The Perfect Summer Sangria
Picture yourself on a balmy summer evening, enjoying a delightful and invigorating cocktail that truly captures the essence of the season. Look no further than Hook’d Up Bar and Grill’s Peach and Orange Blossom Sangria – it’s like a tropical getaway in a glass.
While traditional sangria blends wine with a touch of liquor, our recipe takes a lighter approach. We combine the fruity Ketel One Peach & Orange Blossom Vodka with a sweeter Riesling. This delightful twist on a classic beverage makes it an ideal choice for a summer cocktail.
Crafting the Peach and Orange Blossom Sangria
Now, let’s dive into the process of concocting a pitcher or single serving of this mouthwatering Peach and Orange Blossom Sangria. We have you covered no matter your preference!
Pitcher of Sangria Ingredients:
- 9 oz of Ketel One Peach & Orange Blossom Vodka
- 18 oz of Riesling (opt for a sweeter variety like A to Z Wineworks Riesling)
- 4.5 oz of Simple Syrup
- 1 can of Fresca Peach Citrus Soda (or any peach or orange-flavored soda water)
- Frozen Peaches
- Mint for garnish
Pitcher of Peach Orange Blossom Sangria Directions:
- In a pitcher, combine the vodka, Riesling, simple syrup, and frozen peaches. Chill the pitcher in the refrigerator.
- Just before serving, add the Peach and Citrus Soda to the pitcher.
- Serve the sangria over crushed ice, and garnish with mint for an extra touch of freshness.
Single Serving of Peach Orange Blossom Sangria:
- In a shaker, mix 1.5 oz of Peach & Orange Blossom vodka, 3 oz of Riesling, and 0.75 oz of simple syrup with ice. Shake well.
- Pour the mixture into a glass without straining.
- Top it off with approximately 2 oz of Peach and Citrus soda.
- Garnish with a slice of frozen peach and a sprig of mint.
Prefer a Martini Twist?
If you’re in the mood for a more sophisticated presentation, consider serving this delightful cocktail in a martini glass. Follow the steps above, but instead of adding the soda water, pour the mixture into a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously to chill the cocktail and allow the flavors to meld. Then, strain the mixture into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a slice of peach and a sprig of mint.
