How to Make It
  1. Pour the wine into a pitcher.
  2. Squeeze the juice from the citrus wedges into the wine. Toss in the wedges, removing the seeds if possible.
  3. Add brandy (if desired) and add the sugar before stirring.
  4. Chill overnight.
  5. Add ginger ale or club soda just before serving.

Wine to Use?

Ask for a dry, crisp, and unoaked wine. Most sangrias get their sweetness and full-flavor from fruit or additional sugar so we prefer wines on the drier side. Some particular types to look for: Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling (if it’s dry), and Vinho Verde (a Portuguese white wine)

Fruit Choices ?

Combine sugar, Calvados, lime, lemon, peaches and apples in a large pitcher. Cover with 1 bottle of Rioja wine and chill sangria several hours. To serve, spoon fruits into glasses or goblets, adding a few fresh raspberries in each glass, pour wine over top of the fruit.

Death, Taxes, and Peach Sangria from A Tara Holloway Novel series

Diane Kelly

When it comes to exposing tax fraud, Tara and her partner Eddie are really cleaning up. From their brilliant takedown of the disappearing “Tax Wizard” to their perfectly planned downfall of the “Deduction Diva,” they’ve earned the respect of their peers at Criminal Investigations. Now Tara’s ready to celebrate with an ice-cold pitcher of peach sangria—even if her next case is totally the pits…

Tara’s looking forward to a challenge but, back at the office, everyone’s looking for love. Her boss Lu “The Lobo” Lobozinski and office virgin Josh Schmidt are signing up for an online dating service, and—to Tara’s dismay—so is her crush, Special Agent Nick Pratt. Tara’s trying to act chill. But when she learns that her next case involves cash-funneling to terrorists, it’s not just her love life that’s on the rocks. It’s her life, period.
