that.

      Aw thanks, Monique! You made my day! I’m far from an expert photographer/stager, but I try– and it definitely helps when you have pretty subject material (ie sangria). 🙂

    This sounds and looks so good and refreshing. As much as I hear about Sangria I have never had it. I am certainly not a wiz in the kitchen but this recipe looks easy enough that even I can make it. And make it I am certainly going to do.
