Peaches are plentiful in the summer months (and even into the early fall), so it makes sense to flavor this delicious sangria around the fruit this time of year.
It’s also a great cocktail to serve at summer gatherings. I have served it at backyard brunches and at summer showers, and it is always a crowd-pleaser. It is a refreshing drink and couldn’t be any easier to make, which makes it excellent for serving to guests.
Growing up with my Italian family, it was a regular occurrence to be served peaches after dinner. But not just any peaches, these peaches were soaked in red wine. I honestly believed this was common in every family. Imagine the surprise of my friend’s mother when she offered me a peach one day and I declined because I only like my peaches with wine. Ha!!
Peach Sangria with Berries
This recipe will make about 6 servings. It can easily be doubled or tripled if needed.
Choosing which red wine to use is completely up to you. I tend to like my sangria to be very sweet, so I stick with a less intense wine. The fruit will make the sangria sweet on its own, so if you don’t like a sweetness overload you may want a more full-body variety of wine.
Easy Steps To Make Sangria
Slice your strawberries, peaches, and oranges. I never peel the skin off, but feel free to do so if you want. If you must use frozen berries and peaches, be sure to thaw them beforehand. I recommend using fresh fruit if possible.
Add the fruit to a large pitcher. I use a large wooden spoon to gently muddle the fruit to help release the juices.
Gently stir up the pitcher before pouring it into a glass over ice. If you want, garnish the glass with an orange slice.
Leftover sangria can be stored in the fridge for about 2 days, but the fruit will get mushy beyond that. If you want to store it longer, strain the fruit and it will be delicious for another 5 days.

For a kid-friendly or non-alcoholic version of this drink, swap out the red wine for an equal amount of grape juice, and swap the Prosecco with an equal amount of ginger ale or sparkling water.
Peach Sangria for Fall
In the early fall months, peaches are still in season. I like to omit the berries and place a few cinnamon sticks in the pitcher instead. I also switch out my sweet red for a dry red wine. The cinnamon, peach, and orange flavors also go great with a dry white, if you prefer.
Whether you are enjoying it in the summer or fall, this sangria makes a flavorful drink thanks to the rich combination of fresh fruits and spirits.
