    Serves: 4 

    • 150g caster sugar
    • 40g fresh basil leaves
    • 800ml peach juice
    • 60ml fresh lemon juice
    • 1 (750ml) bottle white wine such as Pinot Grigio

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Extra time:20min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. In a saucepan, combine the sugar, basil leaves, half of the peach juice and lemon juice. Bring to a simmer, crushing the basil leaves with the back of a spoon to release their flavour. Simmer just long enough to melt the sugar, then remove from the heat and allow to cool.
    2. Strain the basil mixture into a glass jug filled with ice cubes. Pour in wine and remaining peach juice. Stir briefly and serve.

    I took this recipe to a Sangria Party and there was a contest with 25 other Sangria Recipes... this one was the WINNER! It was excellent!  -  03 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Only 3 stars, b/c to me, it needs some work. I just tasted like peach nectar... and why ADD sugar to peach nectar, I'm not sure. I am going to try again with different ratios. Maybe two bottles of wine to 3 cups nectar, 1 cup basil, juice of two lemons, and maybe, just maybe 1/2 cup sugar. Thanks for the recipe though, I would not have thought of this combination. Just needs a little tweaking for my tastes. Take care!  -  12 Jun 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Oh! My! Gawd Becky! This recipe is amazing and I'm always asked for it when I serve it. I do use Sprite zero to cut calories and probably add extra triple sec for a bigger buzz. Lol. So delicious and perfect for a hot summer day.  -  23 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
