Love and Confections: Cherry, Peach & Raspberry Sangria

Cherry, Peach & Raspberry Sangria

Cherry, Peach and Raspberry Sangria is one of the my favorite cocktails because it is so easy to make, incredibly delicious, and perfect for any occasion.



 I made this sangria a few times this past Summer, and every time, it was finished before I could get any pictures, so here it finally is. Cherry, Peach and Raspberry Sangria is that good! I made this sangria for a few parties and it was a hit. The flavor combination is so refreshing and perfect for Summer.


I was given a gorgeous box of cherries from my friends at Stemilt, and have made a few goodies with them including this Sangria back in July. The cherries were gorgeous and the delivery guy knows me well enough now that when I start jumping up and down with excitement about a delivery, he doesn't ask questions.


You would be excited too if you got a delivery like this. As soon as I received the cherries I dived right in. Fresh cherries are so amazing. I also love to pit and freeze them, so I have cherries year-round. I hope I can visit the Stemilt orchards in person one day soon. I have loved cherry season and can't wait for their apples and all the wonderful Fall baking I plan on doing with them.
