Sparkling Peach Sangria with Fresh Mint
1- 750 mL bottle sparkling white wine of your choice* (vegan wine options can be found at barnivore.com)
2-4 tablespoons agave nectar (more for a sweeter drink)
1 lemon, freshly squeezed
1 large peach, sliced OR cubed
5-7 sprigs of fresh mint
Turbinado sugar, for rim garnish (optional)
Pour your wine into a mixing bowl (or saucepan, or whatever container you like. If you're into making this IN the bottle...GO FOR IT!)
Mix in the agave nectar & freshly squeezed lemon juice, then toss in the peach slices and mint sprigs. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours, then serve with some of the boozy peach slices and a fresh mint sprig. Add ice if you like it.
To line the glass rims in sugar, squeeze a slice of lemon around the entire rim of the cup and dip the cup, upside down, into a small plate of sugar before serving. The lemon juice sticks to the sugar and looks pretty fancy when you have guests. Plus, if you like a sweet drink, this sugar rim will lighten up each sip.
*It should be noted that Sparkling White Wine is DIFFERENT than Champagne. Feel free to try it with Champagne, but no guarantees, 'cause we didn't try it.
