I’ve been moving. I moved a few miles away to a new neighborhood. It’s a fabulous apartment near a fabulous park with fabulous wood floors and fabulous natural light and fabulous everything. I’m so lucky to have found it, in the price range I could afford. I love everything about it and I’ll gush to anyone who will listen.
Celebrate with me, will you?
This sangria is simple. It’s flavor teeters precariously between summer and fall. The peaches light your mouth with summer, then the caramel richness of the cognac and the complex herbal flavor of the bitters remind that fall is just around the bend.
Simple Peach Sangria
(makes 4 drinks)
1 bottle of dry white wine
3 oz. cognac
8-10 dashes of Angostura Orange Bitters
5 fresh peaches, peeled, pitted, and roughly chopped
Combine the ingredients and chill for about 8 hours. The peaches will need this time to release their flavor. Serve over ice and spoon some peach chunks onto the top if they’re not already in there.
Because there are fewer things better than booze-soaked fruit.
