Peaches & Cream "Sangria"...Floats!
(Float optional, But Why the Heck Not?)
While this might sound like an all-but-the-kitchen-sink moment, our pairing pro Miss Nik knows what she’s talking about. Snag our amazing Missouri peaches right now while they’re at the top of their game and slice 4 into a pitcher with a bottle of our super affordable Cautivo Chardonnay ($2.99/bottle!!!) to blend flavors for an hour.
Pour in 2 cans of Blue Sky Cream Soda (yes, really!), 2 oz. of brandy if you like, muddle or mush the peaches a bit and pour into glasses, adding a few frozen raspberries or strawberries and a sprig of mint if you please!
Here’s the recipe in a more traditional recipe form! Props to Miss Nik, New Pi Mistress of Wine & Cheese, for creating it!
Peaches and Cream “Sangria”
- 4 Missouri Peaches, cut into wedges
- 1 bottle Cautivo Chardonnay, chilled
- 2 cans Blue Sky Cream Soda (cane sugar soda – no corn syrup!), chilled
- 2 oz Brandy, optional
- ½ cup frozen raspberries or strawberries, optional
Place peach slices in a large pitcher.
Add Cautivo Chardonnay and chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Once the flavors have had time to blend, add brandy.
Muddle lightly with the back of a large spoon, and add the cream soda.
Divide mixture into four mason jars, placing several peach slices in each jar.
Garnish with a sprig of mint, if desired.
For a pop of color and flavor, add a few frozen raspberries or strawberries before serving.
And make sure to eat the wine-soaked peach slices – they’re extra delicious!

For a really special light summer dessert, add a generous scoop of vanilla ice cream to each jar and revel in the glory of it all!
