Friday's Favorites ~It's a Linky Party~

I♥ Friday!
It is time to show off our Favorites.

My favorite this week is just in time for another hot weekend...laying around the pool~
Peach-Basil Sangria
3/4 cup white sugar
1 cup loosely packed fresh basil leaves
1 can peach nectar
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 fresh peach and orange
1 (750 milliliter) bottle white wine
In a small sauce pan heat the peach nectar and lemon juice with the sugar, stir until combined. Add torn fresh basil and stir. Remove from the heat and allow to sit to infuse the flavor of the basil. Slice firm peaches and oranges and place in a glass pitcher. Strain in infused peach juice to remove basil bits. Add white wine and chill. Taste to adjust sweetness.
What's not to ♥ about that?

Come join the party ~ Y'all share your favorites for this friday.

Sandi I will be taking your advice...I'll be getting a new pic.

I have never had sangria before but I want to try it. Your recipe sounds unique and delicious! I am sure it is a hit at a party.

Kat said...! Does that sound delish?!

Question - just how long do you have to wait for the basil to infuse? In other words, how quickly can it be put together...and ready to drink? wink wink

Happy weekend!

I haven't had Sangria since a bad experience at a friend's house. It was so utterly bad. I will have to try this.

Sandi, that sangria recipe looks like it would hit the spot.
