I was recently reading the magazine Every Day with Rachel Ray
(catchy little title) and came across a recipe for a sangria that sounds delicious for those cold winter days. So I thought, why not ditch the usual coffee or hot chocolate and warm up with a little sangria. And with romance on the minds of many, it’s the perfect drink for a night snuggled with your sweetie in front of the fire. I’ll leave the rest of the details to your imagination….
Warm Cherry and Peach Sangria
In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup frozen
peaches, 1 cup frozen cherries and 1/4 cup sugar. Let stand until
thawed, about 10 minutes. In a medium pot, bring one 750 ml bottle dry
red wine, such as rioja, 2 whole star anise (optional) and the fruit
mixture to a simmer over medium-high heat. Remove from the heat and
stir in 1/4 cup peach schnapps; discard the star anise, if used.
