Peach & mint sparkling sangria


As 4th of July weather was party hosts' worst nightmare where we are, we pushed back the party one day and wow, what a great decision. What a beautiful weather and fortunately a lot of our friends could still make it despite the last minute change of the date. Thanks everyone who came and made the party so much fun!

There are countless fabulous summer drinks to enjoy, it was hard to decide on the signature cocktail. I knew many of us liked sparkling drink that is fruity. So I went out to the herb garden, got some mint and started working on it. Hardest part of this is waiting, right? As I used moscato, I didn't need to add any extra sugar which made me feel better. it basically the same thing as moscato is very sweet? I don't know, I just want to believe it's better for you. Try this easy to make, easy to drink sangria this summer, your summer will be extra fruity! =)

Peach & mint sparkling sangria

Ingredients :

1 bottle moscato(750ml)
1 bottle prosecco (750ml)
1 white or yellow peach, sliced
1 1/2 cup sliced grapes
2 large sprigs of mint 

Directions :

1. In a pitcher, add mint, peach, half of grapes and moscato. Let it sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours or over night.

2. While it's chilling, freeze rest of the sliced grapes for extra chill when you serve. Add frozen grapes and prosecco right before serving. 

*I use the "take out container cover method" when slicing large quantity of grapes. Put one cover right side, fill it up with grapes, cover it with another cover upside down, run a knife through in between covers while holding the top down, you'll be left with perfectly sliced grapes in no time!
