A Dose of Wine...cuz it's Summertime.

What's more summer than white wine and fruit? Combined it makes for the perfect summer sip. It's super easy to make and an ideal choice for outdoor dining. When I came across this recipe I just imagined riding bikes with friends and ending the day with a refreshing pitcher of this on the patio. Can you see it yet? I hope to give this recipe a try and mark another item off my summer to-do list! What's your favorite summertime sip?

White Peach Sangria
-1/4 cup brandy
-1/4 cup sugar
-2 firm ripe peaches, halved, pitted, and thinly sliced
-1/2 honeydew melon, seeded, peeled, cut lengthwise into thirds, and sliced thinly crosswise (4 cups)
-1 bottle white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, well-chilled
-1 can (12 ounces) or (1 1/2 cups) seltzer or club soda
-Ice cubes, for serving

1.In a large bowl or pitcher combine brandy and sugar. Let stand 5 minutes; stir to dissolve sugar. Add fruit and wine to brandy mixture; stir. Just before serving, add seltzer, and stir again. Serve over ice.
