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

  • 1 cup frozen peaches
  • 1 cup frozen cherries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 750 ml bottle dry red wine
  • 2 whole star anise (optional)
  • 1/4 cup Peach Schnapps

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.

Serves 6.
