If you were following my Instagram stories this weekend you saw that I had the most fun girls weekend in Palm Springs. My college best friends came from LA to Palm Springs for some pool time, wine drinking and lots of Love Island watching (If you aren’t watching Love Island, its a must). Palm Springs is the perfect backdrop for a summer weekend with your best friends, it’s also the most photogenic city I have ever lived in.
I prepped for the weekend the best way I know how with delicious white wine sangria with triple sec. We enjoyed this summer sangria while floating in the pool all afternoon. My girls and I love wine but when sitting in the sun all day wine isn’t always my favorite option. If I am going to drink alcohol during the day I prefer something light, fruity but not sweet and refreshing. That mixture of items is hard to find but I think this sangria really is the best option.
1 bottle of white wine (Dry wine, I used Sauvignon Blanc from California but a Pinot Grigio would also work)
1/3 cup triple sec
3 Peaches – cut in slices
1 cup of blackberries
3 limes – cut in eights
Add lime to a large pitcher and muddle with a muddler or wooden spoon for 45 seconds.
Add triple sec and muddle again to combine for 30 seconds. Add peaches, and blackberries and stir to incorporate. Then add wine and stir once more.
Taste and adjust flavor as needed, adding sweetener of choice for sweetness (agave is the best choice for sweetness), lemon or lime juice for acidity, or fruit. Stir to combine.
Fill glasses all the way up with ice and pour sangria to fill the cup until its three-quarters full. Fill the glasses the rest of the way with sparkling water, I like to use lime sparkling water for a more citrusy flavor.
- Garnish glass with peach slices and a few blackberries.
Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours, though best when enjoyed within the first 1-2 days.
I hope you LOVE this sangria! It’s:
Not too sweet
Its the perfect drink to sip in the pool with your friends while you gossip the afternoon away. In cooler weather, I love a red wine sangria with cherries, whats your favorite wine to drink during summer?
