This recipe is in partnership with CK Mondavi & Family. All thoughts are my own.
Tomorrow is the first day of fall! After a very warm summer I’m hoping cooler weather is on its way soon. This is a yummy sangria recipe that’s perfect for transitioning from summer to fall! I normally prefer a white wine sangria but I associate white wine with summer, since it’s a little lighter. Since this is a red sangria made with a summer fruit, peach, it’s perfect for summer AND fall! For my red wine, I used the CK Mondavi and Family Scarlet Five. It is blended with 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 13% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc, and 1% Malbec. I’m not a huge red wine drinker but I really enjoyed this blend. Cabernet is my favorite red, so I guess I shouldn’t be too surprised! (If you’d like to learn more about CK Mondavi and Family wines, please see this post.)
I encourage you to give this wine a try and let me know what you think!
Peach Blackberry Sangria
Step 1 – Carefully muddle a few blackberries at the bottom of a wine glass.
Step 2 – Add ice and pour wine over the ice and blackberries. Fill the glass about halfway.
Step 3 – Add 1 or 2 ounces of peach flavored vodka. (I like Ciroc because it’s made with grapes, not grain or corn!)
Mix well and garnish with a peach slice and blackberry, if you wish.
There, wasn’t that easy? Enjoy this delicious drink and the breezy fall weather!
