DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the orange into thin slices, and then cut the slices into wedges, and place in a large pitcher.
  • Cut one long slice of rind from the lemon and add to the oranges.
  • Slice completely around the peaches, cutting down to the pit, and twist the halves in opposite directions until the 2 halves come apart.
  • Remove and discard the pits, slice the peaches and add to the oranges.
  • Add the sugar to the fruit and stir.
  • Pour in the wine and stir until the sugar dissolves.
  • Taste and add more sugar or a squeeze or 2 of lemon juice to taste.
  • Chill for at least an hour.
  • When ready to serve, use a long handled spoon to stir and press the fruit against the side of the pitcher to extract some of the juice.
  • Put the ice into glasses and pour the chilled Sangria over and add some fruit from the pitcher to each glass.
