Peach Sangria is a light yet flavourful party drink that combines frozen peaches, red wine, cinnamon and Granny Smith apples. This punch-like cocktail offers a fresh alternative to the standard beer/wine/sparkling offering at most parties, and even though the base is red wine, it's not too heavy. In fact, peach sangria is so light and delicious that even those people who don't like red wine will think this drink is peachy keen!
