Cookout Cookin’ #2

Time for our second recipe of Cookout Cookin’! We Rowlands already kicked off the summer party season 2 weeks ago (more on that here) so I’m sharing some of my favorite party/cookout recipes with you guys every week (read about last week’s recipe here). Since Cinco de Mayo is this weekend, I figured the most fitting recipe would be a booze recipe! So today we’re making sangria! Not not to pat myself on the back too much, but I’m not a big wine drinker, at all, I prefer whiskey and rum, but I LOVE this stuff! I had at least 3 glasses (solo cup sized;)) at our party and even made a little batch for myself last weekend! So even you non-whinos are gonna love this! Ok the name of the game is Strawberry Peach Sangria and here’s what’s in it:
– 2 liters of white wine
– 3-4 cups of peach Schnapps (it depends on how peachy you want it)
– 2 cups club soda
– 2 tablespoons of sugar
– 1 can of peaches (drained)
– 1/2 a container of fresh strawberries (slice ’em how you like ’em)

Stir it all together and let it sit in the fridge for awhile, when it’s all chilled take it out and enjoy! It smells, looks and tastes delicious! Another fun idea for a cookout or summer party is to make a big batch of your favorite cocktail and have it sitting out already mixed for your guests to enjoy. We made a big batch of Bay Breeze for our party, because that’s one of Jesse’s favorite drinks. It’s 1 part cranberry juice, 1 part pineapple juice and vodka and super tasty! Other drinks that would be good in a big batch like this are margaritas and cosmos!

What’s your favorite mixed drink or kind of sangria? Are you guys partying it up for Cinco de Mayo?

  1. Your sangria looks like a cool & refreshing drink for summer :-) My favourite summer drink (weel, any time of the year, really!) is strawberry daiquiri made with Bailey’s instead of rum. It’s like a strawberry & chocolate smoothie, and it’s delicious!

  2. Looks good! I’m not typically a fan of sangria because I’ve only seen it made with red wine (which I strongly dislike) but I don’t mind white and might actually give this a shot!

    No Cinco de Mayo plans for me. I have a baby shower to go to, which is as pretty non-party as you can get.

  3. I love wine, and I love sangria. I generally drink white wine (actually, the only time I drink red is when I’m having sangria), so a white wine sangria sounds awesome!

    No Cinco de Mayo plans here. I have a much more important (well, to me) event to celebrate this Saturday–the Kentucky Derby! I’m a Kentucky girl, and while I won’t be going to the Derby this year, I will certainly be watching from home. I think we’re going to have a few people over, too. The Derby drink is the mint julep (got to like bourbon to enjoy that one), so sangria might be a good alternative for some of our non-bourbon-drinking guests.

  4. Oooooh this looks yummy. I’ve been wanting to try a sangria recipe again (the first time we made it, we overloaded it with fruit and it tasted like our compost pile…not that I frequently sample my compost pile…) and this might be just the one! Strawberries and peaches are 2 of my favorite fruits.

    • I personally wouldn’t use a moscato because its already a sweet wine and the other ingredients are very sweet. I used the dry Chardonnay to counter balance the other sweet ingredients. But if you like it super sweet then go for it! Follow your heart! 😉
