Sparkling Peach Sangria

This sparkling peach sangria makes a refreshing party drink that is perfect for a summer party.  Plus it looks pretty in a clear dispenser.


Let’s be honest here. How cute is our drink dispenser? We seem so pretentious, I’m sure, with that monogrammed ish going on but I love that it’s so personalized. We got it as a housewarming gift from Jason’s brother & sister-in-law and never had a chance to really use it until now. Sure, I “tested” it by filling it up with water and seeing if the spout would work but I never put an actual drink in it til this past weekend when we threw a housewarming party.


First, can I give some party 101 etiquette in case you might’ve forgotten your manners – I highly doubt you have since we’re all very classy people here, but just in case, I want to throw some pointers out there so you don’t give the host of a party some kind of aneurysm.

If you’re invited to a party, you need to RSVP! How does the host know how much food to make if s/he doesn’t know how many are actually coming? If you need to cancel last minute, fine, but an hour before the event? That’s crappy. Unless you got some kinda flat tire or serious emergency, I’m not going to buy it. “We decided to go out of town last minute” is complete crap to me. Even if you did decide to go out of town last minute, I’m sure more than an hour’s notice was possible.


It just kinda sucks when you have to scrap the entire menu a few hours before because you find out like 3948573498 people decided to be poop-heads and not come.

ANYWAY! What makes it all better is having a nice refreshing drink out of your awesome monogrammed drink dispenser.

I might’ve made this drink WAY too strong. I didn’t test it before serving it to people, but everyone seemed to like it a lot and didn’t think it was strong (or was it cause they were seriously already drunk from that first sip?). The peach is a nice subtle flavor and the peach slices are awesome to have afterwards as a boozy treat ;)

The best idea I have seen yet was the invite to my friends rehearsal dinner from the soon to be mother-in-law. She simply put- call if you will NOT be attending otherwise I will assume you are coming. I thought that was a heinous idea! I would imagine you get a better response from the ones that can't make it that way and it was nice not having to RSVP myself since I was going :) Oh and I think this recipe sounds amaaaaazing! Love sangria, love peaches, and love vodka :) Have you tried it with some frozen peaches as well to keep it chilled while sitting on a counter top?

When people do not RSVP or drop out at the last minute with a lame excuse, guess what, they are dropped off the invite list for any future parties. They were not real friends anyway if they have no consideration for your time and money so why waste time and effort on them. I can always make more friends. I love your Sangria recipe and the dispenser is truly worth borrowing and never returning! LOL That is another pet peeve we will discuss at another time.!!
