This recipe came inside of a Weight Watchers Weekly, which is handed out at Weight Watchers meetings. It looked good, easy to make, and, from some reviews given at one of the meetings, I knew I had to try it.
Ingredients: 750 ml Riesling (or dry white wine – I had Pinot Grigio in my wine rack), 1 ½ cups diet peach iced tea, ¼ cup peach schnapps, 3 ripe peaches (pitted and thinly sliced – you may substitute frozen peaches), 1 large granny smith apply (thinly sliced), 1 lemon (thinly sliced), 1 ½ cups diet lemon-lime soda
Put the wine, peach tea, peach schnapps, and fresh fruit into a pitcher or container and place in the fridge for at least 3 hours (overnight, if possible). Add the lemon-lime soda to the pitcher when ready to serve.
There isn’t really a lot for me to write about this – it was REALLY good and simple to make. I was a little curious about how the tea would mix in with the other flavors, but you don’t taste tea at all. Since I was not at all planning to consume this entire pitcher in one evening, I opted to add the soda to each glass as I served it rather than to the pitcher. This way, I was able to control the proportions in each glass. So, my first glass was sangria with a bit of soda, as intended. My second glass, however, was more of a sangria spritzer. Oh, and while sipping, eat some of those peach and apple slices that were marinating in the mixture– they are fabulous! This would be fantastic to enjoy with a variety of meals – I had it along with my Slow Cooked Jerk Pork and Caribbean Salsa. Cheers!
