Here is the long awaited adult -friendly sangria post I promised you. This a continuation recipe to the lavender simple syrup recipe found here. You may increase or decrease the amount of lavender syrup depending on your sweetness preference. I found that this is best served right away and chilled.r
So with that said, after countless counter top spillage and 3 chardonnay bottles later…I present to you this grown up summer pick-me-up. A whole pitcher will do the trick (wink wink)
1 bottle white wine (I used Chardonnay)
1 -1/4 cup peach juice
1/4 cup lavender syrup
2 ripe white peach, seeded and sliced into wedges
1 cup sliced strawberries, optional
In a large pitcher combine wine, peach juice and lavender syrup.
With a wooden spoon stir to fully dissolve the simple syrup and refrigerate for about 1 hour for a full on peach flavor.
Right before serving, add in additional fresh peach and strawberry slices.
*For an extra touch and lavender flavor, serve each cup with a sprig of fresh or dried lavender.
