Peaches are one of summer’s most tastiest fruits they also make delicious cocktails!

White Peach Sangria
Servings: 6 Servings
Ingredients:

  • 1 (750 milliliter) bottle white wine, medium sweetness (don’t use $$ wine-lower priced wines work great)
  • 3/4 cup peach flavored vodka (optional-the drink is good with just the wine)
  • 3/4 cup peach schnapps
  • 6 tablespoons frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed
  • 3-4 medium sized peaches pitted and sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups of colorful fruit (any fruit works, berries work great)
  • In a large pitcher, combine dry white wine, peach vodka, schnapps, lemonade concentrate. Stir until frozen lemonade is melted. Add sliced peaches and other fruits.
  • Refrigerate sangria until well chilled, at least 2 hours, or overnight to blend flavors. Serve over ice, and use a slotted spoon to include fruit with each serving.

Bellini…Move over Mimosa and try this delicious and very easy drink instead.

  • Champagne or Prosecco
  • Top off with Peach juice

Peach Cobbler- One of the easiest recipes we tried

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 cups fresh peach slices
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Ground cinnamon or nutmeg (optional)
Directions:
  • Melt butter in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish.
  • Combine flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, salt and milk. Stir until moistened then pour into baking dish (do not stir)
  • Bring remaining 1 cup sugar, peaches, lemon juice to a boil over high heat. Stir constantly. Pour into baking dish (do not stir) can sprinkle with cinnamon if desired.
  • Bake at 375 for 40-45 minutes until golden brown.
  • We suggest serving this warm with ice cream however it tastes great at room temperature

Grilled Peaches…you can eat them straight off the grill or top them off with something yummy

  • Cut Peaches in half & remove pits
  • Brush cut side of peach halves with olive oil and place on grill, cut side down.
  • Grill until golden brown and caramelized, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Turn peach halves over and grill until slightly soft and just warmed through, about 2 minutes longer.
    Remove from grill and eat as is or top it off with something delicious… below are some great suggestions…
  • Drizzle peaches with honey or agave and top off with fresh berries, ice cream, vanilla yogurt or whipped cream
  • Drizzle with balsamic glaze (available at Trader Joe’s) and Ricotta Cheese, garnish with mint
  • These are also great chopped up and tossed into a salad

Enjoy!!
