Spicy Peach Sangria

Back when I lived in Georgia I had a mean sweet tooth for anything with peaches in it. It didn't help that it was readily available seeing it's the state fruit. You name it: peach cobbler, peach tea, peaches and cream, and I'll stop there before I sound like Bubba from Forrest Gump. When I moved to Texas though I couldn't help but put the sweet southern comforts behind me and indulge in the spicy cuisine that surrounds Houston. I traded in my peaches for jalapeños and it's been a blessed life since.

I'll be the first to admit that I love the food here in Texas and if I ever move I'm not sure how I will cope. Yet when I do have peaches now, it brings me back to my home in childhood. My grandmother making dessert, playing baseball in the cul-de-sac with my neighbors, and that shift in the air you can almost smell that says summer is coming. I wanted to go back to those moments this week but still keep the roots of the place I call home now. By bringing together the sweetness of Georgia and the spice of Texas, I've made a sangria that is not only easy as pie but packed full of flavor. I can't believe I haven't been combining the two together sooner! This has the husband seal of approval for deliciousness and ease. Trust me, he's our hand model in these photos who learned how to make it in action. 

So join me for a little walk through the sweet foothills of the Appalachian alongside my modern love for the heat of Texas.

Spicy Peach Sangria
A delicious blend of spicy jalapeno dry white wine, peaches, citrus, and sparkling flavored water. This is the perfect summer sangria with a lot of flavor.
Ingredients
  • 1 Bottle Jalapino White Wine
  • 6 ounces La Croix Pomme Baya
  • 16 ounces Frozen Peaches
  • 16 ounces Citrus (Limes, Lemons, Oranges)
Instructions
Taking any jalapeno/spicy white wine, I'm using Cabanero Jalapino White, add it to a pitcher. Followed by 6 ounces (half can of La Croix) of sparkling flavored water of your choice. I use La Croix Pomme Baya to give a crisp apple flavor to the mixture. After that add in your citrus and your frozen peaches. Stir until blended then let it stand in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. The longer the more the flavors combine, however if you go over one hour, do not add in the sparkling water until ready to serve. Else wise it will eventually go flat. When ready to serve give it another good stir. Pour into wine or rocks glasses filled with ice and fruit from the sangria.

It's a dump and go recipe which I love. I also adore how the flavors meld to give you the spice from the Cabanero Jalapino (I got mine from H-E-B) and then how the peaches mellow it out with sweetness. I believe it pairs wonderful with like minded spicy foods, salads, chicken, and sharp cheeses. I hope you enjoy this taste of my two homes.
